New ‘Raya and the Last Dragon’ Trailer Could Have Been Much Darker

IMAGE VIA IGN

Disney’s new movie, Raya and the Last Dragon, gains a new trailer and posters today. Set to release on March 5th in theaters and for premiere access Disney+ users, the movie centers on a girl named Raya and her misfit crew as the look for the last dragon to unite their world. Things become complicated as she finally finds the dragon only to learn that she is a misfit herself, and still, she and this crew must find a way to unite all the nations once and for all.

The new trailer surprised viewers as one of the main stars was a “con-baby,” a baby who comes up to Raya under the muse of being lost but is actually a con artist. The altercation that follows shows Raya and the baby showing off their skills and precision, as well as Raya potentially getting the baby to join her team to look for the dragon.

The team from the movie comes from many of the same producers and artists as Moana and Frozen, which is evident in the art style from the trailer. Although this movie features a highly anticipated upgrade to the animation, one that will show the various worlds and characters of all shapes and sizes.

One of the most surprising and exciting things about the movie, however, came from one of the film’s directors.

There was buzz for this trailer starting yesterday when The Disinsider shared that Raya, which is inspired loosely on the style of Jean Wick, has a cut that could have gotten an R rating. Director Carlos Lôpez Estrada is quoted saying,

“There may ha ve been some things that if we were to include would give s an R rating for violence. Just so you know. There is a cut of the movie with broken bones and stuff.”

Twitter took this in stride, with many wishing they could see this cut with a darker take on the typical Disney animation.

Regardless of if we get to see this other version or not, the new trailer has been blowing up on social media and hype for the movie is at an all time high. Will you be seeing this movie upon release March 5th? We sure will!

‘Joker’ Movie Releases Final, Epic Looking Trailer!

 

The Joker film is a much hyped movie of 2019, transcending beyond the notions of a ‘comic book’ to become a full blown potential for Oscar nominations. The first trailer debuted in April of 2019, to much praise and excitement, especially as Joaquin Phoenix’s performance as the Clown Prince of Crime. The Joker film is the latest film from the director of The Hangover and War Dogs, with this latest film trailer to only increase fan anticipation of the gritty super villain flick.

 

 

Joker takes place in the 1980s, telling the origin of the famous Batman villain whose failed attempts to become a comedian force him on a descent into madness that ends with him becoming the Joker.  The supporting cast includes Robert DeNiro as talk-show host Murray Franklin, Zazie Beetz as Arthur’s love interest Sophie Durmond, and Frances Conroy as Arthur’s mother Penny.

 

 

The film has been described as drawing from 1970s gangster movies, specifically Mean Streets, among others. Phoenix revealed earlier this month that in order to play the role, he studied victims of Pathological Laughter or Crying. The victims suffer from involuntary laughter and crying, usually separate fro any kind of emotional trigger.

This showcases in the new footage in the final trailer, where Joaquin Phoenix is clearly playing a man on the brink. Arthur Fleck, as he is known before he becomes the Joker, seems a man on the brink of madness. He confesses to his therapist that he has nothing but ‘negative thoughts’. Footage reveals he’s attempting to be a comedian, but he’s laugh at on stage, crippling his self-esteem.

Slowly, the trailer takes a darker turn as Joaquin begins spiraling towards what he’ll become. We see glimpses of him applying the white face paint, as well as Arthur instigating what appears to be a revolution. People begin to riot in the streets, wearing clown masks and holding up signs that proclaim ‘We are all clowns’.

Other tantalizing imagery includes Robert DeNiro as a comedian that the Joker idolizes and Thomas Wayne, Mayor of Gotham, punching Arthur after he refuses to stop laughing.

Warner Bros has released the official plot synopsis:

 

Director Todd Phillips’ Joker centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone fictional story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck, who is indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, is of a man struggling to find his way in Gotham’s fractured society. A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds the joke always seems to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one bad decision that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty character study.

 

But the best image when Arthur, now decked in full Joker costume, asks to be introduced on stage as the Joker. We can’t wait to see this movie, as it looks haunting, surreal, and a more adult, darker movie that might even garner some nominations at the Oscars.

Are you looking forward to seeing the killer clown arrive? The Joker arrives in cinemas October 4th.
