HitFix

My favorite trailer of the year!

Clip It: Each day, Jon Davis looks at the world of trailers, featurettes, and clips and puts it all in perspective.

I've worked over here at HitFix, covering trailers for about three months, and I've never seen so many trailers in my life. As my beat comes to an end, I thought I'd take one last look at my favorite trailer. Of all the clips, trailers, and featurettes I've seen, my eyeballs never got tired of Arrival.

It had everything a good trailer needs. Mystery. Amy Adams. Aliens. Also, there was just enough sense of tone, characters, and story without giving away the whole plot of the movie.

Plus, is there any doubt that this guy is going to show up?

I'd bet my entire life on it. In fact, I've been looking forward to this and I won't accept it if my expectations aren't met. I need ALF in this movie. Please, movie people, make this happen.

Well, guys, this is my last Clip It column. I've really enjoyed spending this time with you! And come on, admit it, you liked me, too. Yeah, let's hug! Come on, open your arms, yeah that's right, wrap it around, let's do this. Alright. Talk to you soon!
