Trailer Report: ‘Fifty Shades’ Again Tops Slow Week
August 31, 2014 - Fifty Shades of Grey
For a second true week, Fifty Shades of Grey was a most-viewed entrance captivate on YouTube, according to record organisation Zefr, that marks a numbers.
Only 3 trailers burst one million views for a week — an scarcely low series and an denote of a unconcern in trailer land this month.
The debut trailer for Annabelle finished in a second mark with 2 million YouTube views. The teaser for Annabelle also got a boost, rising from No. 16 final week to No. 6 this week with 858,848 views.
This is indeed a flattering good trailer for what is clearly a schlocky and campy low-budget fear flick. It sets adult a tract good and builds a decent volume of tension. And of march writer James Wan (Saw) gets distinguished billing to communicate a certain pedigree. Still, no one who sees this entrance captivate won’t consider a Child’s Play with a womanlike doll.
The film opens Oct. 3.
Also debuting in a tip 10 this week was a initial trailer for Men, Women Children, that available 867,375 YouTube views to land in a No. 5 spot.
This film has a obvious executive (Jason Reitman), a name expel (Ansel Elgort, Jennifer Garner, Adam Sandler) and an intriguing tagline (“Discover how small we know about a people we know”).
The trailer is interesting. It is all windy song and content messages superimposed on a montage of brief cuts of scenes from a movie. But ultimately, a preview falls short. This film needs a some-more candid entrance captivate that is reduction about mood and some-more about plot.
The film hits theaters on Oct. 17.
Also of note this week was The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water jumping from No. 11 to No. 4 with 899,570 views, and a Daniel Radcliffe fear film Horns (opening on Halloween day) rising from No. 12 to No. 10 with 663,613 views.
Horns‘ sum is a lowest series of views to make a tip 10 in any week so distant in 2014.
