This past week was dominated by a few high-profile trailers like Live by Night, Free Fire, and another or two. And whenever that happens, a handful (or more) of trailers get pushed to the side with the average movie-going audience. With that, what I try to do each week is bring you all those trailers that are overshadowed by the much bigger trailers.
Now usually, any of these trailers would be up on the site, with its own post. But because the past week included a number of trailers and because there’s a small number of us, I decided to include the following four trailers in our weekly 4 Trailers segment. But don’t get me wrong, just because they are in this post doesn’t mean they are lesser by any means.
