In a world where film and television trailers have reached new heights, one show must rise to the challenge… and review the best. Join hosts AJ Gutierrez and Jim Schwartz as they discuss the art and craft behind the latest, greatest and most interesting trailers Hollywood has to offer.
'Mortal Kombat' and Living in a Filthy, Waterless, Hell Hole!
In this episode we take a look at the ultra violent 'Mortal Kombat' trailer, debate the intentions of 'Cruella,' and give an oral history of the origins of "The Snyder Cut." Oh, AJ also describes what it was like to live in Texas last week.
'Godzilla vs. Kong' and WB's 'Same Day Premiere' Trailers
For our main event, we review the first trailer for 'Godzilla vs. Kong,' an upcoming Warner Bros. movie that promises an epic showdown between two of cinema's most iconic monsters. It looks big, dumb and fun – just how AJ wants it. We also have a bone to pick with another recent trailer from WB that promotes all of their movie releases for 2021.
Nothing like a Batman trailer to bring us back from hiatus. In this episode we reunite to talk exclusively about the new trailer from Matt Reeves' 'The Batman.' This episode is sponsored by our friend, Lino.
We're Trying Our Best: Trailers in the Time of COVID
As movie theaters shut down across the country, studios are delaying their movie releases and pumping the brakes on their trailers – leaving us with little to talk about. So in this episode, we set our sights on 'The Invisible Man', which recently jumped from theaters to Video On Demand, and compare the movie to its trailer. Also, in keeping up with the very timely theme of checking on each other's health, we share updates on our own experiences with COVID-19.

Jim Tested Positive for COVID-19
Jim shares what he knows about the Coronavirus after being infected by it. Conversation then turns to the changing state of movies – and if we're going to see a decline in their trailers. Finally, we draw parallels between life as we now know it and the trailer for Steven Soderbergh's 2011 outbreak horror film, 'Contagion'.
‘The (Dark) Green Knight’
In this episode, we spend way too much time discussing the SUPER TEASE camera test of ‘The Batman’. We're taken by surprise by the amazing trailer for ‘The Green Knight’. We then go into our favorite game of "guess the trope" when discussing Wes Anderson's ‘The French Dispatch’ trailer.

Trailer made was explicitly responsible for the death of my only child (adopted not as tragic). Five stars.
LOVE AJ & JIM
These guys are not only hilarious— they’re also smart and super likable. Highly recommend!
This podcast is just the best. I thought I was the only one who was obsessed with movie trailers, but then this show came along. And I am so happy. These guys are hilarious.
