It’s been a long time, but yes, it’s back – our end-of-week viral video countdown.
This week, the flagship video of our Top 5 comes courtesy of Comic-Con 2014, which swept through San Diego last weekend. As ever, the question was which blockbuster would emerge as winner of the Hall H showcases?
Would it be the Avengers sequel? Some new Marvel movie announced on the day? Batman vs. Superman?
Nope, nope and nope. When the dust had settled, most seemed to agree that the film to get pulses racing fastest was Mad Max: Fury Road. Warner Bros. duly capitalised on the positive buzz by releasing the trailer onto the wider web. Here ‘tis.
Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron are the actors giving the Fury Road trailer its star power. And another video packing a stellar wallop is Gentlemen’s Wager, a new short film produced for Johnnie Walker Blue Label starring Jude Law.
Most of us probably never truly come to terms with the reality of aging, the loss of years, and the colossal cosmic joke we call life. Sadie has, and she’s done it by the age of five. What’s more, she’s not best pleased about it.
With Sadie having alighted so dramatically on the strangeness of time, it’s hard to avoid calling to mind Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared????, a quite frankly disturbing combination of the cuddly and the cosmic.
Let’s sign off with a dog passing out through happiness.
Well, that’s it for this week. If you want to tell us which videos we missed, let us know via Twitter @spectrecom
