From Infinite to Reminiscence, See This Week's Trailers and Posters

Plus, Disney's Jungle Cruise and the return of Gossip Girl

This week in entertainment marketing, we took nostalgic trips through the past and experienced infinite futures. Disney took us along for a popular amusement-ride turned summer blockbuster, and honestly, after a year without theme parks or summer blockbusters, it may have been the most fun I've had in 15 months. There were also werewolves on the loose and active volcanoes with mysterious cores. Plus, we saw the beginning of the end for L.A.'s finest and the return of the New York elite. 

Here's a look at some of the notable trailers and posters released this week.


Infinite

The title treatment at the end was a creative touch. As for the poster, it's hard to look away. The design is an innovative puzzle for the eyes. Stream Infinite on June 10.

Get ready for adventure because the trailer for Jungle Cruise takes you right along for the ride! The trailer is action-packed with bursts of comedic interjection and 3-D effects that make you feel like you're in the film. More than anything, it feels grandly cinematic, and what a welcome return for that feeling. Plus, you can never go wrong with a bit of CCR. I can't rave enough about the beautifully illustrated posters for the film. They have a timeless feel about them—as an excellent adventure story should. Take a ride on the Jungle Cruise on July 30.

It's also full of fun editing techniques like swift match cuts and flutter jump cuts that creatively build upon the action and suspense. The werewolves are on the prowl July 2.


Bosch

Amazon Prime Video    
Trailer Agency: Wild Card Creative Group    

The final season of Bosch is upon us, and the new trailer has fans itching with excitement. It sets up what's to come through editorial and great use of expository dialogue, but it's the musical selection, "You Can Run," that energizes this piece. Bosch is back for one final mystery on June 25.
