Searching through Ștefan Dobroiu’s goodie basket for fresh & hot trailers, presented every month on a Wednesday, by Ștefan Dobroiu
October’s Trailer Recommendations
Since Les films de Cannes à Bucarest is one of the festivals that fully meet the tastes of our readers, below is a selection of the five most tempting titles screening at this year’s edition (October 22-31) which starts next Friday. The list of recommendations is completed by a couple of fresh out of the oven trailers, especially one with millions of views in just a few days.
September’s Trailer Recommendations
Deep breath in and let’s make the most of it while cinemas still have their doors open and are not forced to close once again. We picked up some of the most tempting Romanian films that are scheduled to appear this fall, plus titles that had their world premiere at the Venice Film Festival and a fantasy series all set to make waves in November.
July’s Trailer Recommendations
The Cannes Film Festival dominates the film scene in July, and along with it, the biggest film event in Romania, Transilvania IFF. Let’s celebrate these two festivals with this month’s selection of trailers, where we also add a guilty pleasure from Netflix.
June’s Trailer Recommendations
The Cannes Film Festival has recently announced the Official Selection for 2021 (we can’t overlook Radu Muntean’s Intregalde in the Directors’ Fortnight / Quinzaine des Réalisateurs section), so it’s only fair that we get a glimpse into their program. At the same time, we can’t miss out on the latest titles showcased by streaming platforms.
May’s Trailer Recommendations
Just a few more months until this year’s edition of Cannes Film Festival, and starting with June, going to the cinema may become a viable option all over the country. Until then, we continue our leisure time on streaming platforms.
April’s Trailer Recommendations
Is it really possible for cinemas to reopen anytime soon? This month’s trailer offer includes a movie that will be released in theaters on May 14 (fingers crossed!). Otherwise, the focus remains on streaming platforms.
March’s Trailer Recommendations
With cinemas being closed once again by the authorities and the summer days that carry the promise of outdoor screenings still far away from us, there’s nothing else to do but remain online, at least for some of these trailer recommendations. FYI, our offer also includes a Hollywood blockbuster with several young Romanian actors starring in supporting roles.
February’s Trailer Recommendations
Usually, February feels like a black hole when it comes to news on movie releases, since many of the upcoming productions are waiting either to get selected in festivals or for the official announcement of these selections before they can kick off their promo campaigns. So, we turned to guilty pleasures, superheroes, a bit of voyeurism and… the “CODA case”.
December’s Trailer Recommendations
For many years now, December has been the month when we would meet the films expected to be in the race for the incoming Oscars. Here are some of the candidates, one or two titles that might come as guilty pleasures, but also something that we could watch in February, on Valentine’s Day.
November's Trailer Recommendations
In November, the entire cinema network in Romania yielded to the cold weather and the uncertainty caused by the pandemic, therefore we completely turned to the available streaming platforms. Here is a selection of new trailers, fresh out of the oven, announcing mostly titles that will be released online this month or the next.
October's Trailer Recommendations
It’s now October, and because of the pandemic, the authorities are forced once again to close the cinema halls, although no cinema has been identified as a source of infection. When moviegoers and festivals find shelter online, I might as well come with an offer of trailers, new and old, and titles already or soon to be available on various online platforms.
