Top 10 Trailers of April 2018

This month… video games, superheroes and popular franchises reign supreme! Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’ll be counting down the Top 10 Trailers of April 2018.
For this list, we’ve ranked the best film, TV and video game trailers released throughout the month of April.

#10: “Hotel Artemis” (2018)

Sterling K. Brown is an actor to watch in 2018 thanks to his star-making role on the hit series, “This Is Us”. A moving performance in “Black Panther” has since introduced him to more action-oriented viewers, and now he’s flexing that popularity in this action thriller alongside the likes of Jodie Foster, Sofia Boutella and the great Jeff Goldblum, who’s popping up a lot these days. The “Hotel Artemis,” despite its appearance as a shabby vintage hotel, actually serves as a high tech underground hospital for criminals. When circumstances bring armed conflict to the usually neutral-by-rule establishment, all hell breaks loose. Suffice it to say, this ensemble film looks to be one roller coaster of a ride!

#9: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (2018)

If you’ll recall, Tropical Freeze claimed the number 5 spot on our list of Top 10 Donkey Kong games, which, in a franchise this prolific, is high praise indeed. Now, the hit game has earned itself a port to the Nintendo Switch. It promises all the fun of the original 2014 Wii U game but with the addition of a new playable character, Funky Kong, and an easy setting, dubbed “Funky Mode”, which is sure to appeal to more casual gamers. If you’ve lost touch with the Donkey Kong franchise over the years, consider this the perfect time to reconnect. One look at this trailer will have your inner child barrel rolling with joy.

#8: “Johnny English Strikes Again” (2018)

Rowan Atkinson’s unforgettable character, Mr. Bean, has earned the British actor the title of pop culture icon, and an eternal place in our hearts. But in terms of notable roles, his turn as Johnny English, the similarly inept and bumbling secret agent, is a close second. In this third instalment, “Johnny English Strikes Again”, Atkinson returns as the lovably incompetent MI7 agent, this time charged with saving his fellow secret agents from a dastardly hacker who has uncovered the identities of Britain’s leading spies. It promises to be a fun ride for the whole family, and a welcome return to the big screen for one of the greatest physical comedians in the biz.

#7: Marvel's Spider-Man (2018)

In 2016, Spider-man joined his fellow Avengers as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and then, in 2017, starred in arguably the best live-action Spidey flick since oh, around 2004. Armed with a newly restored faith in the character’s commercial direction, we’re hoping that “Marvel’s Spider-Man” can similarly deliver on the video game front. The trailer for the game, shown at E3 2017, made a big impact, with some fans going so far as to draw comparisons to fan favorite spidey game, Spider-Man 2. Though this 30 second trailer is brief, the snippets of footage shown are nonetheless enticing, as is the pre-order promise of alternate suits! Who wouldn’t want to play as Spider-Punk?

#6: “Killing Eve” (2018-)

Sandra Oh became a bona fide television star with her role as Cristina Yang on the hugely successful ABC medical drama, “Grey’s Anatomy”. With her new series “Killing Eve”, she’s once again making waves in the world of network television. This BBC America series follows Sandra Oh’s Eve Polastri, an MI5 officer pursuing a brilliant sociopathic killer known as Villanelle, and the complex dynamic that plays out between the two women. From episode one, viewers were hooked, sparking a whole lot of interest when BBC America released this short, but moody and intriguing teaser trailer for episode 2. New episodes Sundays at 8PM? As if we could forget!

#5: “Solo: A Star Wars Story” (2018)

This Star Wars anthology film’s production was plagued with all kinds of rumors, which, coupled with a fourth-quarter change of director, had many folks willing to write this movie off as a trainwreck before even seeing the first trailer. But with every new bit of footage, we’re given more and more reason to hope for yet another fun trip to a galaxy far far away. In this trailer, we not only get a better sense of the story, but a clear sense of the tone. This really feels like a tense, high stakes, ensemble heist film. The trailer even gets a couple of genuine laughs, and teases some absolutely astounding action set pieces.

#4: Kingdom Hearts 3 (2018)

Kingdom Hearts 3 has teased us with a lot of great trailers over the last year, and the exciting reveals just keep on coming. In the most high profile trailers, we’ve been introduced to new Pixar-themed worlds, but with this one, we step into the uniquely retro “Classic Kingdom”. In this special world, for which details are still relatively scarce, players will have access to variety of 2D mini-games inspired by early LCD handheld games, like those made by Tiger Electronics back in the day, as well as the Nintendo line of Game & Watch titles. As this trailer proves, Square Enix clearly isn’t short on novel ideas or fun concepts.

#3: “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” (2018)

Talk about a freaking marketing curveball! Based on the footage we’d seen up to this point, the Jurassic World sequel was seemingly all about saving dinosaurs from the ill-fated Isla Nublar. But with the release of this final trailer… the plot just got way more complicated. We learn about a sinister plot to sell the dinosaurs to the highest bidder, and meet the film’s big bad dino - a genetically engineered super killer, with claws that would give Elm Street Freddy or Wolverine nightmares. Not only does this promise a dino adventure of massive scale, but it also teases a team up between Grady and Blue, as well as some seriously creepy horror movie moments.

#2: “Incredibles 2” (2018)

We as viewers had to wait a full 14 years for a follow-up to this fan-favorite Pixar film, . . .but in the world of our titular family, we’re picking up right after the events of the first movie! In this hilarious and exhilarating trailer, we get that classic “Incredibles” balance between domestic family life and superheroics, but this time, it’s Mr. Incredible who’s staying at home with the kids - and with a newly powered Jack-Jack no less. Elastigirl, for her part, is charged with getting out there and bringing superheroes back into the limelight. The action looks awesome, the jokes as funny as always, and the characters, every bit as charming as we remember.

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions:

#1: “Deadpool 2 (2018)

Honestly, with each new Deadpool trailer, we find ourselves asking… “how could this possibly get any better?” And then they go ahead and release new footage that somehow - despite seemingly insurmountable odds - makes us even MORE excited about this film. In this final trailer, it’s all about bringing together the team - and boy oh boy, has our merc with a mouth ever assembled a unique squad. From Terry Crews’ muscle-bound Bedlam to Shatterstar’s ridiculous, comics-accurate costume from the ‘90s, we’re looking at “super duper” team for the ages. Domino, in particular, seems primed to be a standout character. With Wade breaking the fourth wall left right and center, it’s kind of a perfect Deadpool trailer.
