Not only did Doctor Strange dominate the weekend box office with an impressive $85 million, the Marvel flick, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as a neurosurgeon turned sorcerer, also made its way to the top as the most-watched trailer at Tribute.ca this week.
The Mel Gibson war drama Hacksaw Ridge and its epic trailer followed closely behind the strange doctor, while the colorful second trailer for Trolls, featuring the vocal talents of Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake, landed comfortably in third.
Rounding out the top five is the thrilling trailer for Inferno, which brings back Tom Hanks as legendary symbologist Robert Langdon, and the action-packed second trailer for The Accountant, starring Ben Affleck as a book-cooking math savant. ~Shelby Morton
Check out each of the top trailers below:
Doctor Strange- A brilliant but arrogant neurosurgeon named Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) has a horrific car accident. Although his life is saved, when he wakes up in the hospital, he finds he has serious nerve damage to his hands and can no longer work as a doctor. When Strange is given a tip from someone who recovered from a similar accident, he goes on a quest for a miracle cure and finds a mystical and mysterious sorcerer called the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton). She teaches him to put his massive ego aside and instead, give himself over to the mystical arts in order to defend the world against evil.
Hacksaw Ridge- During WWII, Desmond T. Doss (Andrew Garfield) was an American army medic who refused to bear arms. In Okinawa, during the bloodiest battle of WWll, Desmond single-handedly evacuated 75 men from behind enemy lines without firing or even carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, and also became the first Conscientious Objector in American history to be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. In addition to the brutal Okinawa battle, Desmond demonstrated bravery, compassion and heroism during attacks in Guam and the Philippines.
Trolls- The overly optimistic Trolls live in a colorful, wondrous world full of song and dance. But their lives of rainbows and happiness are changed forever when the Troll-hungry Bergens invade their colorful Troll Village. Poppy (Anna Kendrick), the bright and sunny leader of the Trolls, must set off on a journey to save the town along with her polar opposite, the overly pessimistic Branch (Justin Timberlake). The mismatched duo are taken far beyond the only world they’ve ever known, and must tolerate each other long enough to get their job done.
Inferno- Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) wakes up in a hospital room in Florence, Italy with a wound on his head and no recollection of the last 48 hours. Physician Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones) explains that he’s suffering from temporary amnesia. Before he has time to figure out what’s happening to him, he learns he is being chased by the World Health Organization and a private security firm. Sienna tags along to help him solve the mystery. Langdon soon finds out that billionaire Bertrand Zobrist (Ben Foster) is too invested into the future of mankind and has plotted a deadly global genocide scheme. It is now up to Langdon to solve the clues left behind by Zobrist and save mankind from destruction.
The Accountant- Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a math genius who works in a small town office as a cover for his real job as a freelance accountant who “cooks the books” for dangerous criminal organizations. When Ray King (J.K. Simmons), the head of the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, shows interest in his activities, Christian takes on a legitimate client to throw him off. Dana (Anna Kendrick), an accounting clerk who works for the company, has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. Before going public, they hire Christian to find the missing money. As they get closer to the truth, bodies begin to pile up.
