Thursday Trailer Tap – 01/25/18

by Duwayne Tso

Cocktails and Movies and Trailers, Oh My! Thursday Trailer Tap
Are you sitting in your cubicle with stacks of TPS reports to go through? Listening to that conference call where everyone is talking at the same time about nothing at all that matters? Stuck at the water cooler hearing how Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle took the #1 spot for the 2nd week in a row! Need something to watch with that flask in your desk and that burned microwave popcorn from the break room? Let us share movie trailers with you. Now that the summer season is a distant image in our rear-view mirror, we have gotten a lot more movie trailers to view for this week’s The Thursday Trailer Tap

This week things get kicked back into gear! This week we have four great movie trailers, nine good movie trailers and no stinkers. This week we have TWO trailers we are seeing for the first time and TWO new trailers for movies we have previewed in the past. This week we have trailers about …l!

While El Jefe mixes himself another afternoon cocktail, let’s step up to the bar before he comes back. So open your special drawer, fetch that secret stash of booze you’ve got hidden away and come see what will be in store for us moviegoers in the coming months!

I have FOUR (and an “extra sip”) new trailers for you to sample from our Thursday Trailer Tap!

Assassination Nation

This is a thousand percent a true story about how the quiet, all-American town of Salem, absolutely lost its mind.
