I like this trailer, if for no other reason it puts children in peril, which I tend to enjoy in movies.
Let me explain. Most movies treat children as of they were made of glass and if you look at them too long, they spontaneously combust.
And that’s just not true. Children have literally fought in wars and raised families, which isn’t to say that we want those things to be common, but what it does say is that children are people.
Which leads to Little Monsters.
In the trailer there are quite a few children in (potential) peril, and I’m perfectly okay with that.
Lupita Nyong’o appears to be making her name in genre movies lately, from Us and Black Panther and now Little Monsters.
