Blockers Trailer 2

Kay Cannon‘s Blockers (2018) movie trailer 2 stars John CenaKathryn Newton, Ike Barinholtz, Leslie Mann, Graham Phillips, Ramona Young, Miles Robbins, Colton Dunn, Geraldine Viswanathan, Sarayu Blue, Jake Picking, Gideon Adlon, Rhoda Griffis, Jimmy Bellinger, and Emalie Noel.

Blockers plot summary from Imdb:

Three parents try to stop their daughters from having sex on Prom night.

As far as selling its premise goes, the second promo for Blockers doesn’t have to try very hard. The idea of parents learning that their child intends to have sex at prom and subsequently trying to stop them is one rife with humorous potential, and leaves one wondering why it hasn’t been mined for comedy as much as you’d think it would have.

However, it is the execution where I start to have doubts. Namely, the casting of John Cena as the girl’s father. Cena isn’t a bad actor per se, but I have yet to see him in anything that indicates that he can carry a film on his own, much less a comedy. One can’t help but wonder why the producers decided that they were okay with him, as the film’s most bankable name, being the face of it.

Not only that, but a lot of the gags in the trailer fall flat or don’t go as far as they could, such as the exchange of euphemisms between a boy and girl at the prom.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
