elisi: (Choose Love)
So we went to see Black Panther, and since we got there early were subjected to ALLLLL the adverts/trailers. Quite a lot of them, however, were surprisingly good.

Top of the list, this rendition of Favourite Things (trust me, it's worth a listen even if you hate The Sound of Music):

And just for the delightful surprise, this advert which I hadn't come across before:

More importantly, this ad about mental health.

And this one about perseverance:

And finally an older one, but one that will also probably make you cry. Not for a bank or a phone, but for Barnardo's, the UK's largest children's charity:

There were trailers also, let me see what I can remember... A Wrinkle in Time (never read the book, probably should), Pacific Rim Uprising (I didn't have a clue what it was, it looked a bit Transformers), Peter Rabbit (apologies to any fans but it looks awful), Love, Simon (have heard of this and the book it's based on), and probably more. Something about a girl who was allergic to sunlight.
