Cheat death with the first trailer for Final Destination 5

May. 9, 2011by: Mike Sampson

I don't know that I needed or necessarily wanted another FINAL DESTINATION movie after the fourth and supposedly final film, but I also know that I'm a giant sucker for a new FINAL DESTINATION movie. It's one of the very few horror franchises that still seems to be having fun this far in and not getting bogged down with mythology or taking itself too serious.

Since they've gone ahead and made FINAL DESTINATION 5, I'll be one of the people in theaters checking it out especially since I cringed at least three times during this new trailer (at least once was because I saw David Koechner). I worry that Tony Todd might be spending a little too much time setting up the premise for our dopey teens but there seems to be enough carnage to back all that up. Check out the first trailer for the film, which hits theaters in 3D this August, below.

I love the first two Final Destination movies, but that's it. If they continued the storyline the way the Saw franchise did where it was all connected and made one long story, it would be great. Starting witd FD3, it's just been another batch of people cheating death and being knocked off one by one. Not my cup of tea.

Tony Todd

May be a long shot but what if Tony Todd's character IS death and the climax is the "hero" covering him in honey and death by bees? well you see my point.

Not bad! Can u believe the Studio gave the green-light for installments 6 & 7 months ago?! Fun movies for one of two features at Drive-In's.

I like how the trailer doesn't scream Final Destination when you first see it. We also don't get the whole, "We have to get outta here! The bridge is gonna collapse!" scene like we do in the other trailers. It also feels a whole lot different and more modern. Definitely a great teaser trailer. I hope it's actually good.

Looks like it's going back to its original roots of the first two movies so I'm very excited to see this one! Lets hope it can walk the walk as well.

CRINGE-TASTIC!

I've always had a thing for the Final Destination franchise but the 4th one let me down big time. I just didn't like it. I wanted to but I just couldn't manage. HOWEVER, I am willing to forget it even happened and give this installment a chance. It looks leaps and bounds better than the 4th one and it may have some STORY to it! Plus, I cringed like a bitch. I better smoke a bowl before I head into this and let the blood and guts wash over me in 3D.

Whoa

This trailer looks better than I expected. Looks like a good fun movie, the last few weren't so good, but this may bring the franchise into a better light for me at least.

Seeing as the series has been going downhill since the second film, I'd say this one looks like a rental for me.

Glad I already got lasik surgery. Everyone is nervous about something going wrong and being blinded by the procedure.

But having had it, I can't tell you how much is wrong with this scene. They could have done better.

I'll see this though. I haven't really cared for the last 2 movies but I dunno... I'll still watch another. Hope this is better though.

I love this franchise.....

For me it began with Final Destination 1 and The Butterfly Effect which were great. TBE sequels were shoddy and boring, but I liked every FD movie (except the 4th). And it looks like there's more to Tony Todd that meets the eye :D

If you don't see the movie does it come and get you?
HUR HUR urgh..

On another note, this may just be something that only irks me, but I bloody despise when trailers for horror films show the lead ups and scenes of the actual deaths.
It ruins a lot of the suspense and 'I wonder how this will go wrong' atmosphere that, whilst not highly original, plays a lot to the first initial viewing. It's lost if you're giving away most of it in the trailer, I am well aware people will die, you don't

I wish that they would think of an interesting way to kill this franchise! How can any of us really buy the idiotic ways they're killing people. We see it coming and we shake our heads out how pathetic and laughable it is. I think I might just break out with an Faces of Death videos instead.

I'm not a doctor...

i'm not a doctor, but i dont think thos lasers are anywhere near powerful enough to burn a hole through your skin, let alone your head. and what doctor does surgery in the dark and with out assistance?

these deaths are as ridiculous as the Saw movies. the first 2 movies was plausible death scenes and some very suddent. non of this draw out rube goldberg nonsence. Granted, it does look better than 4, but this is a franchise they should just stop.

Really

I barley got through the 1st one and walked out of the 2nd. Have not even thought about seeing any of the others. Why are these things getting made? They are not even "horror" movies, they are just "creative ways for people to die".

BTW. David Koechner is the BOMB! "The difference between ordinary and extraordinary, is that little extra!"
