Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

Amazon’s new superhero show, The Boys, debuts this week and we’ve already seen and heard plenty about it. However, the studio just released a final trailer and it’s basically everything you could want from the show and then some.


We get the whole set up of the plot—based on the comic Garth Ennis and Darick Robertsonintroduce most of the characters, see how it’s all going to work out, and so much more. Basically, if this trailer doesn’t pique your interested, nothing will. Check it out.

While some of the other trailers really focused on kind of the scope of the show, this weaves that in and out with the more personal story. The story of a man who loses the woman he loves in a truly horrific fashion and finds a way to get revenge. And if that revenge just so happens to help keep a lid on a world of evil superheroes, well, all the better.

Starring Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Simon Pegg, Erin Moriarty, Jessie T. Usher, Chace Crawford, and others, The Boys debuts on Amazon Prime July 26.

The comic spread over an interesting period in my life. When I started reading it, close to when the first TPBs were released, I found it funny and fun. After a few years though, it just seemed mean, gross, and sophomoric. I’ll give the show a chance because I have to at least try new comic book adaptations, but my expectations are kind of low. This will be one where if my wife doesn’t instantly like it we’ll move on to other things and I won’t mind leaving it behind.
