The Hurricane Heist Trailer Blew Up the Internet Over the Weekend. This is CRAZY.

“It pretty much looks like Ocean’s 11 meets Twister meets od’ing on cocaine.”

That was a quote in the MAXIM article about the trailer for The Hurricane Heist, and yeah, that pretty much sums up how people are reacting to it.

A few days ago I posted the trailer and wrote a brief word about how surreal it all was.

As if it weren’t surreal enough to simply see a trailer for The Hurricane Heist, now I’m watching how in only the first few days the entire Internet has somehow collectively lost their minds over it. Good or bad, happy or angry, positive or negative (oh trust me, there’s a lot of negative, haha), people DEFINITELY have an opinion on this first look of our insane opus.

It all started as an exclusive on Collider:

But man oh man OH MAN did it spread… Soon after almost every other geek/movie website picked it up. It suddenly appeared on the front page of IMDB. It got splashed all over YouTube. And my personal favorites are the slew of REACTION VIDEOS that people put up on YouTube giving their first impressions of the TRAILER. Haha, these are so incredible. The general concensus seems to be something like this:

“This is utterly ridiculous! What the hell am I watching?”
“…I’m so there.”

“This movie looks completely absurd! Who comes up with this garbage?”
“…I have to see it.”

“This looks so asinine! Who in their right mind would go see this?”
“…I’ll be there opening weekend.”

“What is this shit? Hard Rain meets Sharknado? I’m losing brain cells watching this.”
“…Must see it in a crowded theater.”

Honestly, I don’t care if you like it or hate it. While there seems to be a lot of like, there’s also a LOT of hate. Hey, fine by me. As long as you’re not indifferent. If you’re going to see it in order to enjoy yourself, I guarantee you will have a blast. If you’re going to hate-watch it in order to make fun of every single frame, I also guarantee you’ll have a blast.

Either way, just go see it.

Thank you Internet. All this initial fervent reaction from our very first trailer is putting whipped cream on top of the already-mind-boggling sundae building in my brain.

Here is a partial rundown of a few of the websites, followed by some YouTube reaction videos. Trust me when I say I’m not only posting the positive reactions. I’m posting the “I’m skipping this garbage” links as well. They’re almost more fun! Enjoy a sampling of my world.


Here’s a few of the reaction videos to the trailer. These are pretty damn funny.


Trust me when I say this is WEIRD AS SHIT for me. Yet, I admit I’m enjoying the hell out of the bonkers reaction the trailer is getting. Let’s hope everyone is this passionate about it when it comes out on March 9!

We’ll just have to wait and see…

And hey, if you want, feel free to let me know your thoughts on the trailer. I’m curious to hear from all opinions.
