The Trailer Has to Be Hitched Properly
It's a shame, because someone worked hard on that trailer. SomeONE? Many people. Besides the trailer, the movie itself of course But unfortunately I just didn't like the packaging and as such, I won't be seeing the movie. And it probably will turn out to be hailed as top notch.
If it does turn out to be a great film, then the flip side of this particular flick is Superman Returns. I'm not going to get into it beyond saying I loathed the movie. However, I had been uber-excited to see it. Hats off to anyone involved with the trailer for that film. They managed to make it look amazing by cramming all the best bits into a well-paced and well-edited piece of comic book glory. Excitement oozes from it and I watched it several times in a row. And yet I will always regret not leaving the theater.
All this being said, it just goes to show once again that it really does matter how a story is presented/packaged. A lesson I re-learned not so very long ago with Hoodwinked.
