Review: This design doesn’t give much information as to the kind of film it is going to be, which makes it difficult to use as a sales tool. That said, it’s well structured and balanced.

Trailer Rating: C / C+

Review: (#1) Starting things off with a confusing trailer and expecting audiences to pick up on the clues you’re laying down doesn’t work terribly well as the trailer’s clues are unappealing and slow to resolve.

(#2) The second trailer gives a much better idea of the setting of the film, which was sorely lacking in the first design, but that setting doesn’t have as much going for it as the producers would like, making for a rather confusing, genre-blending film.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
