Review: (#1) It’s hard to find much positive about this design, the lightning design being about the only thing. (#2) This two panel poster is dull, uninteresting, and forced. (#3) Big lettering with a bland foreground doesn’t make things interesting. (#4) If you can’t dull the viewer with plain design details, might as well go with overused ones. red-and-black with white lettering is passé. (#5-#8) These are blocky in all the standard ways as well as new ones, with the box-like nature of the red and white lettering. A main poster and character posters in the same style is appalling.

Trailer Rating: C+

Review: Once you figure out what this movie may partly be about, the trailer goes out of its way to keep you from having a great deal of concern for the characters, which is an impediment to the box office success of a film like this.
