Review: (#1) A somewhat childish rendition of something you might see advertising a Wes Anderson film. The details aren’t that exciting, but it’s sufficient. (#2) When your concept doesn’t translate well to the audience, you get a head-scratching design like this one. (#3) An interesting, hand-drawn design that conjures memories of old school Hollywood’s most interesting designs.

(#4) This is also faintly reminiscent of Wes Anderson, but completely misses the point of those kinds of designs. (#5) A more naturalistic design doesn’t give the audience any compelling interest. (#6) Dull, strange and won’t drive curiosity in the least.

Trailer Rating: B

Review: There are some fairly daffy elements to this trailer, which plays into its status as a comedy. There are some questionable choices in places, but overall, it looks like it could be a modestly entertaining diversion.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
