Review: (#1 & #2) You may know his name, but that doesn’t make these posters interesting in the least. Of course, I don’t think anyone’s interested in selling these as art pieces. The second is only a slight improvement.
(#3) Perhaps not as richly detailed as it needs to be, it’s an improvement over the prior designs. I guess spy thrillers don’t require creativity in their advertising. (#4) The same look, but powered by explosions of indeterminate necessity. (#5) Now we have all women stripped from the posters. The third design tried to add a potential romantic interest, but even that seems to minimal considering she’s not even the cohort he’s most frequently engaged with in the film trailer.

Review: If you’re a fan of the franchise and have watched the events of the Matt Damon-starring editions, then there’s something of a rooting interest in this trailer.
Seldom does this franchise receive Oscar nominations, so I wouldn’t put too much faith in it getting nominated.
