Review: (#1 & #3) These two designs, although in different languages and slightly different, are both simplistic, forced and generally unappealing. (#2) Less close-up than the other two, it doesn’t add anything interesting to the mix and really feels like a cheap way to throw the film out there without much support.

Trailer Rating: B / C

SEE ALL TRAILERS BELOW
Review: (#1) The trailer has serious issues. It goes too far in setting up the film’s storyline. One could be led to believe that they’ve seen the entire thing based solely on this trailer, which could depress turnout.

(#2) Not a lot has changed here and that’s probably not a good thing. A film sells on its ability to create interest in the audience and while there’s some small amount of adrenaline to be experienced here, it’s simplistic and formulaic, which won’t bring people to the cinema.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
