Review: (#1) An indistinct poster design that has some interesting color usage, but remains steadfastly forgettable. (#2) A humorous design that doesn’t quite fit into the seriousness of the film’s subject, at least according to the trailer. (#3) The broken record isn’t precisely new, but how it’s used is modestly effective even if the entire design seems a bit barren.

(#4) A psychedelic design that lacks empathy, creativity or genuine excitement. (#5) The Union Jack in the background doesn’t add much to the design and neither, really, does the rest of the poster.

Trailer Rating: C+

SEE ALL TRAILERS BELOW
Review: The trailer seems to jump around so much that focusing on its subject is difficult and knowing precisely what’s going on is almost impossible. That level of confusing won’t help the film reach an audience.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
