Review: (#1-#3) These three designs all delightfully play off of 1960’s design techniques, which help establish the film’s setting effectively. They each have visual benefits, but #3 goes to great lengths to create a background that isn’t utterly sterile and is ultimately the slightly better overall design.

Trailer Rating: C- / D

Review: (#1 & #2) Red band trailers that don’t distinguish themselves effectively from their green band variants are a waste of space. Other than a couple of choice words in the red band trailer, it doesn’t convey a distinctive view of the film, which is ultimately distracting. The film, based on an easily disproven conspiracy theory, looks like warmed over slapstick comedy without any substance or necessity.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
