Review: (#1) As a teaser poster, this design works fairly well, drawing the eye and commanding attention. What it doesn’t quite command is respect.

(#2) A lifeless backdrop and unique color don’t make this a very compelling design.

Trailer Rating: B+ / B

SEE ALL TRAILERS BELOW
Review: (#1) The audience is sufficiently teased. Jennifer Hudson belts out Aretha’s signature tune, which should be enough to encourage audiences to give a fuller trailer some consideration.

(#2) Taking the teaser elements and adding a bit of the film’s imagery does embellish the film a bit, but it also makes that teaser feel a bit too oppressive.

Oscar Prospects:

The August release is worrisome, but Jennifer Hudson might be a contender for Best Actress should the film be any good.
