Review: (#1) Aliens beaming up our protagonists is an interesting representation of the film’s premise, though perhaps a bit inaccurate. (#2) Less accurate than the predecessor, but also lacking in the interesting details that made it something to observe.
(#3) There are a lot of details here, though they are spread out across the design, which gives a bit too much irregular spacing to the design.
(#4) Lots of white space and weird poses and expressions. It’s just not terribly exciting. (#5) This attempt to create a Christmas theme doesn’t quite work since it makes no reference to the holiday.
Trailer Rating: B / B-

Review: (#1) If you’re a fan of Shaun the sheep, this should immediately entice you. Fans of Aardman animation will see some elements that are interesting, but also some that isn’t.
(#2) The humor feels strangely dialed back in this second trailer, but the overall thrust of the film and the magic of Aardman animation is still on full display.
It may end up as a Best Animated Feature nominee, but there’s a lot of potential competition this year that might keep it out of the running.
