Review: (#1) The colors work, but the staid character positions and insets are utterly unoriginal. (#2) Take the prior design, re-do the insets to something more interesting, but eliminate all the unique colors and keep everything else the same and you have an uninspired design.

Trailer Rating: C

Review: The first thing you should do when you come up with an idea that has a white man at the center of the Civil Rights movement is decide if it’s a story that really has to be told. This trailer does nothing to sell that idea to the viewer, making it feel like a shoddy effort.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
