From IMDb: “From the bitter quest of the Queen of Longtrellis, to two mysterious sisters who provoke the passion of a king, to the King of Highhills obsessed with a giant Flea, these tales are inspired by the fairytales by Giambattista Basile.”

Poster Rating: B / B- / C+ / C / B

Review: (#1) A visually compelling design with plenty of eye-catching elements to draw the viewer’s attention. It’s not stylistically perfect, but is certainly interesting. (#2) Perhaps this will appeal to the male demographic that the film isn’t really targeted at, but is that really the intent?

(#3) If you’re familiar with fairy tales, this might conjure up some memories, but overall, there’s nothing particularly important about this design. (#4) Cobbled together with no apparent desire to eliminate the obvious seems to the construction. (#5) It’s a fascinating piece of art, but does it have enough to do with the film? Without watching it, I can’t say for sure.

Trailer Rating: B-

Review: This trailer is so all over the place that you can’t tell if it’s intending to deconstruct fairy tales, create new ones or blend them all together. That kind of confusion doesn’t endear the audience to it.
