Review: (#1) There is a little bit of interest here, namely the colorful and stickered design of the valise. However, the lackluster backdrop and absence of notable action make it less than spectacular. (#2) Some of the good elements from the prior design with an even more vacant backdrop and only a minimal uptick in action. (#3) This is an improvement form the second design in several ways, but the swap to a dull golden yellow backdrop doesn’t improve matters at all.

Trailer Rating: B-

Review: There’s a generous energy to the trailer that may engage the audience in ways that will give it a small boost of attendance; however, it feels very familiar and predictable, which might turn away just as many as it would possibly bring in.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
