Review: (#1) Elements of this design are fascinating, though there’s a lot of wasted space here that makes for a slightly weaker concept. (#2) Another design that has a lot of wasted space, though this one gives a lot more details that might appeal to audiences at large.
Trailer Rating: C+ / C

Review: (#1) A lambasting satire of modern poverty politics gets a lot of great actors together, but never feels like the kind of movie that will generate more than passing interest from those who were entertained and engaged by The Informant!
(#2) An uneven musical score, a meandering edit, and a lack of compelling performances dominate this trailer in a way that makes it look like folly.
With a cast like this, it’s not impossible to see the film as an Oscar player; however, the satire pedigree of The Informant! doesn’t give a lot of hope for anything besides acting considerations.
