Review: (#1) A scene of destruction does a great deal to sell a film like this even if the broken glass aesthetic doesn’t work very well. (#2) The foreground is the key to understanding the poster design, as it’s a scene from the film. Unfortunately, the backdrop doesn’t do enough to entice the audience. (#3) Giving the audience a cast to look at might humanize the film, but constructing the poster this shabbily certainly doesn’t help. (#4) Another setting of destruction is interesting, but the family trapped at the heart of the design doesn’t feel entirely fitting.

Trailer Rating: B

Review: Like an old fashioned disaster flick, this trailer does a fine job setting up the peril, but more importantly the effects.
