Review: (#1) Overly simple and not particularly compelling visually, there are some slightly subtle elements that give it more definition than its successor. (#2) There’s little about this design that works, make that nothing. It’s poorly laid out, lacks visual depth and the look on McConaughey’s face is awful.

(#3) A commonplace design is only slightly benefited by a nice use of colors for the individual sections. (#4) The forest is symbolic, sure, but does that mean it has to be the sole design element? (#5) Nice, but uninteresting differing color block give the poster its only visual flair.

Trailer Rating: C+

SEE ALL TRAILERS BELOW
Review: The film looks to be a fairly commonplace relationship drama about the woman behind the successful man and her impending tragedy. The trailer does little to convince us that we haven’t already seen the film.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
