Poster Rating: B

Review: It’s quite interesting how posters are conveying the same impression of trailers lately. This poster does a good job of invoking the darkness of the film, while forcing you to question if it’s a bit to childish to appeal to adults.

Trailer Rating: B

Review: While the plot seems a bit too similar in parts to Pan’s Labyrinth, it’s clear the film is a distinct and interesting vision of a fantasy world of powerful magic bestowed only to a minimal few. The movie looks like it’s going to be more about the power of family than about the power of evil, but we’ll have to wait and see how it turns out.

Oscar Prospects:

With the massive numbers of fantasy films in the marketplace for this year’s Oscar consideration, this one seems too modern to pull the Academy’s attention away from other projects.
