Review: (#1) A kaleidoscopic design that hurts the eyes more than it reminds of the 1980s. (#2-#5) The colors to these character posters are garish and distracting. They are well produced, but not interesting.

(#6) These weird psychedelic color schemes aren’t visually pleasing and none of them have much in the way of detail. (#7) This may be one of the least objectionable of the designs, but there’s just not enough here worth recommending. (#8) A similar color scheme to the prior, but this art design is a lot more in tune with what the ’80s were than anything previously shown. (#9) Back to the same old same-old. Nothing exciting to see here.

(#10-#14) There’s little different or interesting in these four distinctive designs that carry over the aesthetic of prior interactions, but without any overall success. (#15-#18) These character posters are each unique, but follow the theme of prior designs which makes them nothing new. (#15) And finally, we have yet another aesthetically similar design with nothing more to recommend with it.

(#20-#22) Another batch of the same-ol same-ol. New designs weren’t found, just derivations on the originals.

Trailer Rating: B / C+ / C+

SEE ALL TRAILERS BELOW
Review: (#1) If you were already predisposed to the film, then nothing in this trailer will entice you any further; however, getting a brief glimpse into the narrative surrounding the film might help fence-sitters. Some of the dialogue and scenes in the trailer; however, look a bit cheap and formulaic.

(#2) We get quite a few more details about the film, but they are surrounded by cuts and dialogue that tries to obfuscate what’s going on, which makes the whole trailer modestly confusing and not as enticing as it should be.

(#3) Apart from the music, this trailer doesn’t excel at much of anything. No story progression, limited excitement. It’s as if the trailer designers couldn’t do better than their prior efforts, so they didn’t bother trying.

Oscar Prospects:

The first film didn’t earn any Oscar nominations, so I suspect the sequel will have the same issues.
