Review: (#1) All that matters is that it remind everyone of the 1988 box office hit and this certainly does that.
(#2) The cream background with the red petals is a poor choice, but the central image basing itself on the concept of a portrait along with plenty of interesting details makes for a visually striking design.
Trailer Rating: C+ / B

Review: (#1) The constant references to Arsenio and Eddie Murphy in other roles feels a bit cheap since we already know the pair are in the film and that they play other characters. As for the overall impact of the trailer, it does a satisfying job setting elements of the premise in place so that the audience can become excited about seeing it.
(#2) Giving the audience a much better understanding of the film’s premise, they get a look at the visually resplendent designs that went into the film, but not quite the ultimate purpose of the film other than to blend the original film with something like Black Panther.
