From IMDb: “A rescue mission is assembled in Thailand where a group of young boys and their soccer coach are trapped in a system of underground caves that are flooding.”

Poster Rating: C+ / C

Review: (#1) Simple, yet evocative. The design could have been better styled with the wording feeling more out of place than fitting.

(#2) Better than its predecessor at telling the film’s story, this poster ends up also being less symbolic and less interesting as a result.

Trailer Rating: C

Review: Exactly who the audience for this film is isn’t given away by the trailer. It’s a dull, point-by-point narrative recitation of dramatic real world events with a flare of Hollywood tension. It doesn’t work.

Oscar Prospects:

With Ron Howard, you never know. His films usually compete, but to what extent depends on critics reception. Not since A Beautiful Mind has he had a bona fide Oscar contender in numerous categories and this could be the kind of film to bring him back.
