Review: (#1) There’s not a lot here except a supposedly terrified Angelina Jolie and a crying child. The red and yellow lighting doesn’t sufficiently tell the audience what’s going on. (#2) If you want to give the audience an idea of what they are going to see, this is the design you want to put forth. The background/midground/foreground details set the place and narrative while the character images help create a sense of humanity.
Trailer Rating: C+

Review: A surprisingly fresh concept is presented in a stale trailer package that has to hit all of the expected notes making the whole film feel like a series of checked boxes rather than a convincing narrative.
It’s not the kind of film Academy voters typically embrace, but Angelina Jolie could be a left-field contender for Best Actress and films that feature fires this massive tend to compete in the Best Sound category, though competition this year will surely be fierce between blockbusters.
