From IMDb: “A woman who raised herself in the marshes of the deep South becomes a suspect in the murder of a man she was once involved with.”

Poster Rating: C+ / C- / C-

Review: (#1) It’s an interesting upper design, but the lower two-thirds aren’t very artistic. (#2) An inverse in balance from the prior design, but without the intriguing detail makes for a rather lifeless effect. (#3) Making the primary figure faded without adding something of important doesn’t make an good design.

Trailer Rating: B- / B-

Review: (#1) This trailer does a fine job setting up the situation around which the narrative is woven, but struggles to find something to lock onto that makes it more than barely compelling.

(#2) Although it feels different from its predecessor, they are similar enough to make them difficult to separate. The film still seems more interesting than it should, which could benefit its box office potential.

Oscar Prospects:

That they advertised an original song by Taylor Swift suggests they are going to push it hard regardless of the quality of the film.
