New trailers offer a better look at what we can anticipate from two movies that are expected to be big commercial hits this summer. Unfortunately, one of them still hasn’t necessarily convinced me that it’ll be worth the sort of ticket prices that theaters demand as of late. A matinee might be more like it.
Although much better than the teaser released a few months back, this trailer is only a very slight step up and still isn’t doing it for me. I’m not quite sure why, but I don’t have that same level of excitement or interest in this as the other comic-book adaptations also hitting theaters this summer. I must say, however, the last fifteen seconds look pretty damn spectacular. I can only imagine what that will look like in 3D. Unfortunately, it’s not enough to win me over yet, especially seeing as the trailer feels like a crossbreed of ‘Transformers 2’, ‘Inception’ and ‘The Dark Knight’.
Like the one above, I think this preview is an improvement over its teaser. We not only get more of the basic plotline, but also see more of the film’s visual design. For the devoted ‘Alien’ fans like myself, we get glimpses of what promise to be some of the original conceptual ideas that Ridley Scott wanted in the 1979 sci-fi classic, but was denied by producers due to budget limitations. Needless to say, I’m excited for this movie even though the two-and-a-half minute trailer doesn’t totally whet my appetite.
