First of all, just this minute and a half alone points to a better looking film then what Zemeckis would vomit up. Hell, it’s not even apparent that the film is CGI until half way in. You can’t really deny that the film doesn’t look good and polished (but this is Spielberg we are talking about, so that should just be excepted). However, the trailer mechanics themselves kind of suck. This feels less like a trailer meant to boost public awareness and more like an ad reel you would show a movie theater chain to convince them to see your movie. It’s rushed, you don’t get a lot of the story, and there’s money shots abound. The film looks promising and has a great crew behind it; I just hope it will be able to deliver.
