Captive State – Official Teaser Trailer #2

The trailers prior to Teaser Trailer #2 for Focus Features’ upcoming Captive State were perhaps too clever for their own good.  Reason being, when I first saw the first teaser I assumed that it dealt with a Purge-type situation, which I lost interest in pretty quickly because…the Purge.

Alita: Battle Angel – Final Trailer
