i honestly don’t think that they should have went the teaser trailer route with Duncan Jones’ upcoming Warcraft: The Beginning.
If you’re Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Captain America: Civil War, or Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, you can have a teaser trailer.
When you’re talking about a property that most people aren’t even aware of, then not so much.
And seriously, if you replaced scenes in the teaser with images from any of the Lord of the Rings movies, would anyone honestly notice any difference?
Sadly, i’d have to say No.
Supposedly Universal–Legendary’s production partner–wasn’t too enthused about the movie, and while I have no idea why that is, after such a relatively bland teaser, I’d be a mite concerned too.
The trailer for Spike Lee’s Chi-Raq also dropped today, and also happens to be much more interesting.
