Re: Cool Trailers

This looks like heavily similar territory to Peter Watts and I am fucking here for it.

Re: Cool Trailers

Interesting.

I'm pretty sure this'll end up being one of those movies that drives me nuts — but, who knows.

(Meanwhile, Cloe: "This looks fucking awesome.")

Re: Cool Trailers

I'm still not convinced that movie's actually happening and a teaser made before they've started actual principal photography has an air of desperation to it that is not reassuring at all.

If it's not about musicals, I probably don't know what I'm talking about.

Re: Cool Trailers

This is not a cool trailer, but this thread is the best fit for it and there's no "Utterly Bewildering Nightmare Trailers" thread, so.

Good LORD.  That is some nightmare fuel.

Re: Cool Trailers

The best part of this is that we're probably the bit of the multiverse that got the "good" version of this movie, because there is absolutely no way to make a live action version of Cats that is anything other than abjectly horrifying. The only reason the Broadway version works is that it's on stage... and even then, it only barely manages to squeak by most of the time.

I didn't think it could get any worse, then James Corden showed up...

Re: Cool Trailers

The funny thing is I would watch the SHIT out of a movie with this version of Idris Elba and Ian Mckellan as Tabaxi assassins or something (Hell, just remake Blade... but Tabaxi). Their like, one shot each, is the best thing in this trailer.

Edit: Okay... the theatre nerd in me is contractually obligated to admit that the ballet/dance sequences have and will forever be the one and only best thing about Cats... because a bunch of very attractive people being sexy slinky cat people doing gorgeous dance work? Yeah... that's basically a pretty easy pass on being good.

Re: Cool Trailers

As someone who's never seen a Top Gun and only vaguely knows what it's about.... this honestly looked pretty good. It's straight up Jet porn and Tom Cruise being his charming Tom Cruise-y self, sure... but I'm not exactly opposed to that for another 2 hours.

Re: Cool Trailers

Yeah I'm sorry, no trailer will make me forget the Cats trailer for a while.

Put some dark ambient music under it, and you got yourself a body horror movie about the dangers of nuclear waste on the local cat population .

Re: Cool Trailers

I made sure not to watch Cats. I've watched Top Gun at least three times already. Thank you, Tom Cruise, for insisting so much of the jet stuff was done practically. That was 100% a practical carrier launch; someone said probably from an F/A-18B, which is a two-seat model.

EDIT: The only thing that bothers me is "... the only pilot to shoot down three enemy planes in the last 40 years..." isn't a line that an Admiral would say. That's 100% a studio exec saying "our audience won't know what we mean if we say 'the only ace in the last 40 years,' so make it more obvious."

EDIT EDIT: I'm really curious, though, to see why when he's talking to Ed Harris, Tom Cruise is wearing a high-altitude suit. It shows up once more in a cockpit, but I can't ID the jet he's in.
