Trailer Watch is a first reaction viewing of the featured trailer (by me) where I give some light commentary and opinions on it. Trailers are a big deal, they are the first real impression a movie has on people and can have a huge impact on its success or failure which is why it is important for a studio to cut together the best possible trailer they can. While I do have some expectations or even some insight into many of the film trailers presented here, please take it all with a grain of salt and make your own opinion from what is shown (that is why I insist you see the trailer first each time). Most of all though, kick back and see if you agree with my off the cuff reactions. Watch the trailer and listen to my reaction after the break.
The 2005 Fantastic Four movie and it's 2007 follow up were the type of superhero movies we used to have to live with. Uninspired and mediocre at best, they are the perfect example of why Marvel's fresh approach to their properties a couple years later was such a sigh of relief for comic book (and film) fans. Now 20th Century Fox is trying to right their past mistakes (just like they tried with the X-Men franchise) and have put together a film that judging from this first look seems to be taking the material a whole lot more serious. However it remains to be seen if that is the correct approach for this particular superhero family of four. Check out my reaction to the trailer now.
