Sometimes trailers flash by our eyes so fast, it’s hard to describe what you see. That’s especially the case when you see several never before seen trailers back to back. A /Film reader was at the Russian International Film Market this week and experienced just that as Paramount reportedly showed several never-before-seen trailers, many of which are rumored to be released very soon. They showed J.J. Abrams’ Super 8 and Joe Johnston’s Captain America: The First Avenger, as well as new ones of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Kung Fu Panda 2 and, most surprisingly, a tease for Brad Bird’s still in production Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol. Read one reader’s impressions of all these trailers after the jump.
Big thanks to /Film reader Konstantin from TheMovie.ru for sending in this info. Here’s what he had to say:
As everyone may guess, it doesn’t give any answers … but it makes us want answers even more. Doesn’t show too much surprising stuff. It’s still all about kids that are facing an “unknown incredible creature” (we don’t see it) that can control everything and do whatever it wants. Everything blows up, everything flies, the “creature” really has amazing abilities to change everything it has around itself….
Captain America: The First Avenger:
It partly seems to be a lot like Indiana Jones…. Everything seems to be very natural and real. Can’t remember any usage of CGI. Amazing decorations, costumes. And the best thing about this film, it looks like the best part of its production is its script. A serious fantastic-military detective thriller….
Transformers: Dark of the Moon:
The CGI looks even better than the two first films [put] together. There are some really innovative visual decisions and the 3D has an amazing quality. There was one kinda big spot with Sam and his new blond girlfriend that helps him get a job. Since everyone cares about her being in this film, from this spot I can tell that she [demands] much of the attention. It feels so [forced] when the camera catches her to show everyone her sexiness when it’s not really needed. Well, yes, she looks sexy, and from that spot she didn’t [show] any emotion on her face, [either].
Kung Fu Panda 2:
I’m not fan boy of this Panda story, but animation itself looks really great. Everything has amazing speed, and the scale is simply huge in every way. Storyline of the sequel is gonna be greater than the first one on every [level].
Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol:
It’s kind of hard to say why it was so impressive, but it was. And I’ve talked to bunch of people, and everyone [agrees] that it was trailer of the day. It works so hard, especially when the trailer comes to its ending, [where] we see Tom Cruise hanging down on the world’s biggest building in Dubai. It really blew mind. Maybe the reason for its success is in the fact that we haven’t see something like that for a long time…a large scale spy thriller going all around the world.
Chances are we’ll be seeing these trailers very soon. Which are you most excited for?
