Dimension Films has released a second movie trailer for Frank Darabont’s big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s The Mist. One of our readers saw a test screening of the film last week. Here is what Sean said about the film:
“It was pretty good, not as good as you would think. The story left a lot of loose ends and the plot was predictable. Now , I didn’t see the finished product, but it was damn near done. the director was there and he said was 98% complete. Some of the CGI needs to be finished and the music refined. Overall it was a good movie, but not as good as I had hoped.”
Another one of my friends also just saw the film at ShowEast, and also reiterated that the movie was pretty good. Although, everyone seems to agree that the special effects still need a lot of work. Even the big giant bug things in the trailer look kinda lame. I’m also still not convinced that Darabont’s experiment with Shield-like documentary style cinematography was the best way to shoot this thing (I’m personally a fan of how Darabont shot the other King adaptations).
Check out the new trailer after the jump.
