The Art of the Trailer

I paid ten buck to see X-Men First Class tonight and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great film. However, I would have felt my money well spent before the opening credits after seeing the trailer for David Fincher’s adaptation of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Pulse pounding, mesmerizing, astonishinly good. Featuring an incredible cover of my favorite Zeppelin tune, Immigrant Song, done by Trent Reznor and Karen O. It draws you toward the screen more than the powerful hands of Magneto over could.

Do yourself a favor and go experience both in a darkened theatre. If you can’t, turn off all your lights, put on some headphones with the volume cranked up and watch it here. It’s worth a goddamned look, believe me.

There is an art to the Trailer. Some folks are very good at it. Sometimes, often, a well done trailer might be even better than the film it’s selling. I’m thinking that might be the case with Green Lantern. It was almost the case with Watchmen, which featured, up to now, the greatest trailer I’d ever seen.

Fucking blown out of the water tonight, folks.
