if fanboys needed further reason to flock into the cinemas
this week in support of Pixar’s superhero opus The
Incredibles, they now have two more to add to the list.
Wars Episode III:
Revenge of the Sith
up is the teaser trailer for the third installment of Lucas’
prequel trilogy entitled Revenge of the Sith, despite
the risk of stoking the ire of Star Wars fanatics
sprawling the internet. Apparently the concept of a “teaser”
is completely lost on Lucas and company because this effort
hardly teases so much as it confuses.
there are scenes that look fantastic, but they are cut together
so frenetically that it would seem that the team behind
the trailer decided to ditch the “less is more”
in favor of a “throw everything at them and confuse
the hell out of them” strategy.
only is it the sloppiest trailer cut in recent history,
it does nothing to peak interest in this third installment.
It would seem that Lucas is catering specifically to the
folks out there who salivate anxiously for these teasers,
then freeze every frame and analyze the contents to death
months before the film ever hits the theaters.
freeze frame analysis is a fun hobby, but it’s best
when you can unearth treats from an already cogent trailer.
Compiling information from a confusing onslaught of jarring
sequences does little to entice, and it makes for a crappy
know that ROTS will mark the return of Darth Vader,
so how hard would it actually be to knock one out of the
park here? They needed to produce a trailer that successfully
makes us sit up in our seats, take note, and anxiously await
his return, but apparently it’s tougher than one might
thought it would be fun to throw this in. Everyone knows
that part of the joy in seeing a new Pixar flick is that
we are usually treated to a snazzy new Pixar short. It’s
become their trademark (well, that and quality films) and
this year’s “Boundin’” is yet another
in a long line of laugh inducing comedy.
will be treated to another morsel with The Incredibles,
and that comes in the form of a sneak peak at Pixar CEO
John Lasseter’s pet project, Cars. It won’t
be out until this time next year, but let me tell you, doubts
about this project are completely null and void.
an intriguing mixture of cartoon imagery with the usual
stunning CG that Pixar is well known for. It’s easy
to place faith in Pixar after they’ve delivered hit
after hit for so many years. It wasn’t long ago that
an ugly suggestion surfaced that a bomb was in sight for
the Emeryville-based company.
this was all pre-Nemo and that tune certainly changed
quickly. The problem is, this discussion leapfrogged over
The Incredibles and wound up smack dab on Lasseter’s
lap. That’s right, Cars was to be the big
question mark looming over their heads, and although not
much is known about the plot this teaser is more than enough
to quell the rumors.
