Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.  

And quick cuts designed to hide much of this disaster from the audience. Also Alan Rickman’s voice, which actually might work as a weapon.

This 30-second trailer is just incomprehensible. It’s got a soundtrack that I’m pretty sure came from a film about industrial life in the 30s, a semi-steampunk aesthetic best imbued by Sacha Baron Cohen (of course he looks ridiculous), and a miserably kinetic pace that does neither action nor humor any good. I feel like I just experienced a sleep-deprived person’s caffeine crash. You know, where everything seems like a good idea when it’s spit out at a million miles a minute while simultaneously slipping into semi-unconsciousness every few seconds?

I cannot believe this is going to be Alan Rickman’s last film.
