All of this is pretty much just bog standard blockbuster movie trailer making in 2020. I agree that it's extremely formulaic now, but that's really a complaint about the genre of blockbuster movie trailers rather than the movie in question.Plinky, oppressive reimnagining of a classic rock song? Check.
"War...is coming" or some equivalent said in a raspy voice? Check.
The wubby Inception sound-effect shoehorned into some dramatic moment? Oh yeah.
Yeah, Villeneuve is a fantastic director, the cinematography looks gorgeous, and iirc it's a 2-film adaptation which means it won't be rushed and stilted like the previous movie.At this point in his career Villeneuve has more than earned the benefit of the doubt, regardless of what the marketing department gets up to
By the director of Arrival and Blade Runner 2049, and produced by the studios that gave us some of the higher-quality blockbusters of the last decade, including a lot of Christopher Nolan's output.I am ready for classic sci-fi adapted by the studio that brought us Batman v Superman
It seems like "crusade" is being used rather than "jihad" in the trailer. Personally I think that type of thing fine for an adapatation, as long as they are keeping future syncretic religions like Zensunni that make up so much of the worldbuilding. (The books use both terms so maybe this is not significant beyond avoiding unnecessary controversy for a trailer.....)I'm curious what reception will be in today's political climate for a movie based on a book that had some obvious Muslim names and concepts in it. I really hope the movie doesn't shy away from that.
