It's an excellent example of hollywood military propaganda in the 1980s, so it makes sense that they're doing a sequel now of all times, but yeah I never got past the volleyballing scene for... reasons... Blush

The soundtrack? It's probably the soundtrack.

Weirdly I've always thought this Andrew W.K. song would make a great Top Gun soundtrack song for some reason. It's got a similar piano/guitar feel:

 Assuming the studio is looking for this Tom Hooper flick to match/exceed the $442m B.O. take of his Les Misérables, probably, yeah. Common folk like expensive-looking movies, and, say what you like about it, this looks expensive, and novel. It's certainly not for me, but I'd imagine the studio is pleased even with the breast-beating online reaction: people are talking, and awareness is being raised. From a business perspective, I wouldn't bet against this one at all. As for the effects, they look perfectly fine enough for most. I've heard people talk about the Live Aid sequence of Bohemian Rhapsody as though it was a special effects catastrophe, but it looked good to me in the theater.

I thought the opposite. Wonky CGI Cats dancing in a confined looking real set looks cheap to me and the reverse of how it should be done IMO. Surely, real people dancing in a vast CG enhanced city would've been the way to make this thing look expensive. Personally I think this would've been more dynamic by doing it with no sets. The performers running around at night in the alleys of a gritty, grimy real city (London) mixing dancing with Parkour. It's a long time since I saw it in the West End but that's the feel I got from it. The set was a dirty junkyard:

Not a colourful neon thing.

I still might give this a chance because I love the musical.

That's hyperbole for yer, the crowd didn't look 100% but it was good enough and I was watching Freddie anyway.

^Aye, I can't help but look at that shot of the cats in Trafalgar Square at the end of the trailer and think "Wow.... that looks fake as shit"

I wish they'd either gone with live-action/makeup with CG enhancements or just a flat-out animated movie. This weird mishmash of the two has dropped it right into the crevice of the uncanny valley.

^ Yes! That looks like everything I was hoping for when I first read about the premise. Great trailer too "From visionistical Director Taika Waititi" Big Grin .

p.s. slekyr you don't need a new post for every new trailer. One would've done. Thanks for posting them though.
