There seems to be a feeling that this does not look like a good movie.
There are some subtle signals it’s sending out that this might be Adam’s Sandler’s unexplained act of vengeance on the human race. Also, that the people who put together the trailer want to ruin Grieg’s “In the Hall of the Mountain King” for everybody.
It’s amazing that after all the deserved scorn heaped on the announcements in bad comedy trailers – the same rhythms, the same tone of voice – bad comedy trailers still look and sound the same as they did in 2002 when South Park did the “Rob Schneider trailers” bit. I don’t know if it works, or if the people who make these trailers are just signaling their contempt for the material. You can’t blame them.
