Looks promising...

  1. Wow, nice. Love the use of Peter Gabriel's cover of Arcade Fire. A surprisingly sensitive trailer. Wouldn't it be wonderful to see this story done well, and given extra layers of meaning...?

  2. Agreed both. However, I wasn't that impressed by the Martian who appeared briefly - he looked very cartoon-like. Oh well, it's early days so the effects are probably still being done. Xx

  3. Oh, and one last thing - it's not a patch on Alan Moore's depiction of Mars in the LoEG2 book, which was awesome in the extreme!

  4. Yes, that was extremely cool. Looks like they're going very traditionalist here, which isn't such a bad thing, but there's definitely room for future adaptations!

  5. Hmm. Let's face it, this film is probably going to be mediocre. Just another cookie cutter hero story from Disnep. It also doesn't look like any of the Frazetta depictions, lol.

  6. Yeah, it's a shame they haven't followed Frazetta's lead.
