I can’t tell you the last year I saw this many absolutely EXCELLENT and EXCITING movie trailers, but 2023 really is shouting it to the rooftops that… CINEMA is back.
Now these movies may end up being masterpieces or awful, time will tell. But judging just on the trailers…. THEY ARE LOOKING PROMISING.
THE CREATOR (2023) IS TODAY’S TRAILER that haS me really HYPED for the FILMS IN 2023:
I don’t love this poster, it is picturesque enough but doesn’t really give a sense of the movie. However the trailer on the other hand does foretell a stunning future landscape of man and machine, and the calamity that waits at the heart of that meeting. This is a well worn cautionary ground, as old as Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN, but here with enough of a visionary twist to make me very excited.
And the movie trailer is ever more timely and potentially prophetic, especially with Elon Musk going full mad scientist (and I say that being a shareholder and a fan of much that Musk has done, but in regards to AI and these humanoid robots… it is potentially the proverbial road to hell, paved with good intentions) saying he wants to produce more robots than people (he’s talking 10 billion robots, multiple robots per household).
Somehow quietly we are on that dangerous ground that 19th and 20th century writers speculated on. We are on that cautionary road, to that much warned of destination, and the time to get off that road, choose another, saner path… is quickly running out.
The trailer makes me think on all these things, that marks it as a very good to great trailer. Trailer Grade; B+.
