Oh For the Love Of…Another Movie Trailer! Mortal Engines!

I didn’t think Ocean’s 8 was that big of a release this weekend, but we’re getting a bajillion movie trailers this week! Or maybe they’re all preparing to go in front of The Incredibles 2 next week? Or Jurassic World in a few weeks? I dunno!

But here’s the first full trailer for Mortal Engines!

Man, that sucked!

Way to kill all the excitement engineered from the first teaser trailer.

I don’t know anything about Mortal Engines. I don’t know if it’s from a book, a comic or the fevered brain of Peter Jackson directly. All I know is that the teaser trailer was insanely cool! Giant motorized cities cruising around the apocalypse having mobile war? It looked amazing! I’d never seen anything like it!

But you know what I have seen before? About 95% of this dumb new trailer.

Are you kidding me with this? You have this crazy original visual to play with and show off, but your trailer is standard stock sequences of Hugo Weaving and vaguely attractive young people standing around in metal  hallways debating blah blah blah?!

I realize the movie doesn’t come out until December, and therefore a lot of the CGI probably isn’t finished, but show us something! This movie will live or die on its awesome visuals, and after this trailer, it looks pretty dead to me!

Mortal Engines, show us what you got!
