It's a trailer so it's filmmaking by advertisers, but if Spielberg wasn't headlining this, how interesting does this even look? Instead of remembering the quality of Minority Report, this got me thinking about the misfire that was War of the Worlds. Let's hope it is good because if the best of Spielberg can have something to say about the spectacle environment of blockbusters today, it would be a great thing.

It looks bad. BFG was insulting. I wonder how much Spielberg cares about these movies.

I guess this trailer is for people who have read the book? All we know from this trailer is: Future, VR, and Nostalgia. There's no story. There's maybe one shot that looks like something Spielberg would do. I still haven't seen BFG, but War of the Worlds isn't a misfire. It takes a hit in the third act, sure, but it's still good.

Totally agree with you. The whole time, I just wanted the trailer to even hint at an answer to the question, "In purpose of what?"
