Nothing's stopping you from out doing mod's traileratar.


And what happened to Trailer A?

First... I agree with Ghostboy... I like the look of this trailer and it seems it will be better than Life Aquatic

of course it isn't "wrong" ;HOWEVER, this trailer looks like it could be a well-made parody of a Wes Anderson film trailer... it's just full of all the stuff we like from his films, but There Will Be Blood has a different feel than PT's others.

We'll see though... and I'm glad we'll see.

That's kind of it.  It's like with Darjeeling, it's an old friend you haven't seen in a while and you know it's going to be business as usual, like they never left.  But with There Will Be Blood, it's like an old friend who went off to war and now he's back... and you don't know what he's going to be like because he's been in the shit.  Is he going to be able to tell you about what he's seen or will he just have a thousand yard stare?  You just don't know.

That is nice.

This looks like it'll be REALLY similar to Life Aquatic.

On the plus side (not that Life Aquatic is bad - just don't want it again), "featuring music from the films of Satyajit Ray and Merchant Ivory" sounds like a promisingly weird and interesting twist.

It's a useful trailer. It tells the skeptics of Wes Anderson not to get their hopes up too high. The theme of a disjointed family coming together looks the same as Life Aquatic and Royal. This film also looks to have exactly the same filmmaking scheme as those films as well. Hopefully the finished product shows some growth from Anderson.

Weird, yes, but the question is: will there be a point? I'm afraid Anderson is doing this for the tie in of both a cultural and filmic reference. No bother that both references have little do with each other or even Anderson himself, but hopefully it has something to do with the story besides the generic. It will be a tough sell.

This Time Tomorrow and Strangers. 
if he is amazing, he will also use A Long Way From Home.

I'm skeptical too, given that this is film score music being reused and not pop tunes, classical music, etc. but I think Anderson will do something interesting with Ray's music.

This looks amazing. In my opinion, he's at his best while pouring on the drama. Quirky characters will only get you so far.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

i wonder if eric chase and wes would've been friends in real life, not as brothers but as people.
