    Not impressed with the trailer. The kids voiceover got annoying real fast.

    Sappy, bait-y, manipulative to the nth degree.  Crack-cocaine for the Academy, thusly.  A fitting example of just how bad 2011 has been, movie quality-wise.

    We really can’t come to any solid conclusions about the film from its trailer, which is ultimately just a piece of marketing. Doesn’t look too bad. I’ve seen better trailers, but I’ll wait and see with this one. I thought Stephen Daldry’s “The Hours” was brilliant, but “The Reader” wasn’t good at all (haven’t seen “Billy Elliot”), so this could fall anywhere on the spectrum.

    Billy Elliot’s my favorite of Daldry’s (not saying much). At the very least, this was written by Eric Roth (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Forrest Gump).

    This will either be very good or will end in disaster.

    Just watched the trailer. Seems more like Billy Elliot than The Hours (which is promising).

    This…does not look promising.  What I mean is that the trailer is cheesy.

    That trailer ties with War Horse for most schmaltz shoved into a two and a half minute trailer.

    The schmaltz was out of control here adn the child actor got on my nerves within 30 seconds.  This does not look promising, but never bet against Stephen Daldry, he will probably go 4/4 with Best Director noms.

    Damnit, it’s these kind of trailers I absolutely hate. Why did they have to say Tom Hanks dies right away?

    It looks bad enough to win best picture.

    I read the novel, and when it starts his character has already died, so it’s not really a spoiler. His death is the catalyst for the whole story.

    Eh, I can’t judge from the trailer which is intended to sell the film to the same crowd that made ‘The Help’ such a hit (an emotional yet feel good story). The kid, for me, will make or break this thing. I’m hoping he’s more Max Records in ‘Where The Wild Things Are’ than, say, Jake Lloyd in ‘The Phantom Menace’, LOL! Maybe he’ll turn out like Jamie Bell did in Daldry’s ‘Billy Elliott’? Hanks and Bullock looked fine, but who really knows when you get a few half second shots of them. I hear Max von Sydow steals the film. Guess time will tell…

     

    P.S.- I hate the poster.

    At some point in the trailer does the kid ask,  “Are you there, father?” I was thinking that The Tree of Life was still bleeding in my brain, but I guess not.
