And here is something else very different. Frankly I do not know if I could sit through this one. The trailer is hardcore and without compromise. Wow! And it one of the rare documentary trailer in here!!!
Amazing how much of it works on the audio level. The pictures as such are not exactly what you would call appetising! And the sound is both calming and disturbing at the same time!!!
Silent era films have been widely copied, especially those in the public domain. Did you know the 2002 Best Picture winner "Chicago" was actually a remake of the 1927 Cecil B. DeMille silent film of the same name that was itself based on a 1926 Broadway musical?
Chris O'Donnell made "The Bachelor" which took its inspiration from Buster Keaton's "Seven Chances". The one sheet image of Chris being chased down a street by hundreds of brides to be is an exact copy of the scene in Keaton's film.
Even Steven Spielberg's riverboat scene from "Raiders of the Lost Ark" was lifted from an early Herman Brix serial "The New Adventures of Tarzan" (filmed in Guatemala) in that the action is the same.
In the late 30's there was a Franchot Tone film called "Fast and the Furious" though the story differs from the present day series.
Long time since we fired up this thread... let's get to it
That Stoker trailer is genius, so artistically beautiful, not just the incorporation of the art work, but the feel, music, mood, some of the transitions, the flaxen hair to wheat to grass. The overall mood, the whole thing is mesmerizing. Also we have a strange juxtaposition with the light lyrical almost whimsical song against some rather macabre subject matter. Yet, they go about as close to the edge as they can in a trailer, but we're never off the hook. Well done.
Here's a completely different style, for a film I'd never heard of, yet it's making quite a buzz at the moment. Kind of a surprise hit, little square frame foreign language indie film in black & white from Poland that's made over $10 Million so far. This
says the distributors credit the trailer with much of the success, though it's only one aspect of their clever strategy.
An exploration of artistic minimalism? You be the judge.
Some nice touches, even moving the subtitles, or the splash of pink... enjoy
