The Ultimate Trailer Suck-Off / Dustin Rowles
Trailers | February 2, 2009 | Comments ()
Last night’s Super Bowl gave us our first glimpse at two of this year’s most/least anticipated big summer blockbusters: G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. And hey! Guess what? They look fairly similar — 30 seconds of mind-numbing explosions with a few exclamations thrown in. Personally, I’m going to give the slight advantage to G.I. Joe, simply for not sucking as much as I’d expected. But, then again, it’s only 30 seconds. It’s difficult to fit a lot of suck in such a small window. Revenge of the Fallen, on the other hand, gave us no reason to believe that it wasn’t simply a remake of the first film. And where was Rainn Wilson in The Revenge of the Fallen teaser? There was an hour-long “Office” episode following the Super Bowl — they felt no need to include Wilson?
Check em’ out, if you didn’t catch them last night:
