So we finally got our Frozen trailer! Yeah! Oh, and I almost forgot. We were lucky(?) enough to also get a Free Birdstrailer today too. I threw in that question mark, because while it is always nice to see a new trailer for an animated movie, the film may not seem as, um… exciting as Frozen, and since um… releasing this trailer on the same day maybe wasn’t the smartest move on the part of the Free Birds marketing.
Oh well. They can’t change things now, so let’s just enjoy(?) the fact that we have a new trailer.
This movie just seems very predictable. Not necessarily plot-wise (although that will probably be generic too) but just cheap-animated-movie predictable: average animation, slap-stick comedy geared towards children, holiday-theme for marketing purposes, and A-list actors to reel in every other poor soul.
Maybe it’s just me, but I can’t get very excited for this film (although that may be because I just watched the Frozen trailer about 1 billion times and now I am just so pumped for that everything else seems dull in comparison.) However, this movie will probably be fine. I can already foresee a couple of lukewarm chuckles.
I hope that I am not offending anyone with my “meh” attitude for this movie. Let us know if you have anything positive (or not) to say about this film!
Free Birds will be released on November 1st, and features the voice talents of Owen Wilson, Amy Poehler, and Woody Harrelson.
