What a shite trailer.

Is there a bigger franchise than Jurassic Park that has such a low good to bad film ratio?

Another thing, I understand they need a hook to make this different to The Lost World but the volcano...who builds a theme park on an island with an active volcano?

Alien? 2 decent films versus 6 bad ones, so 1:3

Fast and Furious, 1:7

Transformers which is currently at 0.

I'd say JP is at 2:2

I meant franchises that had at least one great film so Transformers doesn't count.

Alien is a good shout.

The premise alone sounds like it will be rubbish.

If they just call it “Massive Dinosaurs v Enormous Volcano” then I am sure SyFy will show it.

'save dinosaurs from an exploding island'? Jeez, sounds like a lazy plot. Also at least say erupt and not explode.

I'll still see it no doubt, but my hopes are pretty low.

Jurassic world was good though. Excellent ending too, the final battle was pure cinema joy.

As shite as Jurassic World and that trailer were, I've realised that Jurassic Park is the only franchise of films greater than a trilogy where I've seen every installment on release at the cinema.

I'm obliged to keep that run going, aren't I? :dread:

Looks very strange, like a cut scene from a game. Plus the big eyes are just weird and makes it looks like a terrible cgi Pinocchio movie.

I. Definitely going to see Jurassic world 2. I don’t care if people think the plot is lazy or silly. That’s not what the films are about, they are about the great cinematic moments and set pieces. They are great popcorn flicks to be enjoyed in the cinema.

Hang on, Robert Rodriguez is directing, and James Cameron only producing? I thought Battle Angel was Cameron's big project after Avatar and the reason it's taken him so long to get round to continuing Avatar?

I loved the Gunnm/Battle Angel Alita manga, but really don't know if I want to have a live-action movie version made.

I'd take a live action version if George Lucas directed it. It'd be called Battle Angel Alito, a taut political thriller about some supreme court/White House scandal or some gooseberry fool.

Fetch me old brown trousers, bring them to me now, I'll wear them in the rigging as they fire across the bow. Fetch me old brown trousers, I fear we may be hit, for even if they shoot me now, they'll never see me... ;)

strawberry float. I mean, I get what they were going for with the character design, intentional uncanny valley and all, but she just looks like a cyborg Gollum.

Gunnm/BAA was all about the density and weirdness of the world and the body horror destitution of its inhabitants. That trailer makes the Scrapyard look far too clean and far too ordered compared to the manga.

Not a good trailer then, but with a cast like that also not enough to dismiss it entirely.
