Today’s trailer stars Damian Lewis, Stellan Skarsgård, Ewan McGregor and Naomie Harris, all reasonably reliable names when it comes to how good a film is likely to be…
Quite unexpectedly though, after watching this preview, the question that’s lingering in my mind is why it is that I’m not currently filled with complete confidence about how good this movie is likely to be. The answer, I think, is in a combination of things. There’s the general look and feel which isn’t particularly cinematic. I’d hoped for more in terms of the music choice, sound, dialogue – its delivery and the trailer’s general execution in terms of how gripped I am by what I’m seeing. Especially considering the fact that Our Kind of Traitor is a thriller based on a best selling book by the author of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011).
I’d love to be wrong here because I want to believe that the editor has simply made some – in my opinion, questionable choices; which would then mean that the finished product and perhaps a later version of the trailer will be better. I’d much rather that be true than the idea that this movie is most likely not very good. Please let me be wrong. I want to be wrong! It’s just that I wasn’t wrong when it came to Burnt (2015)
Our Kind Of Traitor Release Dates: May 6th 2016 (UK)…
Let me know in the comments if you think I’m being crazy and that this Our Kind of Traitor trailer is actually very good.
Happy Film Loving 🙂
