  • First trailer dropped at SDCC yesterday.



    Anyone else really looking forward to this? I read the novel about 4 years ago and have been excited for this adaptation ever since. While not my first choice to direct (I was hoping for Edgar Wright), this is right in Spielberg's '80s wheelhouse. I like what I'm seeing.

  • I was a little disappointed by the book, found it more towards the sophomoric and juvenile side of things.

    But I like what I see in the trailer, looks like Spielberg and his director have added some much needed grit and complexity to the story.

  • I was wondering, did anyone else catch that the instrumental music at the start of the trailer, plus the three-note tone played over the the title were an arrangement of Pure Imagination from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory?

  • The use of Pure Imagination in the first trailer was a nice touch, as was the little chime/jingle from Back To The Future at the end of the new one. Really hoping this isn't just a mess of CGI action. Looks pretty cool though.

    Funny though, the novel (I read it about 3 years ago) was distinctly about 80's pop culture, yet in this trailer there's a lot of 90's and even 2k stuff.

    Example:

    2:05 --- Commander Shepard (Femshep)!!!! Right behind Chun Li... There was no mention of Mass Effect or Street Fighter in RPO ....

  • Yeah I expect a lot of Spielberg liberties to be taken. Hopefully they're negligible.

  • Final trailer. They're really doubling down on the Willy Wonka vibe.
