I fully agree. The initial trailer was gloomy and forboding, leading us to interpret that SP would be Skyfall Part II
They didn't include any of the lighter material in any trailer really. It created an expectation of a darker, more serious, film than we got. One that certainly didn't feel like we were going back to Roger Moore territory.
But it certainly didn't deliver what that first trailer promised, at least not for me. I knew this would be the case from the 2nd trailer though. From then on they were more honest with the marketing, and I could tell from that 2nd trailer onwards that the dialogue was going to be a little naff in this one, from my perspective. The film confirmed that, again imho. It's funny how trailers sometimes can really tip you off to the film.
SF's absolutely awe inspiring teaser trailer was perfect relative to what we got in the final product.
I agree. There were rumours that this was supposed to be a two-parter. That's how it should have remained.
Whoever screwed that up deserves to be sacked/not brought back because it messed up what could have been a far superior experience (one could tell that they were compressing here and there and messing about with a vision that was a bit different originally).
Having said that, it may in fact remain a two parter after all......
Yes, I think it was Mendes who messed that part up. Pity. A two-parter properly conceptualized would have been a great way for DC to end it.
They may end up doing this anyway, but since they made SP without thinking ahead to B25 (I think) it may end up feeling disjointed again.
I remember watching the trailer in the cinema with an audience, the line about taking overdue holiday did get quite a laugh.
I am glad that line is played a lot more straight in the film, as cool as it is in the trailer.
I agree completely. I agree that teaser trailer was quite dark and intense, but it was a teaser trailer - and it did tease. But I don't think it's true to say that across the trailers there was no evidence of the humour of the film - as testified by the laughter the audience had with that trailer.
Ohmss music being one.
