Much more than a trailer, this is more like a first glimpse at the film. After watching this twice, I still really don’t know what the hell it’s about or who the characters are, what they do or what they’re motivations could be, but holy hannah does it look fantastic on an epically grand, cosmic scale. Which could also mean it’s a complete non-sensical mess relying too much on star power and CGI effects work. I do get a bit of the much contentious, “Mr. Nobody meets The Adjustment Bureau in more of a fantasy world” vibe coming off this thing.
But here’s hoping this is the imaginative and creative opus that it looks like it could be. Based on a novel by David Mitchell, I do believe that this is a rare case in which I’d like to get through said novel before tackling the film; ya know, so I can criticize it “fairly.” Official IMDb synopsis is as follows:
An exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution.
We have the full trailer under the seats in crystal clear Quicktime format.
