I‘ll be the first to admit that when Jonathan posted the first full length trailer for Michael Mann’s Public Enemies, I wasn’t all that impressed. Something about the trailer didn’t work for me. But then I saw it on the big screen and something changed. Not only did it look amazing but the music added a great heartbeat that pushes the trailer along and once I’d see it, I couldn’t get it out of my head for hours. And it’s not just the music that I can’t let go of but also the images.
The boys at Rope of Silicon have a second trailer for the film which features a lot of the same footage cut a little differently. It’s doesn’t have as much punch as the first trailer but the opening sequence is gorgeous even in this little version. It’s a trailer designed to target the dramatic film fans whereas the first was all about the energy.
Seriously though, we don’t need any more sales pitches; we’re already sold. Public Enemies opens on July 1st.
