Well, you’ve probably already seen this trailer, so let me just say: yeah, it looks pretty good. More directorial flair than the first Avengers (the shot of the ballerinas; the shot of the gurney wheel), a more interesting antagonist (because James Spader is a beast), and overall seemingly higher stakes. It’s a given I’ll see this, so…I might as well look forward to it.
This, on the other hand, you probably haven’t seen, which is a shame, because this looks pretty awesome. I’m not the only one to get an Upstream Color vibe from it, but it seems to have a tone of its own (more like a cross between UC and Mood Indigo), some gorgeous cinematography, potentially dazzling editing…and an interesting lead couple in Justin Long (whom I’m warming up to) and Emmy Rossum (who…we’ll see how she does). Add in the good reviews this has gotten to date, and I’m sold.
