Trailer Park: Harry Potter, “Shining”

without comments

  • The trailer for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (QuickTime or Windows Media) looks pretty impressive to me, even though as one of my co-workers noted, it seems that they’re trying to shove too much impressive stuff into one two-minute trailer. Still, it’s a pretty massive book, much bigger than the three previous books in the series, and I’d bet they wanted to show as much of the material as they could so the people who’ve read the books could feel good that the filmmakers have retained as much of the story as possible. I just finished reading “Goblet of Fire” a couple of nights ago, and to date it’s my favorite in the series. There’s a ton of Very Important Story Details they’re going to need to convey, both points local to this story and to the larger “Harry Potter” mythos, and I’m really curious as to how they’re going to squeeze it all in. I swear, that movie’s going to have to be three hours long, easy. Anticipation Factor: 90%
  • For those of you who maybe haven’t really thought about the effect that editing has on the movies you watch, take a look at this brilliant “trailer” for Shining, a family comedy-drama about a writer looking for inspiration and a boy looking for a father.
