…a big tease.
Nolan has the teaser trailer down to a science. Show just enough to get everyone interested in the movie without actually saying what the movie is about, which is nice since half the trailers out there show everything from a movie it seems.
From the trailer, all we know is it deals with space and Mathew McConaughey is in it.
Check out some of his other teasers, they do the same thing.
At the end of this one, big time goosebumps. Once again, you don’t know what the movie is about until the very end when you see literally a nanosecond of Batman flash across the screen and then the slow reveal of the Bat symbol.
You know it’s Batman, but don’t know who he’s fighting, who the other characters are, what the story is
Ok, so it says that your mind is the scene of the crime
“Wait, what? How? Aw man, I can’t wait to see this movie to find out” -Everybody.
The Dark Knight Rises
It’s a little tougher to have a good teaser when the main character is already known and we, as the audience, know who some of the possible characters are, so this one isn’t the best, but it makes up for it at the end. All of a sudden, BAM, Batman backing down from Bane. Batman never backs down. And to top it off, he’s winded and laboring. You know he’s gonna take a beating (and if you know the comics, you already know that was going to happen) That few seconds alone makes that teaser great.
Instead of teasing the plot or story like the Inception and Interstellar ones do, this one teases a character- Bane.
Let’s be honest though. As soon as “From Christopher Nolan” popped up, I knew I would be seeing this movie, irregardless of what the teaser was like.
