Trailer Blazer: 'Walk the Line,' 'A Sound of Thunder'
Two hot new trailers for you:
Walk the Line(Nov. 18) After seeing this, I’m sold on Joaquin Phoenix (left, who appearsto be doing his own singing) as Johnny Cash. I’m less sold on ReeseWitherspoon as June Carter. Maybe the clip should have shown hersinging, too.
A Sound of Thunder (Sept. 2) The first clip here filled me with dread, especially when I saw the logo of schlock factory Franchise Pictures at the beginning. My fears — that the film would turn Ray Bradbury’s elegant little tale of the dangers of time travel into a big, dumb action spectacle — seemed to be confirmed by the presence of lots of CGI monsters that looked less scary than Ben Kingsley’s hairpiece. (What is that thing, a giant meringue?) At least the second clip looks more like an adventure and less like a paleontology thesis; all that science chatter is going to be a distraction from the action anyway. If you’re going to be big and dumb, be big and dumb.
