Trailer Blazer: 'The Da Vinci Code,' 'Poseidon'
Two shiny new trailers! Ch-ch-check ’em out and tell me what you think, yo!
The Da Vinci Code (May 19, 2006) Is it just me, or could the opening half of this trailer just as easily be for an X-Men sequel? I mean, you’ve got Magneto’s voiceover about being ”in the middle of a war, one that’s been going on forever,” one that will ”devastate the very foundations of mankind.” After that, though, things definitely start looking more like Dan Brown’s novel, with Paul Bettany mutilating his gams, Audrey Tautou (Amelie!) racing through the streets, Tom Hanks sporting a really weird ‘do (left), and…ooh, anagrams! When you’ve finished viewing, reimagine the trailer with PopWatch pal Helium as a costar, then visit the official SoDarkTheConOfMan.com. Fun!
Poseidon (May 12, 2006) Wow, here’s a remake that looks totally unnecessary, totally schlocky, and — who am I kidding? I’m so going to see it. I mean, there’s like 123 people in the cast, so you know there’ll be lots of groovy death scenes, and the tidal wave looks pretty cool. The thing is, though, they’ll never be able to outdo Shelley Winters holding her breath while swimming under water, so they’d better not even try it. I’m serious. I’ll take my sunglasses off if they go there.
