Not because I don't love the film or the characters or because I'm not looking forward to the film (I so am!!). The problem with trailers is they usually show the best bits...sometimes the only good bits (as in the totally misnamed Epic - I found the film a complete let down compared to the trailer). So multiple trailers run the risk of re-showing those good bits and becoming repetitive, and/or having to reveal more. Now, to me this new trailer revealed a major spoiler (if you don't want to know or would rather find out for yourself, skip to the video at the bottom.
We get to see Peter's dad. Much like How To Train Your Dragon 2 and Hiccup's mum, I feel that would have been so much better left as a reveal in the film itself. Did Marvel think putting it in the trailer was a better marketing idea? Or a way to beat any media outlet from getting to spring the secret? I don't know the thinking, but it disappointed me. I was going to see this film regardless but now I feel like a big spoiler was given away (plus I've seen the fight with the big space octopus multiple times now). Maybe they should just stop at ONE trailer..
Having said that, I loved the teaser trailers for the new Star Wars films. For one thing, they really did tease, hardly giving anything away. But maybe it was because I was so desperate to see every last snippet released, firstly because of the wait and secondly because, at the start, we had NO idea what Disney was going to do with them that I'd forgive anything. So I don't have any objection to those plus a main trailer. But can we keep surprises for the films? Pretty please?
Later today I'm fulfilling one of my bucket list wishes (although I don't technically have a bucket list because I really don't like that term). I'll be meeting Warm Bodies author Isaac Marion. Squee! Excited doesn't quite cover it...
Spring is well and truly here. The frogs have been busy in the pond and the spring plants are blooming.
Edits on Revived are progressing and revisions on Keir's Shadow are ongoing. KS has already grown 5K this year, and 5K last year, but the word count is now fluctuating as I cut things as well as adding. I'm only about 16% of the way through though. Revived is 94% done on edits.
In the meantime, the Tauriel cosplay is also progressing though I don't yet have the dress material.
We're now getting one or two eggs a day, and the girls are enjoying time back out in the garden, but the last few days have been a bit too wet for them to go out and so no photos this week.
See ya next week!
