I know you have to sell your story in a trailer, but do you have to give away every single beat? That may not be the case in this red band Repo Men trailer, but holy shit does it feel like I have fast forwarded through the film right up to the last ten minutes. Every aspect of the plot appears to have been relentlessly spoiled. Of course maybe it’s all a major bait and switch and I’m only seeing the first act. Doubt it, though.
This is not Repo: The Genetic Opera, which started from a similar organ repo point of view and then turned into glurgh. This one features Jude “Box Office Poison” Law and a whole bunch of blood spatter. I think this seems to be a movie I could enjoy if Universal could refrain from giving away every remaining plot detail.
