A little late with this, but in case you missed the internet uproar, there was a teaser trailer released for Aladdin yesterday. And oh boy is there a lot to talk about in the short minute this trailer covers. This think looks awful. I was worried the second I heard Guy Ritchie’s name attached to the movie and this trailer did nothing to dispel that. It looks overstylized to an extreme, as is usually the case with his movies. Will Smith has stirred up a controversy with every look we’ve gotten of him as Genie, and this trailer didn’t help. I can’t help but fear he is going to butcher the role made famous by the late great Robin Williams.
With this movie coming out in 3 months, it’s a little odd we haven’t gotten a full trailer. The only looks we’ve gotten are two short teasers, neither of which were very good. That doesn’t seem to bode well for the movie, if you ask me.
In all honesty, I’m not the biggest fan of the animated original, so I couldn’t care less about this live action remake. But this trailer certainly didn’t help. For those that are fans of the original Aladdin, am I missing something? Are you excited for the new movie? Drop a comment and let me know.
