Hey folks, Harry here... Ya know... sometimes you see a trailer that simply remembers how it is done. How to perfectly entice you into the theater... How to tickle your fancy into saying, "I'm There". The new theatrical trailer for A.I. is simply perfection. As perfect as any trailer could ever be. I still know nothing about the film thank god.... I still am completely vague about what I'm going to finally see.... AND, there is just one... ONE.... Classic image from the film that just gets me in the most magical sense.... I'm there. I'm so there. I'm there with bells on and clutching my chest hoping to fall in love. I want this movie to sweep me away. And I want Spielberg and Williams and that little Hayley Joel Osment kid to tap the stake into my heart.... I'm ready to fall in love with this film. It feels like something magic is coming.
sorry to bombard you with 3 posts in one day, but I was cruising by Countingdown.com, and low and behold, within seconds, they had up the latest trailer for A.I.
The trailer is very vague, much like the first, however, we are treated to some spectacular graphic design work, like the text floating around rectangular black boxes in the first teaser. There are two very vague screen clips you will see.
WARNING: I am going to give a spoiler to one of the clips down below, concerning a visual effect sequence. I suggest seeing the trailer, or not going any further, if you want the mystery to remain so.
In Clip #1, David is seen at a doorway, and a little teddy bear seemingly walks up to him. This is not some ghost, nor is it demonic. This is "Teddy." Teddy was a fixture for Daniel in Brian Aldiss' story "Super Toys Last All Summer Long," the basis of A.I. Daniel could communicate with Teddy, as could Daniel's mother, and possibly the father, though you don't read of such a thing in the short story. In the story, Daniel discusses with Teddy how he can tell his mom that he loves her, as it is not as easy for him as it is for us.
This trailer is very moving, and it is as emotional, and beautiful as the first one. As an animation/art student, the A.I. trailers are artful yet make you want to see more. Well, I'll stop talking so we can view the next step in evolution.
