Director of Birdman, Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy. What a combination.
The trailer is equal parts thrilling, heart-stopping and mysterious, all while matching it with great cinematography and what appears to be just brilliant landscapes as the backdrop. And I love how there’s no exposition in the trailer, just the brilliant use of music and sound to set the tone of the trailer and tantalise us. That’s a skill in video editing that I’ve always admired, and it’s used to amazing effect here.
If the movie is anywhere near as good as the trailer, I’m extremely glad Tom Hardy forwent his role as Rick Flag in Suicide Squad for this. I can’t wait to watch it.
(Then again, I really want to watch Birdman, but still haven’t gotten around to it…)
