Cinderella teaser trailer aka "The Shoe".

I've been staying off the internet for a little while to get some stuff done, but apparently, Disney just dropped the first teaser trailer for Kenneth Branaugh's upcoming Cinderella movie.  It features what must be the finest, most cutting edge piece of high definition digitally rendered footwear Hollywood has to offer.

You can see it HERE.

But yeah . . . it's a shoe.  Apparently, some people went absolutely nuts about this teaser, though.

It makes me wonder what people are looking for in the trailers for fairy tale films.  I remember when some of the earliest trailers came out for Jack the Giant Slayer, they made the movie look really dark and intense.  Those early trailers didn't do much for me, because I often interpret "dark" as "gloomy" which doesn't jibe with my view of "Jack and the Beanstalk", which I always viewed as more of a comical adventure story.  Also, the movie itself was hardly dark in the least.

Anyway, what do you think about the trailer and fairy tale film trailers in general.  Comment section is below.  You know what to do.


  1. Cutting edge? As in, cut-crystal edge?
    I'm looking forward to that movie, but the trailer does not have me in raptures. As you say, it's a shoe. Yup.

  2. Well, it's a teasrer, not a trailer. I stopped expecting much from teasers, when I saw the one for Frozen (which was just sidekick hijinks on a frozen lake). Atleast this one tries to show the actual mood of the movie.

    And after all those grimdark screen adaptions that turn stories full of wonder into mere action/horror flicks (Nothing against action or horror, but if I wanna see an action movie, I won't watch somehing called Snow White and the Huntsman), I sure need one which brings that sense of wonder back to the big screen.
