As with ‘Hunger Games’ teaser trailers, we really get nothing here. This is ultimately less exciting than the interrupted Capitol announcement. But most disappointing is that they’re showing us nothing of District 13. Going by this, and excluding one shot of people walking down stairs, it looks like District 13 is an empty warehouse.
Written and directed by Dan Gilroy, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Bill Paxton, Renee Russo, Ann Cusack, Anne McDaniels, Kevin Rahm and Eric Lange.
I’m picking up ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ meets ‘Drive’ vibes off of this, which isn’t a terrible combination — but at this point looks more like drama and brooding for the sake of drama and brooding’s sake. The repetition is interesting though.
