Sunshine four minute extended trailer
There's another disappointing trailer online, this time for Sunshine (Filmstalker review), but this isn't a poor trailer, far from it. This is the extended trailer at a mammoth four minutes and twenty eight minutes.
Now that's great, because what you get, for those of you who haven't seen the film, is a huge insight into the story and the characters as well as the effects. However what it also does is it shows you all of the major sections in the film, the entire plot, even a couple of scenes that will show you one or two of the characters who just aren't goingto make it.
I'm all for strong, less formulaic trailers, but there are ways to make them without giving away too much away, and this one gives a lot.
You can see the extended trailer over at Apple Trailers [QT:M]. What do you think? Too much?
The film is the story of our dying Sun and the second mission to go and deliver an explosive payload that might just restart its life, if not, it promises to die forever and the worldwide winter will continue to get worse. However the crew have to deal with the strange disappearance of the first mission, and what could have happened to the ship and its crew.
Sunshine is written by Alex Garland and directed by Danny Boyle, and stars a great cast with Cillian Murphy, the stunning Michelle Yeoh, Benedict Wong, Chris Evans, Cliff Curtis, Rose Byrne, Hiroyuki Sanada and Mark Strong.
