Catfish theatrical trailer online
There's a new cut of the Catfish trailer, or rather the full theatrical trailer is online, and it's looking interesting, although I'm sure even the trailer gets your mind going at what could be the outcome or the big twist in the film.
The film is a fake documentary and thriller, but it's employing the marketing trick that many sub par romantic comedies and 3D horror films are doing by including audience reaction in the trailer. In this case though I think it's good, for it carries warnings we need to hear and ensures we don't see too much of the film.
The blurb for Catfish goes like this:
In late 2007, filmmakers Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost sensed a story unfolding as they began to film the life of Ariel's brother, Nev. They had no idea that their project would lead to the most exhilarating and unsettling months of their lives. A reality thriller that is a shocking product of our times, Catfish is a riveting story of love, deception and grace within a labyrinth of online intrigue.
Now everyone should know at least that much and we should all try and not find out too much about the film beyond that, after all it's a thriller that relies on a big surprise, although even as soon as you start guessing I'm not sure how easy it's going to be to guess the surprise, I certainly have a few outcomes spinning in my head.
The theatrical trailer carries some more of the build up that the teasers have touched on so far, but not that much more. What we really get is the footage cut together in a more cohesive way and some of the audience post-screening telling us to avoid spoilers.
I think it's a pretty good trailer for Catfish. What are your expectations for the film?
