Final Destination 5 new trailer
I don't know why I'm showing you this trailer for Final Destination 5 because there's so little to the film that come the trailer they have to give away the core of it all, and the trailer becomes less of a tease for the film and more of a reveal of what's going to happen.
The franchise is all about a series of elaborate death sequences, that's it, that's the core of the film. Not even the core, that's the film. So with a trailer what else are you going to do but show some of the work you've put into the elaborate deaths, and then it becomes somewhat of a spoiler.
Mind you, what's the problem with a Final Destination film being spoiled? Okay, I can see that there can be some clever twist at the end for one of the characters, or not, but apart from that it's all the big elaborate action sequence to kick things off then the individual death, or attempted death, sequences after that. What more is there?
I feel it's a shame because you do get the feeling that there could have been more done with the franchise, but instead each film just follows the same formula, and the great Tony Todd is there to tell us what that formula is in the trailer.
Here's the new trailer that comes through JoBlo. Can you think of any other way they could have tackled the Final Destination stories other than this formulaic turnout time after time?
Oh, let me give you the blurb for Final Destination 5 first:
In this fifth installment, Death is just as omnipresent as ever, and is unleashed after one man's premonition saves a group of coworkers from a terrifying suspension bridge collapse. But this group of unsuspecting souls was never supposed to survive, and, in a terrifying race against time, the ill-fated group frantically tries to discover a way to escape Death's sinister agenda.
Now here's that trailer.
