    The funny thing is it would actually be audacious to start a trailer like this. When every trailer is trying to outdo the next, what's the ultimate trump card? Silence. But you couldn't do it for the whole trailer I think.

    Shows you why music in trailers is so important.

    I think it's cool that they used the score from Hitchcock's "The Birds" for this trailer.

    1:13 - me when a cue has already been bounced to audio but now needs to be exactly one measure longer

    Well they are certainly handy for composer/sound design practice. People ask for exactly that all the time.

    Well, movie trailers have advanced to the level of an distinct art form. The art being the ability to cram as much atrocious and physically painful garbage noise into a short sequence as humanly possible. From that perspective, I'd perceive this kind of thing as a huge improvement.

    I agree... Also suspect the dialogue editor (if there even was one) wasn't counting on it being heard this way....

    1. Where are Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones?
    2. Why has the movie called "Men in Black" suddenly replaced another of those men with a woman?
    3. What the hell has happened to quality assurance?

    Yes, I'm old, grumpy and love the earlier movies.

    +1 on this. As to women.... Political correctnes is going ape shit, at least in europe. I have the feeling that roles are given to people to satisy this not brcause they fit the role. No im not a schovenist or racist, an actor has to fit the role whocared if hes male/female blacknor white, there has to be a reason why its him. Ad to the movie, Ive forgotten they announced it. Ive seen the trailer in the movies, but was rather turned away by it.

    Box office numbers never lie. Let's see how things will pan out with the new leading role.

    Trailers are a hit and miss. Often - it is like judging a book by its cover.

    Hard to believe its 2019 and people are complaining about a woman in a lead role in a Hollywood film that they haven't even seen yet....

    I'm complaining because the woman is cisgender. Sorry, still not woke enough.

    On the contrary- it's easy to believe it's 2019, because people deliberately misunderstand and get offended about something that nobody said.

    Here, have a strawwoman.

    Not impressed by the trend of making remakes and changing an established character from male to female or white to black to make it more "original and modern"..too easy and not that creative.
