I’m feeling kind of basic today. Nothing fancy or overly informative. Just two movie trailers to what many consider to be the worst of the Superman films.
It’s time to dig out the trailers to Superman III and Superman IV: The Quest For Peace.
Two things fascinate me about this trailer the first being how they completely misrepresent Richard Pryor’s role in the film. This is common for trailers but it is glaring here. The second, and more important point of interest is how they pretty much give away the ending for the film in the trailer.
You blew the ending.
In the freaking trailer.
That’s great. That’s just great. No need to see it now, I guess. Good job!
Who cut this thing together? And what executive or producer looked at it and said, “You know, it blows the final reel but let’s put it through anyway.”
As the kids say, “WTF?”
