Day One – First Trailer

Filed under: Day One, trailer — Tags: , — Roco-D @ 1:21 pm

Here is the first trailer for NBC’s upcoming series, Day One.

It reminds me somewhat of a cross between “Heroes“, “Lost” and dare I say, “FlashForward” (well, the trailer for FlashForward). The framework seems clear enough – a disparate group of people have to work together to survive a global event. What isn’t so clear is WHAT took place? I hope they don’t go down the stereotypical “alien” route – if anything “V” has that covered. The ambiguity is intriguing however – it will probably lead me to watch the pilot and maybe a few episodes after that.

I’m not totally sold on the trailer, some of the ‘moments’ had me rolling my eyes. That said, Day One looks like it has potential.

up, up and away!This movie looks great! According to MovieWeb:

An old man (played by Ed Asner) ties a thousand helium balloons to his house and floats off into the stratosphere. He is accompanied on this adventure by a young boy scout that accidentally stows away on his front porch. Together, they get into all kinds of crazy mishaps.

At this point, I could very easily offer an advanced review of the film. Forty-five minutes is an awful lot of footage to view from an eighty-minute cartoon as a preview. It’s sort of frustrating, because I don’t want to have to sit and wait through these same forty-five minutes all over again when Up gets a proper release on May 29th. I want to watch the ending right now. Damn it! And in Up’s case, it truly is a stunning cinematic achievement that I didn’t necessarily want to be whisked away from. Especially right in the middle of the second act. I was surprised at the emotional depth the film packs. There is a clear and definite reason why this old man has decided to float his house into the heavens, and its rendered in a deeply touching ten minutes that just might break your heart.
