So, according to a poll on MovieTickets.com, which admittedly only talked to about 550 people, the most memorable trailer during Sunday’s Super Bowl was “Alice in Wonderland” — remembered by 81% of the people who watched. That was followed by “Robin Hood” at 67% and “Shutter Island” at 63%. The first trailer shown, “The Last Airbender,” was memorable mostly because, while I watched it, I forgot about the casting hate that’s been heaped on director M. Night Shyamalan.
For those of us who like fun, action-filled romps (like “Ninja Assassin”) that might not have the most cerebral story lines or “tight” filmmaking, this looks great. Who knows about the acting or story lines yet for “Airbender,” but for sheer eye candy, it (to me) rivaled the rest. Here’s the half-minute spot that ran.
