I think I'll skip this trailer to save it for the theater, but I'm only fooling myself because the second I head out to a theater I'll see the trailer four times. Heh.

If this is a commentary on how the old generation hasn't adapted to a new generation that has them all figured out (with the old generation framed as the hero but turn out not to be), I am game!

I seem to want more social commentary in my creative works.

OH GOD! Watch the trailer. This is even more of an ego-driven project than After Earth.

Some people would cast their kids to have a "in with the new" film, but Will Smith already tried and failed that. So now it is going to be casting themselves using Marvel Youth-Tech.

I hope this film has *some* kind of self-awareness but I doubt that.

I liked this movie better when it was called Looper.

I think this "youth tech" is really Disney testing out the idea of just replacing actors with digital actors. If you can replace Will Smith with Young Will Smith, why couldn't you just replace some random guy with Young Will Smith.

This will be a game changer for sure. First they will bring people back from the dead, then just flat out move to replace people who are difficult to work with.

I am looking forward to the lawsuit about who owns a celebrity's onscreen image into perpetuity. If a thespian stars as two iconic characters from different studios, each trying to control the icon, even juicier.

If a company can own a virtual actor as property, then hitting the lottery in life would end up being an offspring from one of those immortal icons and collecting royalty checks your entire life from the estate. Imagine instead of trading film rights, studios would be trading digital actor rights. Crazy but it could absolutely happen.

It looked terrible right away. It looked worse 10 seconds into the trailer. It looked unwatchable before the trailer was over.

Thanks but I'll catch it on Netflix. Maybe.

How could you complain! It has a half-speed cover of an 80's song! Nobody has ever done that.

But honestly, CG young Will Smith was much easier to stomach than CG genie Will Smith.

And, point three: I thought this was a Netflix trailer.

Yeah exactly what I thought.
Meh. Then they combine forces and take out the bad guy.
Of course there'll be some odd twist, young guy will take old smith's
life cuz he dies or young smith will die and old smith will realize he needs to live life.
