The Trailer for The Trailer of THE LOVELY BONES
Yes, I am actually geeking out about a trailer for a trailer. If there was any doubt in your mind that I am an absolute weirdo, let that doubt be erased like an Etch-a-Sketch in an earthquake. Footage is up now on YouTube (courtesy of TheMovieBox.net) of an Entertainment Tonight trailer for the trailer to The Lovely Bones. The Lovely Bones, in case you’re not familiar is an adaptation of the novel by Alice Sebold, and it’s directed by Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson.
My only gripe with this snippet is the ridiculous ET voiceover. As Quint from Ain’t It Cool News pointed out, Susie Salmon does not “hunt” her killer from beyond the grave. I hope this is just an indication of Hollywood’s never-ending need to puff things up that don’t need puffing up, and not indicative of the direction Jackson plans on taking the film. But I needn’t worry my pretty little head: we’ll find out soon enough. The actual trailer, sans voiceover, is apparently due to premiere on ET tonight.
