This trailer is pretty great all the way up until the last line. At which point this whole trailer is turned to shit. Directed by Gus Van Sant, co-written by Matt Damon and John Krasinski, based on a story by David Eggers. All this good will goes down the drain with it’s overly cheesy trailer ending verbal emotion punch.
Hopefully Frances McDormand knocks this out of the park like she does with everything. Also there is something about Rosemarie DeWitt I just love.
That last line didn’t bother me too much. I’m definitely interested, but I just hope that the trailer didn’t just spell out the entire arc of Matt Damon’s character (Corporate gas guy figures out that people and farming are more important than the gas company he works for blah blah blah). There is the potential for a more nuanced look at the cost/benefits for the people (you could be a millionaire vs. struggling at a dead end job etc). We’ll see.
