The second teaser trailer for JJ Abrams’ Star Wars Episode VII has debuted…
People were all atwitter over on, uh, Twitter when this was released. My reaction was more muted: “Meh.” Not that the trailer looked BAD, because it didn’t. But because I KNOW who made the movie: JJ Abrams.
Don’t get me wrong, I like a lot of Abrams. Fringe, Mission Impossible III, the first rebooted Star Trek.
The rebooted Star Trek was an action movie. Which was fine, as far as it went. But the second (Into Darkness) was a disaster. It took the old series and movies, chewed them up and spat them out, then served the result as if it were all brand new.
HINT: It wasn’t.
My dread is that this movie will turn out the exact same way.
