The question marks for 2013: Fifth Estate, Mandela, Furnace, 12 Years a Slave movie trailers
The Fifth Estate, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, 12 Years a Slave, and Out of the Furnace could all be given serious awards consideration by the end of the year. But the trailers? Not much to go by, really. There's just something about each of the four trailers that just don't feel right. Out of the Furnace looks the most solid, but the Mandela and Slave look awards-baity. Also, The Fifth Estate looks like The Social Network goes political. That's just my judgment of the tone of the trailers. Hopefully this'll just be another example in a long line of lame movie trailers, but still... I have my reservations.
