When I saw the first trailers in the early stages of the movie production, I was a little unsure of my opinion as I thought that they seemed a bit disconnected, especially for people who have not read the books.
However, I have found that the new trailers explain it quite well, and I think that they make it more accessible to people who aren't fans of the book.
Well, all in all, I am excited about the upcoming film, although Dimitri Belikov is does not look how I expected. I don't know what I expected though.
I admit, I was tickled by the "look alive" comment from the gym teacher! I think that this series, both in writing, and from what I can gather, the film too, both have a sense of humour, making the whole affair a bit seriocomic.
There are so many YA novels becoming movies at the moment, it's nuts! I will write more about them in the upcoming week.
