Hey look it’s the trailer for the new Clint Eastwood movie or whatever

So Clint Eastwood has a movie coming out called Invictus, and it’s so Oscar Baitey that it makes Crash look like Paul Blart: Mall Cop. It stars Morgan Freeman and a blond Matt Damon, and the first official trailer was released today.

I like Oscar-type movies, the snob I am, but after watching this…seriously? What a schmaltzy trailer. I hope the film turns out fine — I mean, pretty much everyone involved is awesome — but when the overplayed concepts of “destiny” and “fate” are mentioned in the preview, there’s a problem.

Oh, and also: I don’t like how movie trailers intermittently insert text between the video that ultimately says nothing. And is, like, one sentence long.

He was born in a slaughterhouse… But he found out…. Through the triumph of his will… And his guiding voice and muse… That freedom… was… The Meat of it All…. Coming this November.
