The Real Hot Dogs

Last night I saw the second Narnia film, Prince Caspian, because I hate owning 12 dollars. Although I was fairly ambivalent about the movie, I still love watching films on opening nights because you potentially get to witness never-before-seen trailers before having them ruined on the internet.

Case in point...

I really don't know what to say about this trailer. I was considering being sarcastic and writing a post about how "awesome" this movie looks, but frankly I just can't bring myself to do it.

Because Oh. My. God.

I think, watching that trailer for the first time in theatres, I fully experienced the five stages of grief (Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance). Oh, and I also shat out of my mouth.

I really didn't like Prince Caspian, and I have a feeling that this trailer is partly to blame. Whenever something good happened in the movie, I'd be like "Awesome. Oh wait, I'm living in a world where Beverly Hills Chihuahua is possible. Fuck my life."

That being said, I'd argue that the advertisers may be genuises, because in the past 24 hours this trailer has been all I've managed to talk about. Well played, Disney. Well played.

Oh no wait. Fuck You.
