Day 335 - Revisiting the Julie & Julia Trailer

Day 335.

Though I'm sure we've probably talked about the trailer for Julie & Julia on the L/J&J project before, I haven't had the chance to revisit it, until now.

***

UPDATE: I JUST REALIZED I HAVE WRITTEN THIS EXACT SAME POST BEFORE. BACK ON DAY 210. BUT THEN I JUST FORGOT. AND WROTE IT AGAIN. BUT IT'S SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT. JESUS, MY MIND IS GOING. WHO AM I? WHAT HAVE I DONE?

Read on if you want to compare the two posts and see whether or not I'm actually crazy.



Oh wow, okay--a few things. The trailer is good! Or at least, it's like fun, light and interesting. Which is what Julie & Julia should be! In fact, this trailer was one of the first things that drew me to this movie back when I saw it in... 2008 maybe? I don't know, I just remember that the whole blog-365-days-a-year premise was still pretty novel to me back then. It is no longer novel to me now.

Anyways, some things I noticed:

0:00 - 0:25: Leading off with the Julia Child material was the best decision they made here. Meryl at her Meryl-i-est. Got in a few good lines from the Tucc-Streep conversation. "What is it you really like to do?" "EAT!" Simply delightful, plus at this point, they've already got the fat demo under their belt. After, of course, they loosen their belts. I could definitely do without the Julie Powell voiceover though. That's just a general rule of thumb, really.

0:25 - 0:30: "But what does Julia Child have to do with me, lowly cubicle worker Julie Powell?" Ummm, nothing. There you go. I just saved you 2 more minutes of having to watch this trailer (plus, 2 more hours of having to watch this movie).


0:30 - 0:45: Mostly crap, but funny whip-pan sound effect used in the transition above. It's just comical that a supposedly somewhat serious film would use that in their trailer. Oh, who am I kidding? This movie was never supposed to be serious.

0:45 - 0:53: THESE SCENES BELOW AREN'T EVEN IN THE MOVIE!!! IS THIS LEGAL?!?! ARE THEY ALLOWED TO DO THAT--PUT SCENES IN THE TRAILER THAT AREN'T IN THE MOVIE?? FALSE ADVERTISING!!


So we have some new information to process here. Julie Powell is worried about being "lost." Not Mark Ruffalo still loves to crack wise when his wife is bitching about this or that. And Showtime bought Annabelle's blog for a miniseries. Well, I certainly didn't know that--and I watched this movie 335 times! I wonder why they cut this part out of the final movie. Probably because this was the miniseries based off Annabelle's blog:


0:53 - 1:04: Cue cheery uplifting music and cheesy title card text! Also, does anyone know what song this is? The internet seems to think that it's Merry Happy by Kate Nash, but it doesn't really sound like it...

1:04 - 1:25: I actually really like these series of goofy superimposed "this is someone typing something out" text, if for nothing else but the screencaps below.


1:25 - 2:30: Gaaaah this trailer is sooo long... Jesus, I'm bored. HOW DO YOU EXPECT PEOPLE TO WATCH THIS TRAILER WHEN IT'S 2 MINUTES AND 30 SECONDS LONG!! Hey, makers of Julie & Juila--do you have any idea of how short people's attention spans are nowadays??


Clearly, you do not.
