One of the great things about us here at kronosspeakeasy.com is that we all have different opinions on several topics. This happened again after the trailer for the Jessica Jones Netflix series came out. So, before you see what we thought about the trailer, how about you take a look for yourself.
All I'm saying is...I just think the trailers job should be to get your attention and make you want to see it. I don't think it has to spell out everything. "Hi, I'm Jessica I used to be a hero. Now I drink and solve mysteries. Oh and this is Luke, we do butt stuff. Here's Purple Man, he wants to do butt stuff with me but mad he can't. Ok watch my show byyyyyeeeeeee!"
This trailer is hit or miss for me. I love the tone and look of the series. I love the way all the characters look (especially the Krysten Ritter's Jessica holding up a car), I love the hints to David Tennant's Purple Man, and the scenes of Jessica in the Police Station are truly terrifying.
The thing that bugs me about this trailer is that the audio feels horribly cut together. There's a lot of voiceover and very little flow. It seems like they had an outline and just cut whatever they needed to fit the mold instead of using the story they had to get people hooked. I'm probably overly sensitive because I loved the way that Star Wars: The Force Awakens did their trailer this past Sunday.
Overall, I'm still fully on board the hype train, but after those awesome teasers Netflix put out this trailer just missed the mark with me.
I partly think it's good they gave so much in the trailer. Like not everyone who likes the shows like myself is super up to date with comic books. I had to Google who she was to have some sort of understanding of the character. So by having so much in the trailer it can get people hype as fuck for a character many know nothing about.
Being the huge Jessica Jones fan that I am, I wasn't on board with Krysten Ritter, but she does play an amazing bitch so I started to come around. The teasers were absolutely amazing and I didn't think the trailer was necessary. I didn't think the trailer did justice for Jessica Jones, but it did get me on board with Mike Colter as Luke Cage and David Tennant was hypnotic (see what I did there). Jay brings up a good point though. That trailer wasn't for the fans of Jessica Jones. That is what the teasers were for. We knew what we were getting already. I was definitely overcritical of the trailer and it is definitely better than I gave it credit for.
