Worst Trailer I Have Seen In A While…Giving the product away?

Here is the trailer for the new Beyonce Movie: Obsessed

I particularly like how the trailer not only gives away every twist and angle of the film, but also the ending. At 2:30, it is unusually long for a trailer and seems more like an actual summary of the film rather than just a teaser or thesis statement of sorts. The whole approach was very familiar.

Also, I think it may have been more interesting to see Beyonce in the stalker role…more of a departure. The woman has sung in EVERY one of her previous films…make her a psycho stalker, not a victim wife. BOO!

I do kind of like the poster…sort of..

What is the significance of the black SSE? Is it a play on the interracial nature of the extramarital affair? Is it a random effect by a designer? Is it to show the rift between the two groups...seperated by color, connected by letters... What do you think?

Just to reiterate the obvious: A trailer is supposed to entice you to see the film, not give you reason to avoid it. Regardless, it should be hitting HBO in a couple of months, perhaps I’ll check it out then…or, perhaps not.
