Metro Manila trailer: this is how you sell a film
Of course the lack of dialogue here is meant to disguise the fact that the film is mostly not in English (although British audiences don’t seem to have quite the same aversion to reading subtitles as U.S. ones do). But having seen the film — it’s fantastic — I can tell you that this is a fair representation of what the movie feels like that hints at what it’s about without actually revealing anything at all.
The question then is: Does this succeed in making potential audiences want to see it? What do you think?
