trailer break: ‘Push’

Take a break from work: watch a movie trailer…

Um, how is this different from X-Men and Heroes? And Firestarter? Crap, Dakota Fanning even looks like Drew Barrymore a bit, doesn’t she?

I’m just wondering. Cuz in almost any other job in the world, if you were to go in to your boss’s office and say, “Look, see that really cool job that other guy did? I wanna do it all over again and pretend it was all my idea,” your boss would laugh you out on your ass. But in Hollywood, this is approvingly called “high concept,” when you can say, “This movie I wanna make is just like that other movie that’s really popular, and we’re not even gonna fake like we don’t know it.”

It’s the “creating an army” part that’s different, isn’t it? Or maybe the part where Dakota Fanning knows they’re gonna die?

I bet they don’t die. I bet at the very last minute, Dakota Fanning suddenly understands how she was misunderinterpreting her vision of their death, or everyone decides that their fate is in their own hands and they’re not gonna be ruled by anything so dumb as quantum inevitability, or something.

Ah! See! Right there at the end of the trailer, Dakota Fanning says they’re gonna change the ending of the story.

I so called that.

Push opens in the U.S. on February 6, and in the U.K. on February 20.
