Why would someone make a fake trailer for Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity?

Aug. 11, 2011by:

Normally, I get the whole fake trailer thing. Either you want to show off your supremely good (or often terrible) video editing skills to put together something that could pass as reasonable, or you just want to trick people and get lots of hits on your YouTube page.

This makes sense for films like say, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES or MAN OF STEEL perhaps, but why do it for Alfonso Cuaron's GRAVITY? The film has floundered to even secure a cast these past months and years, with actors like Robert Downey Jr, Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman all passing or leaving. I think the current cast has Sandra Bullock and George Clooney in the major two roles.

Someone is hotly anticipating the film, as they're trying to pass off this video as a teaser trailer for the project. Some choppy space footage and zero actors makes it a pretty clear fake, but on this rather slow news day, I thought a few of you might be curious to at least see the effort.

Forgery aside, I hope this film can manage to get itself made, as a Cuaron sci-fi flick is bound to be promising despite casting woes.

Well that was a waste of time.

If you gotta post fake trailers, can you at least post good ones or really bad ones rather than boring ones...

Jumpkickpunch broke this story (if you can even call it that) five days ago.Not only is this fake trailer non-news, it's also very late news.

A clue when trailers are fake, the first 40 seconds are company logos.

Why?

Why would you post this? Slow news day aside, this is not a worthy post for an otherwise supreme movie site.
You're better than this. Please don't lower the standards of Joblo.com with crap like this. Like, ever.

It's a slow news day, folks. If you'd rather we post NOTHING, I guess we'll do that next time. I never understand these types of comments. If the story doesn't interest you...just move to the next story. Do you really need to call the ENTIRE SITE into question? Geez...

Short answer: yes, I would rather you posted nothing. Here's the deal, Serge, this is my favorite movie site ever. I love it. So when I see sub-par (non)stories posted about lame crap, I respond... out of love. Tough love. Your readers are the ones you should be listening to in order to make the site better. Don't be sensi. Take it as constructive criticism and that's it. Have a contest instead. another poll. Whatevs. Be creative. That's why we show up. :)

I like Cuaron (Children Of Men and Prisoner Of Azkaban are epic! The dude is a beast!) and I like Clooney, but I kinda loathe Sandra (she was good in Crash. That's kind of about it.) ... And don't make me talk about how they just GAVE her an Oscar...

thumbs down for cramming to many words in between brackets

Guilty feeling for giving you thumbs down after realizing you had a coco avy.

I like Clooney, but I still wish Downey Jr. were still doing the film. Or hell, Cuaron reteaming with Clive Owen would have been good too.

Why would someone write a useless article about a fake trailer?

Even better question.
