Best/Worst Movie Promos of the Week: ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Banners Wow While ‘Breaking Dawn – Part 2’ Recycles Old Images

In need of a good laugh? Go back and watch that Gary Busey blooper reel, then maybe watch this new “The Making of Piranha 3DD” from Funny or Die. It’s not that the gag isn’t funny; it just isn’t as funny as Busey making a fool of himself. Also offering up an amusing show is this set tour for Moonrise Kingdom. Technically it’s Bill Murray himself giving you the tour, but it definitely feels like he’s still in character to a degree and the construction of the video basically mimics the tone and comedy of the full feature.

Then, of course, we’ve got the first trailer for The Great Gatsby. What does it say about my education that I never came across a class that required me to read the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel? Anyway, whether you’re into the source material or not, there’s no denying that Baz Luhrmann has a visually magnificent piece of work here. On the other hand, while the action still looks cool in the new red band trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, the film’s promotional campaign has yet to deliver any material that suggests the story’s got depth and the power to make an honest connection.

Speaking of making a connection, while Snow White and the Huntsman makes an honorable attempt at stepping outside the box by trying to make watching a trailer an interactive experience, watching a trailer isn’t really meant to be an element of multitasking.
