Haven't read the novel but from the looks of the trailer, it's a pop culture reference bonanza and... that's it?

The book is a really fun, quick read, and there's definitely a plot. It's been a while since I read it though, and I'm not sure what half of things going on in the trailer were, like I don't remember that big race and the monster truck at all. Hopefully the movie doesn't suck.

That looks a bit... noisy for a Spielberg film. I predict a flop.

Boy, this just looks worse and worse and worse with every trailer, poster, whatever.

I don't even know what that means. Anyway, the book is fun and if executed well it should be a decent time at the movies. The book was short on character, so I'm hoping Spielberg warms that end of things up. I see a lot of hate for the marketing campaign so far so I'm guessing it won't be a hit.

I really liked the book when it came out, but so far the trailers do not look interesting at all. I'll probably see it at some point, but right now I think I'll be skipping this one in the theater.

looks like a giant pop culture video game where the developers had a blank check for licensing characters. i don't know what anyone expected other than that, trailer looks exactly as i figured it would. i'll be seeing it.

I haven't paid to see a Spielberg movie in the theater since Indy 4.

Weird that the buzz turned on this one so quickly. I remember when the first trailer came out people were wetting themselves with joy. Now everyone seems to hate it. Whomever is doing their marketing, they sure bungled this one.

The worm turns yet again as it debuts to gushing raves at SXSW. I have always felt this was a great combination of source material and filmmaker.
