Here is the new trailer:

I liked the teaser trailer for the movie, but this full trailer definitely solidifies my interest in the movie. It feels reminiscent of the original, but mostly feels genuinely like it’s own thing. It seems to be a cross between the 1977 version and the recent BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD. There is a slight weight to the tone that makes it seem like it could stand next to movies like E.T. and THE IRON GIANT and not MONSTER TRUCKS.

The cast is also pretty impressive with Bryce Dallas Howard, Robert Redford, Karl Urban, Wes Bentley, and Isiah Whitlock Jr. Every one of those actors is pretty damn dependable and if they are saddled with the right script, which I’m getting the vibe is the case here, they can turn in stupendous work.

I’m hopeful.

PETE’S DRAGON takes off on August 12th.
