At CinemaCon, there is usually at least one movie that seems to come out of nowhere, and you immediately want it in front of your eyes. This year, one of those films was The Creator from 20th Century Studios and Disney. It's from Rogue One director Gareth Edwards and is exploring some high-concept science fiction. Today, Disney and 20th Century decided to drop the poster, a teaser trailer, a bunch of images, and a summary explaining what this movie is about.
Everyone has genres that they are just an easy lay for, and, for me, it's movies like this, and I love the exchange at the beginning of this trailer about who gets to go to Heaven. It stuck with me after we saw it at CinemaCon, and I'm glad it's in this version of the teaser for The Creator. Put it in front of my eyes, please.
