I really thought this was a Clue remake when I saw the trailer in the theater today.

A must-see for me. Brothers Bloom was the only Johnson movie that wasn't great, so I'm in for whatever projects he does.

I'm sort of shocked this is getting great reviews, unless that trailer decided to put all the worst material in it. It's happened with trailers before, but it's pretty rare to have an awful trailer to a great movie. The last movie I can think of where this happened was Tom Cruise's American Made - not a good trailer, but a really good movie.

It looks like it could be charming. But man that trailer is a dog.

I guess it could also have some amazing ending, in the vain of a Coen Brothers movie. Or some mind blowing twist. It made reviews glow somehow. I just donít feel it in that trailer.

Possibly. Sometimes a movie will have such a strong third act, one forgets the first two acts were awful. If it continues to get strong reviews, I'll probably check it out in theaters - but I'm still on the fence about waiting for home video.

They review I read indicated that the film had twist after twist after twist, so the trailer might've been hamstrung by what it could show without spoiling anything.
