The Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close trailer

October 4, 2011

The book was a bit complex and trailed off in different directions, but the main character of Oskar was so compelling I thought that if they pared the story down, it would make a great movie.

I’m looking forward for this film. I loved following Oskar’s quest through New York and the constant feeling of his father over his shoulder.

However, I do agree with this point:

5. The jarring use of U2 in the trailer is worrisome

For all of the trailer’s “high-falutin’ awards artsy-fartsiness,” says Buchanan, the use of U2’s rousing “Where the Streets Have No Name” suggests that Extremely Loud is making a bid for the mainstream. But its use is distractingly cloying, says Kate Erbland at Film School Rejects, and tugs at the heart strings so manipulatively that it’s “almost hilariously terrible.” This could be a very bad sign.
