Good Trailer, Meh Trailer: SpongeBob 2 and Into the Woods


I know it’s not cool to like the TV show any more – to be honest, I haven’t seen it in a while – but Antonio Banderas as an insane pirate, gratuitous Slash cameo and those superhero outfits make this one work for me. Though I do question why being on dry land is both (a) weird and (b) safe for SpongeBob and Patrick if we’re going to consider the first movie canon in any way, wherein they dehydrated on the surface and got saved by David Hasselhoff.

Into the Woods is doing that weird thing where its using buzzwords for people who know musicals, but hiding all the singing from people who don’t. It’s not really meant for me to begin with, but the trailer confirms it.
