you feel a series of 'wtf-like' thoughts compiling incoherently in your brain
you feel confused, intrigued, intellectually betrayed, 'hypothetically' aroused, more confused, anxious and alert
you want to see this movie, but you don't know why
your friend tells you it was directed by the same person who directed 'gattaca' which you remember feeling similar emotions and having similar thoughts about
after thinking about how you feel/intellectually respond to this trailer you discern that this movie is a compilation of cliched 'selling points' (actors with recent success, los angeles in 'the near future' as a setting, the poor man-rich man dichotomy) but thematically, the subject of 'impending doom' on an existential level and outside the context of a supernaturally 'talented' main character (james bond, captain kirk, jason statham) or an emo, 'completely fucked' main character (joseph gordon levitt in '50/50', will smith in 'seven pounds', jean michel basquiat) seems somewhat unexplored in movies, you think
you feel interested in 'finding out' if the movie is an existential thriller or just... like... what it looks like... basically
you will probably download a cam of it this evening, if one is available
