We have been alerted by 'Cesar' of a new trailer for Eragon
thanks to Fox Japan. Besides remaining in English, the new trailer features a ton of new clips from the film including shots of a baby Saphira.
Now come the complaints.
Japanese Eragon Trailer
I can now see why Fox has waited so long before showing any footage of Saphira hatching or a baby Saphira. Though I first thought the film may rush this part of story, which would have sucked, it turns out that the CG work on Saphira as an infant just isn't that good; which also sucks.
Childish special effects in the opening scenes could really hurt Eragon. I can only hope that Fox is working as we speak to improve upon the baby dragon.
Besides CG work, the Japanese trailer features what sounds to be temp music; is this an incomplete version? Compared to the Eragon trailers before it, which all had rockin' music, this trailer had something that I can't even explain. Heck, I'll try: slow, monotone, not good. The trailer then ends on what sounds like Mozart. What a sec, that is Mozart!
I'm still trying to figure this trailer out. Some new additions are great, but they quickly get cancelled by the bad. Watch the Japanese trailer for Eragon yourself in the following formats:
