Or people think the trailer looks good because it isn't a mess and you can tell what's going on. But nah, that can't be it.
Yup. The whole "if this was a Michael Bay film, everyone would be shitting on it" argument is super weak. Uh yeah, that is because Michael Bay has proven to be a shitty storyteller and can make even $200 million movies boring. But the same cant be said for GDT. He has a loyal following for a reason. This isn't Transformers and this isn't Michael Bay, and that's why some people are (gasp!!) actually intrigued.
