I'm still excited for it, I just think the trailer would have been better served leaving out beach fight.
I'm more surprised by the fact that they're embracing a whole new level of silliness with Idris Elba as a genetically-modified super-soldier.
Well, it is meant to be a spin-off featuring the F&F series' two main brawlers so it would make sense to focus more on the different types of fighting they could do (and the first part of that trailer is a relatively generic hallway fight).

Also lmao at comparing the haka to line-dancing, that's the kind of thing that could get your ass kicked.

"Here's an idea. Let's take a pseudo MI/Bond movie about cars and technology and throw in a beach front fight scene that looks like a bunch of people line-dancing."

A complete 180 good/bad from the 1st trailer to the 2nd.
Pretty sure it ground to a halt once it brought on the director of Atomic Blonde and Deadpool 2.

Besides, people loved it when a Bond movie decided to have its 3rd act take place in a run-down mansion instead of in some exotic underground lair so, y'know, not without precedence to change things up like this.

No, the bad thing to say would be that Alien: Covenant is better than Alien.
Alien Covenant is a disgrace
It was one of my favourite films of 2017.
Yes way.

And yet it's still better than American Gangster.

I have a lot of respect for your writing and and analyzation skills.

...but you way-cray
Whatever, in my experience it doesn't make a significant difference (if any). Probably doesn't help that the most recent times I ended up in an IMAX theatre were ones where I was down the front, though.

However long it takes to come up with an appropriate date to mark it, like how 4/26 is called Alien Day in reference to the planet where the Xenomorph eggs are discovered is referred to as "LV-426" in Aliens.

I distinctly remember Summer Heights High being a genuine nationwide phenomenon when I was in high school (I really did not care for it myself) but I couldn't speak to any of his more recent shows having that same level of success (but then again, I am really out of step with what's popular with the locals). Getting validation from overseas certainly gave him a much longer shelf life even though people have been giving him sh*t over his racial caricatures for years but then again this country's already pretty racist so...
