I know I should probably try to point out some interesting things about this trailer, but honestly, I’m still stuck on the word “amount of time”. There’s something about that word that I just can not get past. It was fine when the author Robert Silverberg used it in the title of his short story collection because it somehow works when associated with literature. But when that word jumps over to a movie title, it spans the weight of having to carry a viewing experience, and it just becomes a laugh. Strange.

As for the trailer itself: I like all the actors involved, but there is a sense of ambiguity in the visuals that makes the film feel cheap when paired with its high concept premise. It feels like it’s destined to be one of those movies that feels like it’s debuting with a thump, with its most enduring legacy to become a bar -trivia issue years from now. “Wait, there was a movie from 2021 that had it all those actors in it? “Some infidels will say, and filmmakers will struggle to remember the name before shrugging their shoulders and moving on to the next question. It feels bad to say, but based on this trailer (which might just be a sleepy cut trailer and not complete character of a boring movie), that’s the mood I get. read Silverberg’s original source material, I have to wait and see what Ridley has up his sleeve.

Here is the film’s official synopsis:
