LOL. Well, Meryl talk sings so it's kind of a musical. With talking.

Disappointed they give basically no indication it's a musical. The footage looks good, though!

I was about to say the same thing Kad. They're really burying the lead there.

I hope this message board doesn't spontaneously combust now that the trailer has finally been released.

It's only a teaser. What did you expect? I am sure we will get singing in the theatrical trailer.

A little singing? Maybe even just sing "I wish, more than anything..."

I will say, though, that the orchestrations sound lovely.
When I see the phrase "the ____ estate", I imagine a vast mansion in the country full of monocled men and high-collared women receiving letters about productions across the country and doing spit-takes at whatever they contain. -Kad

You make it sound like we shouldn't have expected music in it. Like if I saw a teaser for NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET where it didn't show that it was a horror movie. But what do you expect?!? Geez, it's just a trailer!

Trying to get people interested before they learn it's a musical and say, "Uh....no, I don't like musicals."

It all looks very familiar -- evidently after ripping off Bob Fosse and Fellini, Rob Marshall decides to rip off Tim Burton, even putting the Streep in full Helena Bonham Carter drag, and stealing a shot directly from SLEEPY HOLLOW.

Hopes that this will rise to being tolerably mediocre are fading.

But there was music in it... You could hear full orchestrations. I thought it was well-done.

I know, objectively, that Chris Pine and Billy Magnusson are hot.

But James Corden really does something to me. Something unspeakable.

As for the lack of singing, eh. They managed to point out that it's the director of Chicago and the producer of Wicked. Maybe that's too much of leap to 'This is a musical.' But whatevs. It got me excited.

At least they didn't say "From the director of NINE"..

The orchestrations for "Stay With Me" sounded epic and the movie looks beautiful.

I thought that was really great, and it made me more excited for the release.

It looks dreadful!

And, once again, we're subjected to Meryl's scenery-chewing and mugging. "Go to the wood!" was a terrible delivery. Ugh.

I think they are trying to market it to teenagers using a "Lord Of The Rings" feeling. Teenagers don't want to go to a musical.

Based strictly on the immediate responses so far, it looks like this trailer is reinforcing whatever preconceived notions folks had before its release. Putting that aside, I think the beauty of the trailer and the emphasis on its starry cast will serve its purpose of creating positive buzz.

That's what I thought too.

I know it's just a glimpse but Meryl seems awfully humorless as the Witch. Maybe they wanted to avoid camp and perhaps the overall tone of the movie is more serious vs on stage. But it's a musical not Sophie's Choice. I kept waiting for her to shout about the dingo eating her baby.

What a negative ninny you are Roscoe. Hope Karma doesn't bite you in the ass and make your hole bigger. Geeze Louise...

I can't wait to see Meryl Streep when she's in costume and makeup.

Well I wish they sung in the trailer, but I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. It looks like they went for a big scope here and I love that. The orchestrations also sound big and beautiful. I liked it for the most part.
