      Oh my god, this movie looks so wonderful! It broke my heart, hugged my eyes and gave me hope. I love the music, especially the first piano theme, which I believe was composed for the movie since they show the character playing it on the piano. I cannot wait for this, so excited! And it comes out in October, only 3 months away. Usually you'll see a awesome looking trailer and then have to wait a year or more to see the movie! Fantastic! :)

          This one and Noah seem like the most abitious movies right now. Those Wachowski's sure like Hugo Weaving.

                And Run Lola Run is the best time loop movie ever and this has that feeling to it but on a much grander scale.

                  This Look like A very Daring Project but I have high hopes for the this I personally like the matrix trilogy and Speed Racer is One of those movies that I dont Own but if it's on HBO I will watch it and laugh at its stupidity. And the Cast on this in absolutely phenomenal.

                    The trailer was incredibly well put together, but I feel that this film will ultimately have too much confusion and narrative for the common moviegoer to handle, and too much drag and visual quirks for critics to hang on too. I hope it's not the case, and even if only I enjoy it, that'll be great, but peoples careers are also on the line with this mammoth project. I hope this works out for everyone.

                      I'm not sure what I feel about this just yet. I don't really see it as good or bad, just a hard sell for me. I wasn't familiar with the book so I can't really say anything as to its vision. I'm not particularly a fan of The Matrix Trilogy, loved the first one, but the two that followed fell quite short in my opinion. I saw some comments comparing the look of it to Speed Racer. Can't say that I agree with it, just that I definitely didn't care for the movie itself. The Wachowski's had potential with their style and vision when they first appeared and grabbed our attention with their first big project, The Matrix. But I've long sense lost the enchantment for their work. Sometimes not even a cast as quality as this can save an overall movie. I'll keep my eyes peeled on this one. I may just change my mind.

                                    After watching the trailer, I can tell it's gonna have a lot of story lines and time periods to keep track of. Oh boy. As for some of the visuals, well, let's see how they fair on the big screen.

                                      Movies 1,5 hours long tend to have 2,5-3 minute long trailers. From that I'd say this movie will be 3-3,5 hours long. That would be great.

                                        @rufio it is a rather long trailer... most of the good stuff comes towards the end!
