Trailer Talk with Shah: THE DETAILS – 2012

I like Tobey Maguire. And I like that he’s stuck around after the horrible-ness that was SPIDERMAN 3. This time around, he does one of those black dram-ody films with THE DETAILS.

‘The Trailer doesn’t give us much, other than a guy with issues who apparently is a respected doctor among his peers, however, also cheats on his wife. Multiple times.

One of those times happens with be with Ray Liotta’s wife, who then blackmails him for it. On top of it all, it seems like Maguire’s character is also dealing with a raccoon infestation.

The Trailer for THE DETAILS then kind of spirals into this edited mish mash of repeating scenes and loud dialogue, maybe meant as Maguire’s frustration with trying to deal with everything? Not really sure.

It’s kind of disorientating, and doesn’t really give us much insight into the story. Elizabeth Banks plays Tobey Maguire’s wife in THE DETAILS, but she’s barely seen in the Trailer.

The scenes meant to be funny, come off as jarring and shrill. As much as I want to like this movie, the Trailer makes it very difficult to do so.

THE DETAILS might be a rental for me, long after it releases in Theatre’s on November 2nd, 2012

Are you going to catch THE DETAILS as see what former Spiderman is up to? Let me know in the comments below.
