Yesterday I was blown away to see that the trailer for 10,000 B.C. was surprisingly complete. Any big-budget epic that must employ a lot of CG usually comes down to the wire on getting the film to theaters by the time of release. 10,000 B.C. doesn't come out until March, but Warner Bros. has already got a complete trailer and, by the sound of the first screening report, a nearly-complete film.
10,000 B.C. Screening Report
The good people at AICN have received the first screening report for 10,000 B.C.. Though impressions would have been nice, the reviewer concentrates on giving details away from the film.
I believe that the film's strong points are it's action scenes and is weak points are it's acting scenes. It's a pretty simple story, one that has been told through the ages: Boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy battles prehistoric animals to get girl back, boy loses girl again, boy comes back with an army and a befriended sabertooth tiger to get girl back, Boy marries girl (in a prehistoric way). Boy and Girl live happily ever after (at least until The Ice Age begins).
The reviewer also points out that 10,000 B.C. pulls off a move similar to Hunt for Red October. Instead of making us read subtitles the whole film, the actors speak English -- just so we can understand.
