It was better, but...

...still without any coherence. There's just random lines thrown in with little or no meaning. That can work, if you're going for an atmospheric trailer, giving nothing away (look at the first Prometheus Teaser). But the whole thing just feels too cluttered and without purpose.

The Lord of the Rings trailers were magnificent at telling a story, while at the same time not spoiling the twists and turns of the films (with the exception of the Gandalf reveal for TTT trailers - but you couldn't really hide Ian McKellen's film credit Tongue). They were a master-craft of film promotion.

"All men dream; but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds awake to find that it was vanity; But the dreamers of day are dangerous men. That they may act their dreams with open eyes to make it possible."
- T.E. Lawrence
