The new Rings of Power trailer is here. Check out the trailer for yourself below. I found it both beautiful, yet also underwhelming. But decide for yourself first. My guess is that this is the last full trailer until the premiere on September 2.
Everything looks great here, don’t get me wrong. Yet I’m less excited by this trailer than I was the previous one. How so? Well if we break this trailer down, what it boils down to is something fairly generic. An orchestral theme, some action shots and location shots, and a few lines of overarching dialogue. It’s kinda ten a penny for me. Sure, we see some shots we have not seen prior, but I can check out artists renditions of Tolkien’s mythology anytime I want. What I didn’t get from this trailer was a hook.
That’s not to say I don’t think the show is going to work. All I’m saying is there is nothing in this latest trailer that will help inform me on that decision personally. I’m still excited for The Rings of Power, but the same worries and concerns I’ve had since the day it was announced are also still there. Will this work?
Until I get to see the premiere for myself I really can’t say. Hell, it might take to get through Season 1 in its entirety before we fans ca truly make that call.
What you can be sure is that LRM and GenreVerse will have you covered. I’ll be writing written reviews of the episodes each week and on the GenreVerse Podcast Network we will have a new review show. We don’t quite have a name for that show yet. I’m thinking, any ideas would be welcome. But we will have a ton of opinions about this show in both written and visual/audio format.
What do you think of this new Rings of Power trailer? Do you agree with me that it’s beautiful but underwhelming. As always, leave any thoughts below.
