Awesome Idea For a Movie Trailer

Postby Clumpy » Tue Sep 04, 2007 11:04 pm UTC

Imagine this. I'll post the link if you'd like to read the original but paste it here:

---

A group of FORENSIC DETECTIVES is sitting in a large board room, going over unseen photographs. The camera pans over the room, to the grim face of DR. WOLFSHEIM, the program head.

DR WOLFSHEIM: "We are tracking a dangerous maniac - every time he kills, he adopts the surname of his victim. First his name was "John Jacob". Then he killed Doctor Flaversheim Jingleheimer. "

[A BEAT AND CAMERA ANGLE CHANGE]

DR. WOLFSHEIM: "Dr. Schmidt, I'm putting you in charge of the investigation. We need to stop our friend before his name has a chance to grow any longer."

INSPECTOR SCHMIDT nods grimly.

---

NIGHT - INSPECTOR SCHMIDT is working at his drawing room computer, beads of sweat dotting his brow as he feverishly searches through documents, images, databases. A beat. The music rises as sudden comprehension dawns on his face. The music rises to a crescendo, and, as the camera draws nearer and nearer to the man's face, the music comes to an abrupt halt:

INSPECTOR SCHMIDT (WHISPER): "His name is my name too."

A window breaks downstairs. SCHMIDT darts toward the window. Follows a random sequence of violent images - the type usually seen in movie trailers: Too blurry to see clearly, a shrouded figure swings an electric eggbeater. Someone jumps off of a roof. A fire hydrant explodes. Work with me here.

---

Finally, everything fades to black. Spooky childrens' voices start singing.

CHILDREN: ". . . whenever he goes out, the people always shout. . . there goes John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt. . ."

Through each beat of the pre-chorus ("LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA!!!" ) a letter drops into place until the screen reads "July 2008" in blood-red letters.

Something is dreadfully wrong with you.

I love it.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

Perhaps both are in order.

Why aren't you king of the world yet?

Oh, right. Remember me when Hodge dies, and you claim the throne.
And if you win you get this shiny fiddle made of gold,
But if you lose, the devil gets your sould!

QFT.

I wouldn't see this movie, but I would buy eight hundred repetitions of the trailer as a box set.

Ah no, I avoided the scouts and have nothing to do with them ever.

O_O That's creepy and I would love to see that trailer...
"His name is my name too..." I never thought how chilling those words could be.

Finish the Fight - July 2008

Someone needs to make this movie, and make it now. With a Blizzard Polish to it. But will John Jacob serial killer be a kid as well, or a middle aged man....

That is one of the best ideas for a movie ever.
