The New ‘Final Destination 4’ Trailer

final-destination4-posterOver at UGO they’ve got the trailer for Final Destination 4 (aka The Final Destination), which is supposedly the last installment in the FD franchise. In the trailer, and in the movie, we’re treated to the usual gang of people who’ve temporarily escaped death only to be confronted with their demise later once death realizes its mistake and comes to collect.

Oh, and there’s one other twist this time around: its in 3D. I’m not sure if that will help or hinder the proceedings but even if its a dismal failure, rest assured others will still try to make and release movies in 3D because they think that’s what the audience wants. Didn’t Hollywood try this stunt a couple times before in the early 50’s and mid 80’s and it failed miserably?

I seem to recall a little movie called Jaws 3: 3D that came and went pretty quickly. That wasn’t that long ago. Plus, does anyone remember Spacehunter: Adventures in The Forbidden Zone starring Peter Strauss and a young Molly Ringwald or Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn featuring Jeffrey Byron and Kelly Preston? Didn’t think so.

I guess its time to try it again what with this movie and James Cameron’s Avatar coming out. Maybe they’ll get 3D right this time? it could happen.

Final Destination 4, starring Krista Allen, Nick Zano and Mykelti Williamson, hits theaters August 28th. Check out the trailer after the jump.

    The gimmicks are a given, seeing as how every industry, let alone movie studios, is hurting financially right now. I DO, however, believe that the technology has caught up with us and moved beyond the days of “Friday the 13th in 3D” with shock entertainment and classic red-and-blue glasses.

    I believe with James Cameron’s Avatar this year, the technology will once again be brought into a new era. Something like that or UP was not done as a gimmick, but helped people from all over the world to appreciate where the technology is now.

    I did watch ‘Up’ and wasn’t impressed. Still, I think 3D is a fad this time as well and will eventually go away.

    My point is that I wish Hollywood would concentrate on telling good stories and forget about stupid gimmicks.

    I’m sorry, but have you even seen a recent 3D movie? You seem quite igronant for a movie website reporter. This isn’t the 1950’s anymore. Stick your head out of the sand and go watch UP, or something..And the Red and Blue glasses thing? I guess you think they use that still huh?
    LOL.
