With a bullet to the face and a bunch of traumatic memories rising to the surface, the first trailer for Sony's Bloodshot is finally here. And after what's felt like an eternity of waiting, the footage surely should have been met with thunderous applause and about a thousand posts per minute on social media. Vin Diesel playing Ray Garrison, a murdered Marine who comes back to life and is infused with nanotechnology to become the killing machine known as Bloodshot? Academy Award-winning screenwriter Eric Heisserer joining forces with scribe Jeff Wadlow to pen the script? First-time feature film director Dave Wilson bringing the famous Valiant Comics character to the big screen for the first time ever? Sounds like a recipe for comic book movie success that would start with the release of the first trailer.
But when Sony dropped the first Bloodshot trailer on Monday, October 21, many fans were left disappointed by what they saw.
The biggest gripe some fans have about the first Bloodshot trailer is that it doesn't feel like a trailer at all it feels like an entire film condensed into 2 minutes and 40 seconds. Many people across Twitter and in the comments section of the trailer on YouTube expressed dissatisfaction over the trailer seemingly spoiling all the narrative beats of the film.
One user tweeted:
"Whoever made this trailer, should be fired. Spoiled the entire movie in just 2 [minutes]."
Another wondered why the trailer didn't show off just "a few action sequences" instead of apparently laying all its cards out on the table. They wrote:
"Seriously why do they give away the whole plot? Only a few action sequences should be enough to build some hype."
Over on YouTube, even more people were upset over the evidently spoiler-heavy trailer. One user wrote, quote, "When the movie comes out I'd say I watched [it] already just from this trailer." Keep watching the video to see why some fans are upset over the first Bloodshot trailer.
