HOTLY ANTICIPATED REBOOT OF “THE CROW” DROPS FIRST TRAILER

Posted on: March 25th, 2024

“When someone dies, a crow carries their soul to the land of the dead. But sometimes, something so terrible happens… that the soul cannot rest.”

We speculated once it was announced that The Crow reboot would release on June 7th 2024, that it wouldn’t be long before we saw a trailer.

We were right, with Lionsgate dropping the first look at the action-packed scenes in store March 14th.

Being viewed over one million times in less than 24 hours, the trailer focuses heavily on showcasing Bill Skarsgard’s brutality. His portrayal of the immortal Eric Draven sees the actor use guns, swords, and anything else handy to dispatch those responsible for the brutal murders of his wife and himself.

Setting up an epic looking final showdown in an opera house, the trailer suggests a plot that is slightly more complicated than its 1994 counterpart starring Brandon Lee.

Although the trailer has done very well in the view stakes, its reception has been less-than-stellar. When released, the clip quickly received an over 60% dislike ratio on Lionsgate’s official YouTube channel.

Comments seem to compare the 2024 incarnation unfavourably to its source material, and many are chiming in that a reboot/remake wasn’t needed.

So, despite all the hype surrounding the project, it seems reception to the trailer has been mixed at best. Will this reflect upon the box-office numbers come June 7th? We’ll have to wait and see…
