This much awaited geekfest of a movie opened yesterday in the USA to shrieks, gasps applause and fairly predictable reviews.
The trailer, true to modern tradition, tells you everything you need to know. I particularly like the multi movie referencing, for the robot emerging from the sand, think The Mummy, the scared but cute girl clutching teddy gaping skyward is Gertie from ET. There are touches of Herbie, Independence Day, a little Top Gun and even Duel (albeit with a neat little reversal) You've seen it all before, but with the weather we've been having you'll be seeing it this Summer all over again.
I have my fingers crossed that it's going to be pretty cool.
