Teasers mostly provide the mood and visceral flavor; trailers do the same but they also get out the blueprints and explain the story, characters and theme. And by this strategy a just-released, phase-two Hurt Locker trailer (Summit, 6.26) does its job quite well. Except, that is, for the artificial addition of an “oh, boy” when Jeremy Renner pulls out four or five bombs from under the sand. Too folksy sounding. Some kind of barely discernible animal sound would have worked better.
There’s a malfunction, by the way, when you click on the Hurt Locker‘s website. You get nothing, flatline, whiteness.
