Watch This Trailer for Alfonso Cuarón’s Believe And Tell Us What You Think [VIDEO]


You wouldn’t know it from this trailer, which proudly trumpets only J.J. Abrams‘s executive producer credit, but NBC’s upcoming Believe was actually co-created by Abrams and Alfonso Cuarón. Around here we’re big fans of both his work and girls with superpowers, so needless to say we’ve been looking forward to this for a while. But the teaser… maybe it’s just that it’s early and I’m pre-breakfast, but it doesn’t grab me like I thought it would. The show looks really generic. White dude with a troubled past rescuing people. Whoopee. But hey, trailers have been misleading before. And Jamie Chung being there pleases my Mulan-loving heart.

What do you think?

    After Helix this is another show that has piqued my curiosity.

    Video not available in my country. I don’t understand why would they want to restrict access to an advertising for their show.
    But, anyway, based on the idea and the people involved, I’m interested.

    These people who are after her seem very stupid to me. If you inflict violence and terror on people like this, then they shall return it in kind to the upmost of their “abilities”.

    I think shows/movies centered around Christ-figures are almost always tiresome, and adding a kid in mix ensures it will be smarmy and cloying as well. The only thing to tempt me is Cuaron, but that’s offset by the unfortunate involvement of Abrams.

    Why wouldn’t you know it from the trailer? “And executive producer Alfonzo Cuarón” fills the screen nine seconds in.
