Cutting a trailer that runs 3 minutes and 20 seconds is not an improvement. At this rate I am left with the impression that the movie will be five hours long and frankly I do not think I could stomach 1 hour and 30 minutes.

I see the parallels being drawn to current situations, like invading Afghanistan and Iraq, not to mention ties made to all past colonizations, but there are plenty of great movies that address such things without relying on lengthy CG filled trailers. Dan made a great point that the “this is our land” line at the end is a little too Braveheartish. Guess what? Took me two viewings to get through that piece of crap. Never want to see it again.
