If you've been paying attention to gigantic cardboard cutouts in your local movie theater lately, Russel Crowe is starring in Darren Aronofsky's Noah. The film (according to the trailer at least) promises to infuse the classic Biblical story with all the flair and destruction-oogling and superstar scene-stealing that defines blockbusters today.

It's no secret that once Hollywood finds a formula for success, it sticks to it for, like, forever (see Avatar 8: Electric Blue-galoo in theaters Christmas 2027!). It's so pervasive in fact that even the trailers are basically carbon copies of each other, and they all use this one ridiculous editing style. Seriously, like 99.9% of all action movie trailers ever have done this.
