Julia Roberts laughing in every trailer
Before we get into backs hitting the water, ever notice that every trailer that Julia Roberts is in, shows her laughing? Seriously more often than not it happens. Is it bad, no. Is it kind of funny? yes. There’s a new trope and it’s an underwater shot, then someone hits it back towards the camera. Usually with dramatic music playing.
Backs hitting the water
Another trailer trope is the underwater shot and then, back first, a body comes hitting the water while a camera films from beneath.
One more for good measure.
So there you have it, now I’ve ruined it for you. Next time you watch a trailer be prepared for the new trope. Backs hit the water with dramatic music playing.
