Some elements of the trailer for Russian director Andrei Konchalovsky’s The Nutcracker in 3D make sense: Elle Fanning plays a blank slate/child, Nathan Lane is a kindly uncle, and John Turturro is a Rat King. Virtually everything else is jarring! Rat King’s rage blackout at 1:42, the Nutcracker’s nickname “NC” (-17?), a killer helicopter that can jog. What strikes me as the oddest thing — other than the fact that NC’s face is a dead ringer for the orange lady in the classic Sesame Street clip “Orange Sings Carmen,” — is the lack of dancing. Does it even matter? Does anything matter anymore? Watch the trailer and vote below.
