From the second I saw the trailer for Eagle Eye, I was just confused. Is Shia LaBeouf really trying to reinvent his image? What’s going on here? I mean, how do we go from this, or even this, to… well… this? Is it just me, or does he seem completely out of place? Maybe he’s just got such a juvenile demeanor that it’s difficult to imagine him playing anything outside of an awkward teenager. I mean, the trailer is alright. But is LaBeouf in the right place? I guess we’ll just have to wait and find out. Personally, I’m not too excited, and I don’t expect much. Maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised. Though considering the backing behind the movie (Steven Spielberg producing, for example), it probably won’t do too badly at the box office.
Watch the trailer.
