Mary Poppins or Scary Mary?

A movie trailer often tells us a lot about the film genre - whether it's a comedy, a drama or a horror story. Sometimes, however, a clever manipulation of the scenes can be quite misleading! Do you remember Mary Poppins, the Walt Disney family musical which gave Julie Andrews an Academy Award for her role as the nice (though unusual) nanny? Well, look at this fake trailer and see what the film has become... What elements contributed to the change? Think about the music, the rhythm and choice of images and the lines written between them!
