The Nice Guys (2016) Film – 70’s Retro Trailer

Warner Bros. has released 70’s styled retro trailer for their upcoming thriller-comedy The Nice Guys complete with grain, technicolor and the film running off the reels. The film is a spiritual successor to 2005’s terribly underrated Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. The film takes place in the 70’s where the mismatched couple of  a goofy private eye and a tough enforcer who are brought in to solve a missing girl’s case.

All trailers so far have successfully shown the film’s great humor and style which are trademark of its director Shane Black. The film’s story outline is quite similar to Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, which if anyone saw can attest to its genius. The latest trailer is completely made and narrated in the classic 70’s style. It has everything from the film grains, the very distracting spots, the film seemingly running off the reels and of course, narration , a technique which has become a thing of the past.
