Check users reaction on the trailer

One user wrote, "A movie that never ever needed a sequel.”

“There's someone at Paramount who knew the music was a terrible choice, sitting back in their chair and laughing right now,” another added.

“When the rap starts playing, I thought Vin Diesel was going to show up with his V8 in the arena,” some other said.

Other user said, “Jay-Z music in a gladiator movie trailer lmao”

“This looks like it's made for people who've never even watched the original rather than actual fans of the original,” some other added.

A user commented, “The vibe they went for with this trailer is so out of alignment with the emotion of the first movie.”

“Music is terrible. Not suited for this genre”

“How come nobody can cut a good trailer nowadays. This is garbage”

“Guess no one has to watch the movie now.”

“The rap music tells me this movie is for the children. The trailer tells me there is no compelling heroic arc in this story.”

“Who keeps making these unnecessary sequels”

“Worst trailer ever”

“Embarrassing and pathetic.”

“We were asked "are you not entertained?" in Gladiator. Well, it looks like we aren't anymore. This trailer shows almost everything wrong with movies in 2024 and it only took 3 minutes.”

“My expectations were low, specially after Ridley's Napoleon defeat. Trailer started good. Tension & drama. Well done. Until that song at the end... worse than an intestinal flush after eating expired oysters. Change it now, please.”

“That music is the most atrocious choice and SUCH a turn off for a period film! It's like playing NINE INCH NAILS”
