Watch: Dark New 'Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian' Trailer
Another much darker trailer for The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian has debuted. This version presents a much more grungier and intense Narnia than we know from the first movie. After seeing all of this footage I'm much more inclined to see it, but I'm still not the least bit excited for it. As much as I love fantasy adventure movies, I just can't get into the Narnia world. It feels too much like a group of misfit kids who get stuck in an overly fantastical world that steps too far out of the boundaries of Lord of the Rings. Despite my own opinion, there are lots who do like it - let's hear your thoughts on this trailer.

I do very much like the darker look to it. The first one also I remember was pretty intense for a kids flick. Still surprised about the PG raitng like the first though. However this trailer seems like a TV ad, not a full trailer.

I think this trailer this movie look even better. This just makes me even more excited about it. I am anxiously awaiting this movies release. I've loved the Narnia series ever since I was a kid and them making them into movies is just brilliant. I liked the first one a lot and I have high hopes for the second. I hope it does well in the box office though, as well as the third one so there will be a much higher chance for them to continue the series.

Having grown up watching the orignal TV shows of the Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe as a kid (I'm from England :P) these films hold a certain warm nostalgic quality for me. So far after watching the first film and enjoying it thoroughly, I can still honestly say that I'm excited about the upcoming new releases. The Prince Caspian trailer looks awesome. 🙂 To be honest, I'm glad they're bringing the mystical fantasy stories back into the mainstream.

The thing I dont like about what they are doing to these movies is removing the entire theme from the story. The books are like a analogy to God and has religious meanings in various tones, after all C.S. Lewis was a Christian writer. Even though, I still would like to see this. It looks really interesting.

fans of the books (like myself) can trust the movie to andrew adamson he is a die hard fan himself and i am pretty sure he won't pollute the stories we know and love but i think a PG-13 movie would have been better.

Is it just me, but I just don't get any of these movies.

I look forward to this next installment of Narnia. I, as well as my 14 & 12 year old Girls, really enjoyed the first. I also like the Dark look to it. Usually the 2nd of a Trilogy ends up being the Better of the 3 (Matrix Reloaded, Empire Strikes Back, etc...) with a few exceptions (Indiana Jones - Temple of Doom). With all the Over Hype some films get that then turn out to be a Big Let Down, hopefully the Under Hype means this film will have no problem standing on it's own. I know the more Epic-like the film the longer certain processes take, but I just wish they would get these sequels out in a more timely manner (Lord of the Rings, Back to the Future).

Why do folks write in and say "I just don't get these Narnia movies at all?" Are they stupid, illiterate or what? I think none of these. The issue is they are most likely sensing that something deeper must be going on but it’s never stated. Consider for example the relationship between the children and the Lion. In the movie he is their cool unique friend and a mighty leader in battle and to be respected if not feared due to his awesomeness. However this falls so far short of the character created by C.S. Lewis that it leaves some clever folks reaching for what really holds this together. In the Lewis version the Lion IS all those things to be sure, but He is also completely transcendent of them in every way, eternally pre-existent, present and active at the creation of all worlds including earth, morally without any fault. For this reason He is able to choose to purposefully lay His own life down (and be slain) in full payment of the law that holds others captive to the evil Queen. Seeing Narnia without understanding the deeper meaning that Lewis was driven to (the Lion is a picture of Jesus Christ the Lion of Judah) is the same as going to church without knowing the Lion Himself - you just won't get it. I'll be there enjoying the new Narnia movie at every level of meaning - hope you will join me.

The chronicles of narnia has been my childhood favorites! i have read all of them. I have seen the lion, the witch and the wardrobe. I loved it!! I can't wait to see Prince Caspian. I saw the trailer and i loved it! I am in love with Ben Barnes. He's just so cute. The newest attractions in the movie are reepicheep, trumpkin and trufflehunter. Can't wait to see them all. 17 days to go...The countdown has already began..

*spoilers*the movie looks great but i saw movie surfers and it said there was an attack on mirazs castle but that wasnt in the book. do they do that to get miraz to join the battle instead of the treaty?

this looks really good and I like the darker theme but usually the second movie in the series is the worst (pirates of the caribean, star wars)
