Access to the second link is blocked for me. Could you describe what the hidden frame shows, please?

And btw, I don't have any particular interest in seeing the film...but the trailer is visually stunning !

That's really freaky... I think i definitely will not be ready to go to that movie when it comes out, if hidden frames like that are in the trailer.

Hmmm, I see the posted picture, but I watched the trailer at Apple's website and just to double check on the official website...nothing. I guess they changed it already. [Frown]

Hasn't changed yet for me. You'll have to pause the trailer and go frame by frame to find it.

Well, it's certainly one of the easier ways to get people to look at your movie trailer over and over...

I cannot seem to see it. My comp works kinda slow, so that might be the problem.

If it's an older computer you might have the same problem that I do. All the Apple trailers use the new codecs that only the latest version of Quicktime will play. This latest version needs Windows 2000 or Windows XP. All earlier Windows OS, such as my creaky Windows 98SE, are left out in the cold.

I guess it's time to put my old workhorse out to pasture.

Huh. That's interesting. The flash of images in that section of the trailer is really quickly edited, but I went frame by frame, and there it was. I knew it was there, and was even looking for it, but I still got a little bit of a jolt when it popped up.

I wonder why it's there.

Mel Gibson was very very purty when he was younger and before he went all crazy. That picture makes him look very creepy. The beard and cigarette-dangling-from-the-mouth-look isn't doing him any favors.

Someday I'll aquire wisdom, but for now, being a wise-ass will have to do.
