The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader gets one last trailer.

Considering this one comes out in just over a month, I'm kind of shocked at the lack of any real attention that this third Chronicles of Narnia film is getting. Yes, right now the heat is on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part I, but I'd imagine that few but outside of the film world even know that this is coming out, let alone on December 10th. Alas, that gives the Fox production (Fox took over the series after the 'disappointing' Prince Caspian) just one week before Disney debuts the much-buzzed about Tron: Legacy. Ironically, this could give way to reverse déjà vu. If you recall, Fox debuted Avatar for the press on December 11th, completely stealing the media attention away from the wide-release opening weekend of Disney's The Princess and the Frog. If Tron: Legacy is anywhere near as good as the nerds want it to be, Disney could easily play the same trick on Fox. As for the trailer... well, it looks like a Narnia picture for better or worse. I kinda liked The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and felt that Prince Caspian was a notable improvement. But I can't help wondering if Fox should have waited a year, so they could position The Chronicles of Narnia in December 2011 as the only remaining general-audiences fantasy franchise left. As always, we'll see...
