the lovely bones - trailer

The trailer is out for The Lovely Bones. And I'm not really feeling it. Alice Sebold's novel started out riveting and suspenseful but half-way through became too sentimental. I was hoping Jackson would get back to his Heavenly Creatures roots and create something as unsettling, but after directing three Lord of the Rings epics and King Kong, it seems that he has gone CGI-happy. The period detail looks amazing, but do we really need CGI--abliet CGI effects of heavy-handed metaphors: roses and giant breaking glass bottles--in The Lovely Bones?
