When it comes to body language, most actors get the dramatic emotional scenes fairly accurate - however the more moderate and subtle nonverbals are often off target. Not so here. Britt Robertson is shown in the above "Tomorrowland" Trailer-teaser and her facial expressions are spot-on.What follows is a partial analysis:
0:14 Subtle Sadness expressed in a slight lower lip pout and a distant stare.
At 0:21, she displays a great mouth configuration of regret, just after the officer says, "One money clip ...."
At 0:39 we see a combined anger and disgust (irritated) expression. Her eyebrows are slightly pulled together and downwards, her midface is tightened and her nostrils are slightly flared.
Still during 0:39, eyelid closure - amplifies both anger and disgust.
During 1:10, after Robertson's character (Casey Newton)
shows a fantastic expression of both sincere and curious disbelief. How does this differ for the nonverbal of sarcastic incredulity?
Although we can't be 100% sure, this accuracy and consistency of facial expressions suggests that Britt uses the Stanislavski method. Hope the plot is just as good.
