Red Pill Junkie of the Daily Grail is skeptical about it:

Robert Zemeckis’s Project Blue Book Trailer: Historical Dramatization or Mythology Exploitation?

Thursday, July 19th


Quote:The first trailer of History’s upcoming Project Blue Book, directed by Robert Zemeckis, has just been released.

(...)

But THEN, the trailer gives a sharp turn into Tsoukalos territory by showing Hynek and his partner investigating a Paracas-like elongated skull (hmm)  and even a pickled alien body in an unmistakeable reference to Area 51 (oh Jeez…) reminding the audience this is the same channel which has kept the infamous Ancient Aliens series running for almost 10 years.

Mind you, it’s not that I necessarily find things like the Paracas skulls or the Area 51 stories less or more credible than the older reports from the so-called ‘golden age’ of flying saucers –even researchers like Nick Redfern had made the argument that the Flatwood case could have very well been a psy-ops exercise— but what bothers me is that by embedding such things, the producers may be depriving their series of the proper context in the history of UFO research; Hynek himself, for instance, was never fully sold on the idea of a government cover-up involving the retrieval of crashed saucers –though he remained agnostic about such a possibility by the end of his life.
