his look in the trailer (based on a white man's fantasy paintings of American Indians, rather than the way any actually dressed)
Huh, I didn't realize that, but you're right - the painter isn't native at all. I'd assumed he was. That of course makes it even worse.
Having seen this full trailer, with that damn bird all over the place, I'm starting to think this could just be a Catwoman
-level bomb, with Berry's costume and the bird playing analogous roles. I guess that, if even crap like On Stranger Tides
can become a billion-dollar movie, and Alice in Wonderland
making a killing, no one at Disney's got the stones to tell Depp not to do that.
