New Lost season 6 promos

The promos for season 6 of Lost much to my delight have been showing only old footage, building up hype for this final season focusing on the phenomenon that is the show. There has also been a promo that has been airing at cinemas also focusing on what a huge success the show has been globally, this actually had the hairs on my arms standing on end and shows the vast scale that the show has attempted and achieved in the past five seasons:

However, the most imaginative Lost season 6 promo comes from the Spanish TV Network Cuatro who have used old footage plus the continuing theme of black and white and produced a trailer that uses the idea of the characters been part of a chess game. Not only does it look great but the idea stays close to Lost ideas of ideas of destiny and free will. The use of music which is Radiohead's 'Everything in it's right place' is also an inspired choice. I'm going to go a bit symbolic with these promos but I would suggest that the US promo is the Jack whilst the Spanish one is the Locke. The US promo is big and promotes what a success the show is, whereas the Spanish one is more reflective and philosophical much like Jack and Locke in the show. Maybe I'm reading too much in to this, but that is what this show makes you do.
