After watching it several MORE times, I can truthfully say I love the whole thing.
But here are my nervous Nellie worries:
The trailer is very Saoirse-heavy, which I run hot and cold about. Hot because she carries the trailer, cold because a trailer only suggests what the final product will be and this one doesn't give the other characters a chance to shine, except maybe Chalamet.
After the previews, we are assured Florence Pugh has great moments. But those moments are only hinted at here, but at least they are hinted at. My fear, of course, is that when the movie comes out, Pugh will be a surprise to audiences, Saoirse may not be.
 
I have to admit being somewhat irritated by the scorn being heaped on Emma Watson here. I realize it's only a snippet but she seems perfectly fine, accent, too. My only small criticism over the years is that she looks a bit mousy even if she is beautiful. The beauty goes a long way. It's even focused on for a moment in the trailer.

I'm also now pretty positive the music will not be used in the movie. It seems specifically designed for the trailer and works with it perfectly.

And from what I understand, the big teary speech Saoirse has in the trailer is not from the book, but it is from another work of Alcott's.

After watching a few more times, I love the music, especially at the end when it gets in rhythm with the snippets of moments and the name titles flash by on the beat. I also loved watching Sersh interact with Mery, and dance with Timothee.

I LOVED the trailer personally. It's definitely trying to attract the general audience but you feel the same warmth and sensibility that I got from Lady Bird. I agree the score choice for it is a bit overpowering, though it's definitely uplifting. I'm personally glad it doesn't feel too period; it easily stands apart from previous adaptations  because of it.

As for the accents, It's hard to tell based on the trailer if they are in sync with each other. They are going for mid Atlantic accent, but the flow of the trailer is a bit off so it's hard to tell.

Although Sasha Stone seemed to have animus toward GG for whatever reason when LB was released, she gives a thumbs-up to the trailer as evidenced in her headline.

Glad she liked, though I stopped following SS reviews. Can't wait to read other reactions.

I liked it. But I'm always a nervous critic. At first I couldn't stand her voice. "NOW what's that accent she's doing?" I always tend to think. And I'm always worried about  the relative thinness of her voice, anyway. But I've watched it a few times now and it's fine. I worried about Florence Pugh's voice at first, too.
The music, I assume, is by that guy Greta hired in April to do the score. I can't say how I like it yet but it doesn't bother me. 
That's Tracy Letts, who played Lady Bird's dad, as the editor who wants Jo's character to be married off by the end. .

I had to google who is scoring the movie and it's apparently Alexander Desplat whose work I usually liked, not sure if it's his music in the trailer, it just felt overpowering.

I also noticed Florence's voice  ???

Look what I found.

Looks very...self-aware and modern. I don't know if I like tbh. Music is a bit annoying too.

That trailer music is likely to change with the next trailer or trailers.  It's just music to give an upbeat vibe.  The important thing is we've had very positive reactions to the film by those who actually have seen screenings.
