It's the first film Christopher Nolan's made since The Dark Knight, and stars one of those amazing collection of actors that Nolan seems to be able to nab so easily: Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ken Watanabe, and Cillian Murphy. The fact that the trailer makes absolutely no sense dissuades me not a bit. I'm more pumped for this movie than anything else this year.
This may be the first and only time I ever say the phrase "I absolutely cannot wait to see that Nicolas Cage movie. It looks unbelievable." This is the restricted trailer, for those of you who are at work or squeamish.
Iron Man 2
If this trailer doesn't rev you up for this thing, I don't know what will. It tells us for sure that the franchise hasn't run aground just yet, the way the Spider-Man 3 trailer did. Speaking of which, anyone seen a Spider-Man 4 trailer yet? I'm curious to see what's happening with that.
It's Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon, making a movie that they pretend isn't a Jason Bourne movie, but is clearly a Jason Bourne movie. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Worrying preachy overtones in the trailer give me pause, though.
For a movie that looks nothing like Robin Hood, I'm awfully sold. It still looks epic and at least moderately swashbuckling, and it is, after all, Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe. You've got to assume that they know what they're doing here. It's still gonna be the fattest Robin Hood we've ever seen, though.
