No Country for Old Men trailer
Friday, June 15, 2007

Hey All

Two weekends ago, I finally saw KNOCKED UP. It was the one summer movie (next to LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD) that I was eager to see, and it was so worth it. When it comes to the cheap theater in Regina, I'll probably SERENITY it (that is see it as many times in one day as I can). The thing that sucks though about something like that is that once you see the movie you're dying to see and it pays off, you don't have anything else to look forward too for a while.

Well, that's all changed now. I recently listened to the audiobook for THE ROAD and I've recently discovered Cormac McCarthy. And I had heard that the Coen Bros. were going to adapt NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN as their next movie. So I was really curious about what they were going to do.

Well, the first trailer for it is officially out, and I gotta say that this is the one film coming out in the fall I'm now dying to see. After the disappointment of THE LADYKILLERS, this is going to put the Coens back on top. This is BLOOD SIMPLE territory they're in now. Javier Bardem does indeed look like the ultimate badass and possibly the next great movie villain, I loved that "bubonic plague" comment by Woody Harrelson and the composition, color scheme and editing of the trailer seems reminiscent of both the Coens at their peak and McCarthy's prose visualized.

Here's a link to the trailer. See it. You will love it.

On a side note, do you think Nathan would be a good fit for the Coens? I think he would be.

Well now...this certainly look all kinds of intriguing. Especially Bardem's "ultimate badass" killer-cum-Satan(?) character;D

I am intrigued.
And look at the cast. Aside from Javier Bardem and
Woody Harrelson, we've got Josh Brlin, TOmmy Lee Jones, and Stephen Root (one of my favorit character actors).
