“Valkyrie” & “Revolver” trailers

The official trailer is finally up in YouTubage for Brian Singer’s Valkyrie.? This one looks good. Tommy Cruise seems to be doing a good job of rehabbing his career.? However, he’s supposed to be German how hard could it be to fake a modest German accent?? That always bothers me.? I don’t want to watch the movie and be thinking the whole time that I’m watching Tom Cruise with some doofy eye-patch on, ya know?

Also, remember Guy Ritchie?? He was the hotshot British director, often labelled as the next Tarentino.? Both Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch are generally revered with awe and admiration, well, okay, it’s more like geeky filmboy love.? Anyway, he married Madonna and his career disappeared faster than a hooker running out of church.

Well, supposedly Revolver was going to be his return to form.? He shot the movie back in 2004, it premiered at the Toronto Internatinal Film Festival in 2005 and it’s been sucking a duck in terms of US distribution since then.? Basically, it’s already on DVD for the entire world, but now it will see theatrical release in the states on Dec. 7.

Yahoo Movies finally has a trailer and though it doesn’t look bad, it doesn’t really inspire me to run out and see the movie any time soon.? Revolver stars Jason Statham, Ray Liotta, Andre 3000, Vincent Pastore.

Official Plot Description: Gambler and conman Jake Green (Jason Statham) always ran with a bad crowd and it cost him seven years of his life when he took the rap for mean Dorothy Macha (Ray Liotta) and wound up in jail. After his release, Jake becomes unbeatable at the tables using a formula for the ultimate con that he learned from two mysterious fellow prisoners. Now he is ready to take his revenge. Macha is plotting to eliminate his ruthless rival, Lord John, and has staked his credibility on a huge drug deal with the all-powerful Sam Gold. Jake visits Macha at his casino and humiliates him publicly in a game of chance. Macha fearing more of the same medicine sends his goons to ?take care of? Jake. His life is saved by enigmatic Zach (Vincent Pastore) who, with his equally inscrutable partner Avi (Andr? Benjamin), offers Jake protection. Against his better judgment, Jake accepts. He soon finds himself playing the very last game he wants to be playing, and there is danger at every turn. But the biggest danger of all comes from a totally unexpected source?
