One would assume that the trailer for Oscar winner Ang Lee's (Brokeback Mountain, The Ice Storm, Sense and Sensibility) new movie would be released right from the start in some hi-def version, but no, a .flv file hosted by amazon. So I've uploaded the quicktime version that was very briefly available last week to rapidshare.
Espionage thriller set in WWII-era Shanghai (with some serious sexual tension I might add). Tony Leung plays a powerful political figure in 1940s Shanghai who gets swept up in a dangerous game of emotional intrigue with a young woman.
Beautiful trailer that looks in parts like a version of In the Mood for Love in which touching is allowed.

Among the cast members are Ian McShane, Frances Conroy, Christopher Eccleston and Amelia Warner. Two trailer variations to choose from.

A story of four orphan teenagers growing up behind the closed doors of a catholic convent in outback Australia. For years the boys watch the younger orphaned kids leave with their newly adopted parents. One day the Reverend Mother sends them to visit the seaside for the first time where they meet a young couple who would make the perfect parents.
Looks like one of many coming-of-age stories if not for the fact that one of the boys is played by, gasp, Harry Potter!

Violent revenge movie in which Kevin Bacon plays a guy who's a mild-mannered executive with a perfect life, until one gruesome night he witnesses something that changes him forever. Transformed by grief, he eventually comes to the disturbing conclusion that no length is too great when protecting his family. Kelly Preston, John Goodman, Aisha Tyler and Garrett Hedlun are also part of the cast. Directed by James Wan who is responsible for a lot of things that have to do with everybody's favourite torture porn franchise Saw. So it comes as no surprise that the rating reads "Strong bloody brutal violence". You've been warned.
