First trailer for Zack Snyder's (300) adaptation of Alan Moore's graphic novel. When an ex-superhero is murdered, a vigilante named Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley) begins an investigation into the murder, which begins to lead to a much more terrifying conclusion. Other cast members include Patrick Wilson (Nite Owl), Matthew Goode (Ozymandias), Billy Crudup (Dr. Manhattan), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Comedian) and Malin Akerman (Silk Spectre).
There have also been three more video blog entries since I posted the first one a while ago that document the movie's development.
Body of Lies HD480p 32MB HD720p 72MB HD1080p 127MB
Dramatic thriller directed by Ridley Scott (American Gangster, Gladiator, Blade Runner). Based on Washington Post columnist David Ignatius' 2007 novel about a CIA operative (Leonardo DiCaprio), who uncovers a lead on a major terrorist leader suspected to be operating out of Jordan. When he devises a plan to infiltrate his network, he must first win the backing of cunning CIA veteran (Russell Crowe) and the collegial, but perhaps suspect, head of Jordanian intelligence. Although ostensibly his allies, he questions how far he can really trust these men without putting his entire operation - and his life - on the line.
DiCaprio seems to still channel his previous role and Crowe speaks funny, but other than that it looks interesting. I mean, it's a Ridley Scott movie.

Second teaser for the big screen adaptation of the first book of the series of youth novels written by Stephenie Meyer scheduled for release in December. It tells the story of 17-year-old Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) who moves to the small town of Forks, Washington to live with her father, and becomes drawn to Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), a pale, mysterious classmate who seems determined to push her away. But neither can deny the attraction that pulls them together even when Edward confides that he and his family are vampires. Directed by Catherine Hardwicke (Thirteen, Lords of Dogtown, The Nativity Story).
It still makes me laugh. I'm sorry.

On a lighter note, a coming of age comedy (which is obviously also always a drama) that centres on a 14-year-old girl who keeps a diary about the ups and downs of being a teenager, including the things she learns about kissing. Directed by Gurinder Chadha (Bend It Like Beckham, Bride & Prejudice).
Snogging is such a wonderfully descriptive word.
