Finally, the official release of the trailer for this sprawling epic about family, greed, corruption, and the pursuit of the American dream.

Written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, Magnolia, Punch-Drunk Love), the film is inspired by Upton Sinclair's novel "Oil!". Paul Dano, Ciarán Hinds also play leading roles.
Also, a quicktime version of the previously available, slightly different and longer trailer version.

Trailer number four (or maybe five, I lost count) for this sequel. And it seems this one is targeted at the fans of The Bourne Ultimatum. Fast editing and a driving score. Not bad.

Diane Kruger, Justin Bartha, Harvey Keitel and Jon Voight return. New to the cast are Ed Harris and Dame Helen Mirren.

Different US trailer for the latest crime drama from Woody Allen.

She crosses the two men by accident on her path and when one of them falls in love with her, she becomes aware of her power to attract the opposite sex and uses this to the point of leading the two brothers, who are in financial difficulty, into crime, and creating a dangerous rivalry between the two men. Tom Wilkinson plays their father.
