Children Of Men

There's a trailer on Apple for Children Of Men starring Clive Owen...the plot looks good...

The world has lost hope as women have all been rendered infertile and the youngest person on earth, 18, has just died...

The rest you can see in the trailer

Children Of Men

I also believe this will be a good one. Michael Caine is looking like a freak in it.

I really liked Clive Owen in King Arthur, but this movie just looks dumb to me

I chuckled when I saw the "from the director of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" tag (this movie is so un-Harry Potter). But yeah it does look like an intriguing movie, plus its got Michael Caine in a hippy hair-do.

While building a print yesterday, I had to put this trailer onto the reel. I slowed down the reel for a few seconds to check, and there was a frame of Clive Owen and Chiwetel Ejiofor on screen together.

At that moment, I knew I was sold.

I got lucky today and got a wristband to get a Children of Man poster signed by Alfonso. They didn't allow any pics inside but he's a really nice guy who loves to talk about movies.

I really like the cast. And it didn't hurt that the trailer gave me goose-bumps either. Not the same kind of goose-bumps that I had after The Fountain trailer, but goose-bumps none-the-less.

I'm there. I wasn't crazy about Y Tu Mama Tambien, but Prisoner of Azkaban was magical (no pun intended).

"Children of Men" Trailer

Did a search for "children" and didn't see this.

Children of Men

Hadn't heard about this one. Looks pretty neat. I've always like Clive Owen, and post-apocolyptic + high concept sounds like my kind of movie.

nice lookin trailer. looks good. i love sci-fi movies that don't delve too much into sci-fi (ie Gattaca). it had a kinda "Code 46" vibe to it (didn't like that movie too much). Anyway, I'll definitely catch this one. and for them using a Sigur Ros song in the trailer.
