Death wish comes to mind watching this

Shannon Nutt 06-01-07 02:18 PM

They should put "Don't Fuck With Foster" on the one-sheet. :)

Looks interesting. I'm a major fan of Bronson and revenge flicks, so this could be one to watch for. Although something tells me they're going to focus more on emotion and less on Bronson-like asskickery.

Music in the Trailer was from Mogwai and the song was Auto Rock.

Tarantino 06-01-07 03:38 PM

Hmm...looks good.

I don't care much for Jodie Foster, but this movie does look pretty good.

Sold.

You had me at Naveen Andrews.

September is looking mighty good.

Sheesh, you would think that movie characters would have learned how dangerous pedestrian tunnels are by now.

The name "Neil Jordan" does give me more confidence than I would have had from the trailer alone.

I agree with what Alex Billington said about the trailer on that site:


However this new trailer is one of the best trailers I've seen in a long time, even better than the Transformers one or We Own the Night - it's incredibly well put together and just builds up the intensity and explains just enough of the story to get you interested in seeing it. The editing is fantastic and the musical choices are amazing, too. The film itself looks incredible, and Jodie Foster with a short cut looks rather intriguing, too.

Loved the "I want my dog back," line. This has some promise, as we seldom see a movie with a woman vigilante anymore. I also predict that Foster's name attached alone will get this film a big opening from the older crowd of movie goers. They tend to watch anything she does.

mickey65 06-01-07 07:04 PM

That one does look good. Finally a movie Jodie does without having to rescue her kid!

Altho it is hard to take her seriously as a hetero woman with these "love story" themed movies - since it's know she's Gay!

I don't know, I really like Jodie Foster, but this one doesn't look so good to me. I almost feel like I've "been there, done that" for some reason.

Artman 06-01-07 09:07 PM

Meh.. I'm sure it'll be a good film, just not one I'm interested in.

Charlie Goose 06-01-07 11:37 PM

Jodie Foster is one of the few actresses...excuse me, female actors, that can get me to the theater no questions asked.

wildcatlh 06-02-07 08:02 AM

Looks good. I'll be seeing it.

stingermck 06-02-07 08:06 AM

Trailer looks good, but after watching it last night, It made me want to watch Death Wish. The Subway scene is right out of DW1.

B.A. 06-02-07 08:54 AM

yes, please.




Thanks for the linky. :beer:

eXcentris 06-02-07 04:55 PM

Looks good, but I'm more curious to see how Jodie Foster will do playing Leni Riefenstahl.

OldBoy 06-02-07 05:04 PM

looks good, but the references to "The Bride" in KB or "Dirty Harry" i think is very mis-leading.

Chuck Taylor 06-02-07 07:12 PM

it looks very predictable...

reubs82 06-02-07 10:42 PM

Spoiler:
unless she's actually in a coma the whole time and none of this actually happens....

fmian 06-03-07 04:25 AM

I really hope they push it to the limit and have her go nuts, like Patrick Bateman nuts, but killing bad people instead of innocents.

Out of Bounds 08-02-07 02:55 AM

Looks like a lame retooling of Death Wish to me. I'll probably skip it.
