Too lazy to watch the teaser. However, by "back in form" do we mean Last Samurai Cruise (bad) or Magnolia/Collateral Cruise (real good)?

However, I was hoping THIS alien was in it:

Personally, I think Last Samurai Cruise was the last time he was good...

meh, looks alright. Although Meryl Streep's hemming and hawing when Cruise asked her if she wanted to win the war on terror had me rolling my eyes.

Boring! Wake me when Die Hard 5: Rated G comes out.

Not a huge Meryl Streep fan. With the exeption of Kramer vs. Kramer I don't care for much of the work she has done.

Have you seen Sophie's Choice? That made me a Streep fan.

Well, I think Cruise kicks ass and his off screen antics don't deter me at all...so with a cast like this, you can bet your ass I'll be there on November 9. Looks great.

I don't think she's ever been bad. Even in She-Devil, one of the worst films I have ever seen, she was good.

I think Sophie's Choice and The French Lieutenant's Woman are her best roles/performances.

Meryl Streep = I'm there. Greatest American actor, male or female.

Duh.

The Legend of Bager Vance

This teaser might have the worst music ever. So disjointed.

The same people who can't separate the actor from the role are the same ones who have a typecasting mentality and wonder when Jim Carrey's going to talk out of his ass again or when Adam Sandler is going to beat someone up while using a made-up voice.

IMO, Streep's performance in Sophie's Choice was the greatest performance by an actor, ever. I believe only Daniel Day-Lewis is as talented as she.

Will Redford be in the flim?
This would be first-time since Out Of Afrcia that both him and Streep were in the same movie that would be cool.
