Deja Vu trailer online

DenzelWashington.jpgThe trailer is now online for Tony Scott's latest film Déjà Vu, yet again starring Denzel Washington, and also featuring Val Kilmer, James Caviezel, and others.

The film is looking more and more intriguing, first the blurb hit me...

Called in to recover evidence after a bomb sets off a cataclysmic explosion on a New Orleans Ferry, Carlin is about to discover that what most people believe "is only in their heads" is actually something far more powerful--and will lead him on a mind-bending race to save hundreds of innocent people.

...and then the trailer gives things quite a stronger sense of the film. You can see it over on Yahoo Movies [QT:WMV|S:M:L:FS] through Coming Soon.

I can see a similar style to Washington and Scott's previous venture, Man on Fire, but that's no bad thing. It looks like this could be a strong film. What do you think after the trailer, intrigued, confused, uncaring?




This looks amazing.

I'm gonna be somewhat restrained and attempt to not overreact but this thing has got my attention by the balls. You're right, the tone is straight from Man On Fire but it's his style and if it ain't broke don't fix it. This is totally on my to do list.

On a boring personal side note (don't bother reading on if you're not interested), one of the (if not THE) most remarkable movie-going experiences of my life was back in '04.......

I was transferred to the North of Ireland by my employer to go on a training course and flew to Derry all on my "Tobler" (as in "Toblerone"/"own"/all on my own..... forget it) and was put up in a Travel Lodge for a week with 4 TV channels and no local friends. Bored out of my mind.

But there was this really nice little theatre just next to the hotel which seemed to have just been refurbished, all nice, in red velvet seats/curtains/wall dressings etc. Very swanky. 5 screens and a decent time sheet. But anyway........

Bored one night, I went in and plonked down my money on a ticket for a movie I had not even heard of.... The movie was called Man On Fire.

I sat down in the screen and happened to be the first one there, so chose my seat and was well looking forward to watching a flick to pass the time. Then..... nobody else turned up. I began to wonder if I was in the wrong screen or not. (Remember the "Daredevil" incident Spidey1703? lol) But then, sure enough, the Cert Frame ran and it said Man On Fire so I stayed.

10 mins in..... nobody else shows.
20 mins..... no-one.
30..... nope.

This was getting weird.

I had this whole screen to myself. Must have been 300+ seats. Bizzarre experience. And I began to feel angry. Very angry.

The film was unbelievable. Compelling, dramatic, well performed, perfectly produced, beautifully shot... breathtaking in my opinion. I loved every minute of it. I could not fault this movie. I was angry because it felt like I was the only one who cared about it.

I felt like running out to the box office and saying: "Excuse me, I'm not sure if you're aware of this but I'm the only person watching Man On Fire." I was just short of grabbing strangers in the street and buying them a ticket. Totally surreal expeience. It was as if I had the worlds coolest living room for two hours!

I must go back there someday.

Did I just spam off topic?

Kind of, but totally acceptable! I did enjoy Man on Fire which I just saw the other week - review coming. I really enjoyed it, and along with a Scott documentary it makes it even stronger.

I get that during screenings in Edinburgh, there's usually only two or three on a good day. Sometimes only me!

Haven't you two had this conversation before?

Maybe in a past life

Very intriguesd, thus very interested.

Hope this project saves Scott from the failure that was Domino.

This definitely looks interesting. I haven't got around to watching Man On Fire yet but my girlfriend has it on DVD so I'll give it a view soon.

Rynndar, don't remind me about the Daredevil incident!

How long did we sit there talking crap till we noticed were in the wrong screen?

Never let me buy the tickets again.

Oh dear Rynndar, what a mistake to make! I don't think I've ever done that yet, but I have been sitting there wondering if I'm in the right screen, particularly when I can be there on my own.

Schoolboy error,

Doesn't apply himself.
Must try harder.
