American Gangster trailer online in HD

AmericanGangster.jpgThe trailer for American Gangster is online and in High Definition too.

The Ridley Scott film which tells the story of an American who builds himself up to one of the biggest crime lords in Harlem in the 1970's, doing it on the back of smuggling heroin in the coffins of American soldiers being shipped back from Vietnam.

The film stars Denzel Washington as the aforementioned gangster, a piece of casting which I think is perfect, and Russell Crowe plays the Detective trying to track him down and bring him to justice, a piece of casting I'm really not so sure about, did you hear that accent?

Another great point about this film is Chiwetel Ejiofor, a superb actor. So combine Ejiofor, Washington, Scott, and this story, and American Gangster could be one hell of a film. Have a look at the trailer and see what you think.

The trailer is over at Yahoo Movies [QT:M:480p:720p:1080p] through Coming Soon.



Great cast. Great director. A screenwriter who has written some pretty great films. I'll be spending money on a ticket to see this.

Is it just me but was that scene of the gun dropping on the floor at the end of the trailer very reminiscent to what Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) did in The Godfather? Thought that was a brilliant homage.
