Battle in Seattle trailer online

StuartTownsend.jpgThe trailer for the film Battle in Seattle has arrived online and it looks very powerful, giving a feel of an ensemble film such as Crash (Filmstalker review), but with way more action, tension and indeed direct relevance. This is based on actual events after all.

The cast looks superb for this depiction of the riots during the World Trade Organisation meeting in Seattle in 1999, including Woody Harrelson, Charlize Theron, Ray Liotta, Rade Serbedzija, Martin Henderson, Channing Tatum, André Benjamin, Michelle Rodriguez and so on.

The film is written and directed by Stuart Townsend, himself a strong actor who is making his debut in writing and directing a feature with this film. It's already been chosen as the opener to the Seattle International Film Festival on May 22nd according to Variety.

The trailer is over on Movieset.com [Flash] through Coming Soon and does indeed look rather strong. It tells the story of various different points of view of people involved in the riots in some way, from the Mayor through the police to delegates in the conference, the protesters both violent and non-violent, and the innocent passers-by.

Stuart Townsend is about to make a huge hit with Battle in Seattle.



They gave way too big a hint about the subplot for Harrelson's character in the movie. I'm not sure I understand why directors/studios do stuff like that.
