Burn After Reading trailer online

CoenBrothers.jpgThe Coen brothers have followed No Country for Old Men with something a bit lighter. They've gone back to comedy with Burn After Reading, a crime caper film involving some missing CIA memoirs.

We have the red band trailer for you to watch, and it looks pretty funny.

Burn After Reading has a great cast in John Malkovich, George Clooney, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand and Brad Pitt. Malkovich plays an ex CIA agent who writes some damning memoirs, only to have his estranged wife steal them, and then lose them. Pitt plays a gym trainer who finds them, and sets about blackmailing Malkovich.

You can see the trailer here, via iTunes. I reckon it looks really good, Pitt does comedy well, and I also prefer Clooney in more edgier roles. What do you think of it? How do you think it will compare to the Coen brothers other comedies?



Wow, Apple are as bad as Microsoft - I can only see the trailer if I have iTunes installed, and why should I have that installed? Where's my choice? I hope Apple Trailers isn't going to go all iTunes on us.

I had to head elsewhere and watch the flash version but it still looked good. I notice Sledge Hammer is in there too.

I'm really keen to see this now, it isn't at all what I was originally expecting.

Oh I like it! Though not a fan of him, that is the kind of Brad Pitt I'd like to see more of.

Shame on iTunes huh Richard? ;)
