Agora Spanish and English trailer online

RachelWeisz.jpgThe trailer for Agora has arrived online both the Spanish and English versions, however the Spanish has no subtitles, so it's for the footage only.

The film stars Rachel Weisz as the famous philosopher Hypatia of Alexandria and her slave, played by Max Minghella, who is torn between his love for her and his possible freedom by joining the growing popularity of Christianity.

I think the trailer overplays her part in history at the start of the film, as well as what this meant for human kind. The fall of man? The fall of civilisation? Really? She was trying to unite mankind?

Ermm, do I remember that there were a few more groups of civilisation than just the Roman Empire? Just because they didn't conform to their idea of civilised, doesn't make them any less so. After all many of the things the Romans did were far from civilised.

Anyway, let me get away from those points and talk about the film Agora. With Alejandro Amenábar as co-writer and director, and Mateo Gil the other writer, you know you're in for a powerful film.

Rachel Weisz plays the famous female philosophy professor and atheist Hypatia of Alexandria, with Max Minghella playing her slave who is at a turning point between Christianity and his love for her. She taught philosophy, astronomy and mathematics until her brutal death at the hands of a Christian mob.

Here's the English trailer for Agora:

Here's the Spanish trailer:

Looks rather interesting, despite the grandeous claims of the voice over man, and another sure fire contender for Weisz, as well as something decidedly different and refreshing for film audiences.
