The Son of No One trailer with Liotta, Binoche and Pacino

TheSonofNoOne.jpgI saw this trailer a little while ago and I came out a little confused and uninterested, it just didn't grab me, and this second showing is doing the same thing, even though it features Al Pacino, Ray Liotta, Juliette Binoche, Katie Holmes and Channing Tatum.

Directed and written by Dito Montiel who wrote the book of the same name, the film looks like it should do well, but apparently has been receiving middle of the road reviews when it showed at Sundance. Perhaps a new trailer would help things.

The Son of No One tells the story of a young policeman who is assigned to a precinct in the neighbourhood where he grew up, and you know from that statement alone there's going to be trouble. Once there an old secret comes back to life and threatens everything he's worked for, including his family. Well that's the short blurb, with the previous trailer I got a larger blurb which gives more of the story.

Son of No One follows two friends (Tatum and Morgan) forced to face the consequences of a murder they committed — and got away with — 16 years earlier. Tatum’s character Jonathan “Milk” White has gone on to a successful career with the police force and has a happy home life with his wife (Holmes) and Child. Morgan’s character Vinnie has kind of gone the other way. When Milk is assigned to the precinct where he grew up, his decade-and-a-half-old secret threatens to tear apart his life and his family.

Here's the trailer for The Son of No One is on Fandango through The Hollywood Reporter, the bonus being we're allowed to view it if we're outside the US, unlike MTV:

Well, what did you think? The cast suggests it looks good, the trailer suggests it's a strong thriller, but I just don't get the crux of the story here, I'm not sure why everyone's so concerned, all we're getting is something happened once and everyone's now all excited about it.



It's trying so hard to pull you in and to look like a powerful movie... but it fails... in this trailer at least!

I think this should rather have been a documentary called: "Some people are not meant to wear a mustache." and it would mainly feature interviews with Channing Tatum.

Haha! Very good Vash. You've got me laughing. Maybe I've approached the trailer all wrong, maybe it's a comedy?
