Clooney and Cronenberg look like they’ve got something good.
The Clooney looks bloated and populated with mediocre actors (save for Jeffrey Wright, who’s barely in the trailer). Not surprising given that terrible title. I hope the Cronenberg is better than what its trailer promises. For now it looks like a slick and “terribly important” production. I’m also praying that the Polanski transcends its material and doesn’t turn into something anemic like the adaptation of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf (and other Nichols properties). The ones that are far more impressive based on the trailers are the Garrel and To, with the To looking like a monumental work. Also, I always admire the humanity of a Hui film. Seediq Bale and the new Crialese also look very interesting.
I’m in absolute agreement, re: the Johnnie To, Nicole. Also, though I wouldn’t bet money on it, Alfredson’s spy story just might have potential.
