August movie trailer

Movie Preview: August Starring Josh Hartnett (and David Bowie!)

Remember in the '90s when the World Wide Web was tied to really lofty ideals? This movie does. Josh Hartnett plays a dot-com entrepreneur who, in one scene from the trailer of August insists that this new phenomenon will increase freedom and choice. Kind of amazing to hear that stuff nowadays, huh?

As we all know, a lot of people put a lot of money into this idea and then the bubble burst. This seems to be what the film is mostly concerned with, though it's kinda hard to figure out from this trailer what the real focus will be. Is it a fast-paced look at the '90s dot-com boom and bust? Or is all that just the context in which we get to know Hartnett's character and watch him grow as a person? Or both?

I guess we'll have to wait and see. One thing I do know is that David Bowie plays an "investor" and he is awesome. The movie opens July 11th and to check it out for yourself,
