Movie Preview: The Coen Brothers' Burn After Reading

Movie Preview: The Coen Brothers' Burn After Reading

OK, now this is a movie trailer! The Coen Bros. latest venture, Burn After Reading, now has a red-band trailer (which in this case means they're using some NSFW language) and it is funny-goofy-weird-dark. Which is to say, awesome. The people in this movie are so fantastically talented, and combined with the Coens' dark and bizarre direction, this movie looks totally promising.

The trailer is a little confusing, but the IMDB plot description puts it like this: "A disk containing the memoirs of a CIA agent ends up in the hands of two unscrupulous gym employees who attempt to sell it."

I could watch Brad Pitt act like a total goofball all day.

Burn After Reading opens in theaters September 12. To check out the trailer and tell me if you think there are more Oscars in the Coen family future,

I have heard that Clooney is a hit man brought in to clean up the problem but is sleeping with Cox's wife (Swanson) but then falls for McDormand.

Genius. Catchy title/storyline and I'm sure the Coen brothers have another huge hit on their hands. That said, I would probably go see this cast read the phone book aloud.

This is quite promising! I've been looking forward to this release since stumbling across on-set pics somewhere in cyberspace of Malcovich chasing Pitt with an ax.
