Movie Preview: George Clooney in Michael Clayton

I am not embarrassed to admit that the trailer for George Clooney's upcoming thriller Michael Clayton utterly confuses me. I can see there's some kind of lawsuit and mystery going on, but that's about all I got.

Warner Bros. describes the plot thusly: "Michael Clayton (George Clooney) is an in-house 'fixer' at one of the largest corporate law firms in New York. A former criminal prosecutor, Clayton takes care of Kenner, Bach & Ledeen's dirtiest work at the behest of the firm's co-founder Marty Bach (Sydney Pollack). At U/North, meanwhile, the career of litigator Karen Crowder (Tilda Swinton) rests on the multi-million dollar settlement of a class action suit that Clayton's firm is leading to a seemingly successful conclusion. But when Kenner Bach's brilliant and guilt-ridden attorney Arthur Edens (Tom Wilkinson) sabotages the U/North case, Clayton faces the biggest challenge of his career and his life."

I'm still a little lost, so to watch the trailer and see if you can figure it out before Michael Clayton opens October 5,
