Does the Body of Lies trailer come with the scent of Oscar noms, or am I getting ahead of myself here? Nobody knows just yet, but with heavy-hitting stars like Leo and Russell Crowe and the dark intensity that director Ridley Scott brings to all his projects, we may be looking at a future critical darling here. Then again, I thought Scott's American Gangster would do way better at the Oscars than it did, so maybe I should just stop with the predictions for a while.
In Body of Lies, which is based on a novel by David Ignatius, "a former journalist injured in the Iraq war is hired by the CIA to track down an Al Qaeda leader in Jordan." The new trailer features things like furrowed brows and pounding music. I will be very curious to catch this when it opens in theaters October 10.
