Australia trailer

05.19.2008

The epic AUSTRALIA from Baz Luhrman has gotten its first trailer, which you can check out over HERE. The film stars Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman and is set in nothern Australia on the cusp of World War II. Kidman plays an aristocrat who inherits a ranch, but is forced to join forces with a rough cattle-driver (Jackman) when cattle barons plan to take her land.

And the film looks beautiful. Say what you will about Luhrman but that bastard has an eye. Although he should also be commended for his bravery in casting Nicole Kidman; it's a pity but I don't remember the last time she starred in a movie that did well at the box-office. I've heard that at this point studios prefer to have swamp creatures headline their films. Still, she's a beautiful girl and she can act, so hopefully this will be her triumphant return to better times. It definitely looks like it could be.

Re: Music

Turns out the music (at least that in the second half of the trailer) is from Brannaugh's Henry V scored by Patrick Doyle.

WOW

As far as I am concerned these two actors can just walk around for two hours, and I'll still pay money to see that.

Kidman and Luhrmann = heaven

Looking forward to it. As for those knocking Kidman, as she has proven before in Margot At The Wedding, The Golden Compass, Fur, etc., she is probably going to be one of the best or leading things in this movie. Compared to her co-star Hugh Jackman, who apparently is a lead actor and has yet to achieve anything despite years of being cast in a leading role, I'd say NK works right ahead. "Deception" was quite an achievement, wasn't it? And that Woody Allen movie he made was also something

"Deception" was quite an achievement, wasn't it? And that Woody Allen movie he made was also something people are still talking about, right? yeah Didn't you see the crowds of people buying tickets for that. Oh, look at The Fountain but we thank heavens for the X-Men movies. And what was that awful TV musical he produced that is still showing on TV? no, oh, it's been cancelled? I wonder why.

And after making $1.3bn for the studios without much of a hit movie and leading TGC to making $371m worldwide, I daresay that the studios know what they are doing when they cast her.

Yep, Kidman uses botox and still gets paid her $15m when she demands it. You gotta love her smarts!

The Australian film industry has a lot to thank Baz Luhrman for. Like his films or not, at least he keeps his productions local. Most Aussie filmmakers are forced to go overseas, away from our shitty industry set up, so it's good to see someone stay and try to help the Australian film industry as a whole...although knowing them they'll complain that the budget is too big, so therefore it isn't truly Australian (or something ridiculous like that).

Looks very beautiful. As a Hugh Jackman fan, I'll definitely be seeing this. Still not thrilled about Nicole though. With that utterly botoxed face of hers, she is so bland.

EPIC!

I've been watching this one for a while. I've always been intrigued by Luhrman but never was too big of a fan (though Romeo + Juliet is pretty awesome). This just looks beautifully shot, epic, and man that music gave me chills. You can definitely count me in. I'm just wondering if, with such a grounded movie, it will still feature all of Luhrman's flair.

I'm such a sucker for such epic films. This one actually looks good. Definitely fulfilling the "Gone with the Wind of Australia" promise.

Wow, I had no expectations for this one and wrote it off before hand, but that trailer is pretty nice. Looks like a great old-fashioned Hollywood epic, almost like Gone With the Wind.

Music?

What's the music in this trailer? It sounds familiar, but I can't place it though it does bring out the goosebumps.
