Eastern Promises Eric from over at "Ion Cinema" was cool enough to let us know he'd recently gotten a first look at Naomi Watts and Viggo Mortensen in director David Cronenberg's drama EASTERN PROMISES. In it, Watts stars as a midwife who takes it upon herself to investigate a Russian teenager who dies at childbirth and finds that her life is placed in extreme danger when she discovers a prostitution racket tied to a notorious crime boss (Mortensen). It's sure to pack the patented Cronenberg depravity and pathos. Get a bigger version of the right-pictured still HERE. The flick opens September 14th.

And if anyone's interested in equally promising indie fare, take a look at Cate Blanchett as Bob Dylan in director Todd Haynes' surreal biopic I'M NOT THERE over HERE, get some more Naomi Watts in director Michael Haneke's drama/thriller FUNNY GAMES right HERE and check out Julianne Moore as Barbara Daly Baekeland in Tom Kalin's drama SAVAGE GRACE over HERE.

Extra Tidbit: Steven Knight, who wrote diector Stephen Frears' excellent drama DIRTY PRETTY THINGS, wrote EASTERN PROMISES.

I loved A History of Violence, I really like Viggo Mortensen, and I ADORE Naomi Watts, so I am excited as hell for this movie.

Speaking of Cate Blanchett, for those of you who haven't seen "Hot Fuzz" yet and plan on seeing it, keep an eye out for her. I didn't realize this until taking a glance at IMDb, but she's cleverly concealed in the beginning of the movie.
