Slumdog

Of his previous work, director Danny Boyle's acclaimed new romance/drama SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE looks a bit closer in tone to MILLIONS than, say, 28 DAYS LATER. But he's the rare director who can hit the target in just about any genre.

The movie revolves around an Indian teen who goes on "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" to get the attention of the gorgeous love of his life, and ends up winning mad stacks. But then he's accused of cheating, which sucks. Though you probably wouldn't know from the new trailer, Boyle's film uses a unique structure to tell the youngster's story. Check it out below or in HD at Yahoo.

Extra Tidbit: The movie was inexplicably given an R rating by the MPAA, further showing their collective ass.

Doesn't Drop the Soap

This movie is amazing. Went to see Danny premier it at TIFF...definitely not a soapy love story. Contains lots of classic Boyle action, amazing chase scenes, etc etc etc there's gangsters and gritty interrogations and all round bad ass-ness and at the heart is a perfectly crafted love story.

The acting is definitely the best part...the kids in this movie are genius, he's got a way with the children, and not the kind of way that MJ has.

Not as good as Millions though...so close.

Danny Boyle could do no wrong in my book, and Millions is by far my favorite film of his. Since this movie shows a bit of likeness to it, I am so excited to see this film.

(I might be mistaken, but wasn't this movie supposed to be a comedy?)

Looks great. Would seem like an average soapy love story to me...

...But having Danny Boyle at the helm changes that completely for me. He can do great at pretty much any genre. He's nailed the Comedy, Horror and Sci-fi's already, I guess he figured it's time to take on Romance next...

And the MPAA rating this R is a bitch (and unsurprising) move...
