Southland trailer!

09.20.2007

Normally I wouldn't be so excited to see a trailer of a film most critics destroyed (including our own JoBlo), but Richard Kelly has reportedly been very hard at work trying to fix the problems with SOUTHLAND TALES. After over a year of almost non-stop work, SOUTHLAND is scheduled for release this November and the trailer is upon us today courtesy of Yahoo! Movies. If you're at all familiar with SOUTHLAND as a concept, you should not be surprised that WTFness abounds in this trailer. I read the script and I'm still confused. But SOUTHLAND seems to be less of a movie in the traditional sense and more an "experience." Either you're with it or you're not.

I don't think the trailer did a particularly good job of selling the movie to non-familiar audiences other than throwing famous names at us (and spelling them wrong to boot - it's Seann William Scott, with two Ns, guys). To be fair though, regardless of what this trailer showed, I was going to see this movie anyway. Just sheer curiosity as to how Kelly was going to pull this off was getting my ass in a seat. As for you? Check out the trailer for yourself and decide...

Sorry you don't agree. My opinion has a right to itself. I know a few people that hated it for the type of film it was. But I know what planet they are from, it's called "I have an opinion" and on that planet they all have different ones. Scary huh? Not liking a movie doesn't make me wrong. And besides, I will admit that 5th Element is good for what it is, but I had problems with certain aspects.

This is what happens when you let someone with no talent do whatever they want.

Is this the great misunderstood movie? After so much negative buzz floating around it, the trailer looks really interesting and damn well put together. I'll be there.

Damn! I have heard so much negative about Southland Tales and then I finally get to see this kick-ass teaser. I don't know what to believe anymore, but I do know that I will be in the cinemas experience that wild adventure, for sure.

i dont know

I've been on the "this is going to crash and burn" train for a long time, but this trailer gave me an ounce of hope that it will retain some of the weird, outside-of-the-box ideas that Donnie had. However, I'll never understand the casting, and some of it just looks weird. Similar to the Across the Universe trailer where it starts off interesting, but then just gets all fucked up and you're just left wondering what the hell it was all about.

Looks totally F'd up! In a good way I think!

I have just about zero idea what it's about, but it looks pretty cool/weird. Anytime SMG plays a porn-star is good enough for me, besides she hasn't done ANYTHING good since "Buffy" IMO. I like Kelly's previous effort "Donnie Darko," but I didn't love it like so many others. At the very least this should be interesting, but I bet it would be lucky if this even gets a wide release and makes more than 5 mil. This flick is the definition of non-marketable to a mass audience, which might be a

Steve Martin should be ashamed of that crap, and yes so am I for watching (the 1st only) that waste of everyones time.

Been looking forward to this movie for a long time. I dig the trailer. I had no idea Jon Lovitz, Amy Poehler (sp?), and Cheri Oteri were in this! Was hoping to see Kevin Smith, but I'll just have to wait until I check this out in the theater!

Give it a chance

You know, I got the same feeling about The 5th Element, but it turned out to be good in a mediocre way. BUT! THIS MOVIE LOOKS LIKE A POTHEADS DREAM! Don't hate on it just because "the trailer sucked. boo hoo." Trailers don't make the movie. Sitting down and watching it makes the movie.

W.T.F.

Unless this theatre seat gives me a blowjob while I'm watching this, I don't think I'm going to enjoy it. Looks like a big ol mess. But yeah, I'll see it in the theatre because I love me some Kelly.

um what was that?

Even though i'm a fan of Donnie Darko this movie looks like a train wreck waiting to happen. but i'll probably rent it when it comes out on dvd. don't know if im going to see it in theatres. Then again Lost Highway doesn't make sense and i like that movie

Uhhh I don't think so

I wouldn't be interested in this movie EVEN if they took The Rock out of it. God he looks like he did a terrible job from what little they show of him actually doing anything. The bits where he is shaking his hands like he's all nervous... hahahaha, laughable. The only reason I can think of why someone would cast him in a picture like this... is to go with the rest of the top notch "talent".

NICE

Nice trailer. Donnie Darko is my favorite movie, so I'll definitely go and see this one. And probably love it.

I see The Rock and Seann William Scott, but it doesn't look like "The Rundown 2". I'm confused.

Definitely a WTF kinda movie (like Donnie Darko, only with more recognizable faces). I doubt it will make much sense to the audience, but that's not always a bad thing (sometimes it's a blessing). Now lets hope all the editing, etc. makes it all good again.

Looks Cool.

I've been hearing about this film for quite a while now. Looks pretty damn cool. Almost like there are multiple timelines occurring with the same characters. We shall see. - G
