The Soloist Trailer

09.11.2008

Some films just scream Oscar. THE SOLOIST, the new film by Joe Wright (ATONEMENT), starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jamie Foxx, doesn't just scream Oscar--it climbs the highest peak and shrieks it, loud and louder and loudest--for all the land to hear. The film is essentially what you get if you take RAIN MAN, MR HOLLAND'S OPUS, and SHINE, add two white-hot academy award-winning actors, toss it all in a blender and serve it up in a cold tall glass with like, three cherries, some whipped cream and an umbrella. Check out the trailer, which in itself deserves an Oscar, BELOW.

RDJ was awesome in A Scanner Darkly. Soloist looks good.

Perfect capstone for RDJ

Looks like yet another great turn by RDJ.

35MMJAY: Oh yes he has. Off the top of my head: Zodiac, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Good Night and Good Luck (granted, it was a small role), Chaplin, Less than Zero. While people may not have seen them in theaters, many have seen and come to really enjoy them on DVD.

Looks Great...

I hate Foxx's hair, its disgusting. I always wanted to the visit Walt Disney Concert Hall, but never had the chance. I live like 20 minutes away too.

The trailer gave me the chills.

PUFFCITY

So what if people love RDJ because he was in IRON MAN? He's been doing some pretty great work since he's gotten clean, and I'm glad to see that he's back on track, and doing great work. But he's never won an Academy Award, so I guess you're right, he sucks; and because he starred in a couple of hit movies and did an awesome job and lots of people liked the flicks so I guess you are right, he's horrible! Seriously, thanks for opening my eyes, man! I really appreciate it!

Psh, give me a

Psh, give me a break. RDJ rocks.

excellent

it looks really good.. i enjoy RDJ but I don't think he's the best thing since sliced bread and I haven't jumped on his bandwagon yet. Iron Man was overrated in my opinion but he did have me with TT. Good to see him turn his life and career around.

Yeah...

I kinda agree with the fact that only now is everybody jumping on the RDJ train. He really hasn't made that many good movies at all. Sure, he's awesome now, but who would really watch this movie if they didn't enjoy him in TT or Iron Man. Not I. RDJ even makes fun of actors who go the Jamie Foxx route in this movie (I know all of you have seen Tropic Thunder).

Downey has never won an Academy Award, and he did alot of wrong in his career, all this love for him is only because he starred in Ironman

RDJ is the actor of the fucking year!

I wasn't particularly interested in this film until I watched the trailer. Definitely looking to check this out now.

And to answer your question, no, RDJ can do no wrong. It's like a friend of mine said, take away the drugs and he can do some pretty damn good work. My favorite part of this trailer is when RDJ screams: "I've never loved anything as much as he loves music!"

Powerful stuff.

It's nice to see Joe Wright doing something that doesn't involve corsets and large-scale art direction. I love his movies, but it was time for him to do something different. This just might do.

This movie looks great. I'm not a huge fan of Jamie Foxx but he looks pretty great in this movie.

And, I don't want to jump on the Robert Downey Jr. bandwagon but....what the hell, he's awesome!
