Watch the trailer for Angelina Jolie's writing and directorial debut

Angelina Jolie recently wrote and directed a movie titled IN THE LAND OF BLOOD AND HONEY about the atrocities that took place during the Bosnian War. Let's be honest: that sentence sounds a little ridiculous. And when the title card comes up in the trailer - "From writer and director Angelina Jolie" - it's hard not to snicker just a little bit.

But why?

When you stop and think about it, is Angelina Jolie directing a movie any more ridiculous than Ben Affleck directing a movie? Now I can't speak to the quality of the movie, but the trailer is actually pretty good. It looks like it toes a fine line between really effective and really pretentious (sound like someone you know?) but it's hard to tell from just this footage.

So without getting too preachy, I guess I'm trying to say, let's be fair and give this whole "Angelina Jolie, Director" thing a chance. If it's great, good for her - another thing a rich, successful and beautiful woman is good at. If it sucks, let's meet back here and have a good, hearty laugh about the whole thing.

Looks pretty good, which shouldn't be a surprise; Jolie strikes me as an intelligent lady.

Looks great

There is more to Angelina than meets the eyes. Guess the same goes for Brad Pitt.

If it didn't come from Angelina Jolie, I'd say it looked pretty damn good. Knowing it comes from Angelina Jolie I couldn't help but get an Entourage vibe from it along the lines of "really expensive fake movie". So at once impressive and silly.

Very nice...

Love Angelina and it looks like she could have a great directorial debut here. Really excited for it. And I'm sure she's sorry she can't live up to your standards schwarzgeršt.

I think this could be good, so long as it doesn't get too bogged down with the Big Picture.

Wait... what? Angelina Jolie had enough strength to pick up a pen? I find that hard to believe.
But then again, maybe she went with dictation?
