Unsurprisingly epic, with heavy emphasis on character, visuals, set designs and music (did I hear a little of Morricone's score from The Good, The Bad & The Ugly in there?). It's the trailer for Australia, the long awaited return to the big screen of Baz Lurhmann (Romeo & Juliet, Moulin Rouge) and stars Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman in a romantic action-adventure flick set during the northern area of the country during World War II.It centers on the story of an English aristocrat (Kidman) who joins forcer with a cattle driver (Jackman) to drive her 2,000 heard of cattle across the country's unforgiving land whilst it's being bombed by the same Japanese forces who attacked Pearl Harbour some months prior. Looking pretty good, I can't honestly say I'm sold on this film yet but I did enjoy the trailer. From what I've heard the movie is nearly all a two actor show, so it's a real challenge for Kidman and Jackson to keep our interest for what will no doubt be a very long movie.
This one opens in November and will no doubt have some heavy Oscar hopes next year.
