See Indy's son Shia in EAGLE EYE trailer

Trailer for D.J. Caruso's thriller hints that it could be a real time event movie like 24 or The Bourne Ultimatum?

So I saw this trailer last night as part of a 50 reel trailer fest that was attached to Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (more on that later) which was determined to put everyone to sleep before the damn thing begun. Anyway, the trailer kinda got lost in the shuffle between The Dark Knight and Wall-E - however what the hell trailer could live up to them awesome looking movies anyway.

From the looks of things the movie is a much more fast paced, real time thriller than I thought it would be. It almost feels like The Bourne Ultimatum in that sense or an episode of 24 - and done right those can be exciting two hours that fly by in theatres. The wrong-man caught in over his head has a nice Enemy of the State feel to it, and especially the opening Keanu Reeves sequence from The Matrix (you know... the phone calling saying he should run) but can they sustain the excitement like a Paul Greengrass directed real time movie can?

SEE IT IN WHAT YAHOO CLAIM IS HD! I'm really digging Shia LaBeouf as an actor right now, I really don't see where the hate comes from. It must be over-exposure because it's not like this kid can't act. I'm looking forward to seeing him in this and also Michelle Monaghan, Rosario Dawson who are both trailer un-seen. Billy Bob Thornton's role hopefully won't be limited to what we have seen. Eagle Eye opens September 26th (3 weeks later in the U.K.) from director D.J. Caruso - the helmer who worked with LaBeouf on Disturbia and previously directed Taking Lives.
We need more writers about Shia-LaBeouf, Rosario-Dawson, Eagle-Eye, Movie News, Trailers and Billy Bob Thornton! Get started below...
