Hey, sorry I've been gone...

Stupid computer problems... Ugh...

Well anyways, not only did the Revolutionary Road trailer get released, but also Changeling and The Soloist, and only in a matter of minutes, the Doubt trailer will be released on the Apple Trailers website.

And yes, I realize that I have been a little late on this, but in case you have been living under a rock for the past 2 days and have not seen any of the trailers, here they are:

Revolutionary Road (Entertainment Tonight Preview)

I loved the little preview, hopefully there is more to the trailer when it is actually released. I think RR will be a huge contender, and though I am only in the middle of the book right now, I was like watching the trailer and pointing out some things from the book and seeing how they are adapting Richard Yates's words. I think it will be such a great movie, and I have such high expectations for this movie. I think it could get a Best Picture nomination, let alone a win, as well as getting nominations for Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, who I really hope that this time can be her time to shine! I have to admit, maybe it was just the ET preview, but I was surprised to see no Kathy Bates in the trailer at all... But I think Sam Mendes will make another masterpiece, it looks beautiful!


Angelina Jolie is a lock for a Best Actress nomination! She looks so amazing in this movie, and with all the positive reviews from the festivals!... Clint Eastwood, I can tell, has done a great job with this movie. I can't wait to see it!

The Soloist

I will admit, I was expecting a bit more from this movie, but after watching it a second time, it seemed better then when I watched it the first time. Robert Downey Jr. looks great in this movie! I really think that if the studios push him for Best Supporting Actor that he could get a nomination, and that nomination would also represent a "career nomination" as well for Tropic Thunder and Iron Man, but of course The Soloist is more "oscar-friendly." But then again, it seems as if he shares the lead spot with Jamie Foxx, but I would say that the studios should pull a Javier Bardem, who was lead with Josh Brolin in No Country For Old Men, and campaign him as supporting.

EDIT: Doubt (just released)

I have to say, maybe it's because I didn't see the play or read the script, but I didn't realize that Meryl Streep's character would be so bitchy... I'm not sure if Doubt will be a Best Picture contender, but I have to say, it seems more like an acting piece, where it may just as well get 3 or 4 nominations for acting (Streep, Hoffman, Adams, and Davis). I have to say, PSH looks good here. I actually wasn't expecting much from him, but he may surprise when the movie is released, the same goes for Amy Adams, who I love! She is just such a great actress! Hopefully she can get her second nomination!
