Trailer Watch: The Fall; Romulus, My Father

IGN Movies has posted a trailer for The Fall, Tarsem’s follow-up to 2000’s the obnoxiously idiotic Jennifer Lopez The Cell, whose sole redeeming quality, other than looking pretty, was including a clip from Fantastic Planet. As expected, The Fall looks visually spectacular, and there may be an interesting story in there somewhere, but I’ll be damned if I can tell what it’s about from the trailer, other than a bed-ridden guy telling a little girl a story in order to get her to do a favor for him. The movie has been sitting on the shelf for over a year now, it seems: here’s a review from The Hollywood Reporter from way back in September, 2006. The film will finally get a limited release sometime this March.

This one’s been out for a while, but I’ve only just come across it: Apple Movie Trailers has the trailer for actor-turned-first-time-director Richard Roxburgh’s Romulus, My Father, starring Eric Bana and Franka Potente. Based on the memoir by Raimond Gaita, this one looks like a rather touching drama. It will begin a very small limited release on February 29, but is apparently already available on HDNet Video On Demand, according to the film’s official site. (If you’re interested, there’s more about the film at the official Australian site.)
