Video: Rescue Dawn Trailer



Werner Herzog's new movie Rescue Dawn opened yesterday in LA and NYC and goes national on July 27th, but we're still all twisted up in this trailer which makes a whole helluva lot less sense than this big studio version but actually makes us want to see the movie more. It's way creepy, poses The Most Uncomfortable Movie Star Christian Bale as the alternate-reality Maverick while allowing Bale to recall some of his Empire of the Sun faces (back when he was human), inverts Fitzcarraldo (the M83 song even sounds like that movie's Popul Vuh joints) and has us kind of hoping Steve Zahn will eventually break the tension by getting hilariously kicked in the nuts by a Vietnamese child (doesn't happen in the trailer). Point being, it's classic Herzog, and we will go see it as soon as we have memorized all of Ratatouille.
