Must Watch: Baz Luhrmann's Australia Trailer!
The first trailer for Baz Luhrmann's Australia has just popped up out of nowhere and damn does it look incredible! The latest batch of photos we showed you gave the impression that this would be something very unique and entertaining, like all of Baz Luhrmann's movies, but I didn't expect this! I'm completely impressed by this trailer and now very excited for the arrival of this film in November. It reminds me of a western, but with an Australian touch. The intro with Nicole Kidman and the girl reminds me of The Fall as well, but there's war and much more. I encourage everyone to take a few minutes out of their day to watch this trailer - you might enjoy it way more than you were expecting!

A romantic action-adventure set in northern Australia prior to World War II, Australia centers on an English aristocrat (Kidman) who inherits a ranch the size of Maryland. When English cattle barons plot to take her land, she reluctantly joins forces with a rough-hewn cattle driver (Jackman) to drive 2000 head of cattle across hundreds of miles of the country’s most unforgiving land, only to still face the bombing of Darwin, Australia by the Japanese forces that had attacked Pearl Harbor only months earlier. With his new film, Luhrmann is painting on a vast canvas, creating a cinematic experience that brings together romance, drama, adventure and spectacle.
Australia is both co-written and directed by Australian filmmaker Baz Luhrmann of Moulin Rouge! and Romeo + Juliet previously. Other high profile screenwriters Ronald Harwood (The Pianist, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly), Stuart Beattie (Collateral, Pirates of the Caribbean, G.I. Joe), and Richard Flanagan (The Sound of One Hand Clapping) have been involved with elements of the script as well. Australia is currently set to arrive in theaters on November 26th.
