Must Watch: First Trailer for Rian Johnson's Brothers Bloom

Right smack in the middle of Comic-Con, Summit has decided to release the first trailer for Rian Johnson's second film - The Brothers Bloom. If you're not familiar with Rian Johnson, he's the guy who brought us the fantastic indie movie Brick a few years back. I'm not even sure what's going on in this, but this looks pretty wacky. Maybe that's a good thing? Johnson's Brick was "wacky" in a mainstream sense so maybe this trailer just wasn't capturing all of the finer points. Either way, I really hope this turns out great since I loved Brick and love the cast: Adrien Brody, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel Weisz, and Rinko Kikuchi. And if you're not at Comic-Con and can decipher this trailer, please make sure to let us know. Otherwise, fire it up below and tell us if you think this will be even remotely as good as Brick or if Johnson is headed down the same troubled path as Richard Kelly.
Watch the first trailer for The Brothers Bloom:
The Brothers Bloom are the best con men in the world, swindling millionaires with complex scenarios of lust and intrigue. Now they've decided to take on one last job - showing a beautiful and eccentric heiress the time of her life with a romantic adventure that takes them around the world.
