Sundance Trailers: Goliath, Bottle Shock, Downloading Nancy

I'm already out in snowy Utah (it did snow this morning) and am anxiously awaiting the Sundance Film Festival's start on Thursday. After seeing Cloverfield yesterday, I headed home and stumbled across a number of new trailers for a couple of Sundance films: Goliath (pictured above), an odd movie about a missing cat with an awesome trailer; Bottle Shock, a comedy about the early days of California wine making; and Downloading Nancy, an insane film about an unhappy wife's torturous love affair. Each has a unique trailer that I'd suggest watching to start building up your own Sundance hype.
Watch the trailer for Goliath:
Directed by David Zellner and starring David Zellner and Caroline O'Connor. Faced with a demotion, a pending divorce, and less-than-friendly neighbors, a man pins his hopes for salvation on finding his missing cat, Goliath.
Watch the trailer for Bottle Shock:
Directed by Randall Miller and starring Alan Rickman, Bill Pullman, Chris Pine, Rachael Taylor, Freddy Rodríguez, and Eliza Dushku. The story of the early days of California wine making featuring the now infamous, blind Paris wine tasting of 1976 that has come to be known as "Judgment of Paris."
Watch the trailer for Downloading Nancy:
Directed Johan Renck and starring Maria Bello, Jason Patric, Rufus Sewell, and Amy Brenneman. The tale of an unhappy wife whose online search for someone to put her out of her misery results in a torturous love affair.
Check back in during the next week or two for reviews on these three Sundance movies and many more. I'm hoping for the best with every movie I see, but who knows, something could turn out really bad. At least I've written these three down as priorities in my schedule, as they all do look pretty good.
