Battle in Seattle Trailer

An international trailer has appeared for Battle in Seattle, the feature film retelling of the 1999 World Trade Organization riots in Seattle. I'm amazed - this played at both the Toronto Film Festival and SXSW Film Festival, two fests that I was at, and I somehow missed it. I'm really looking forward to it and I really don't even know why. This is the first footage I've seen from it and it makes me regret missing it even more. From the trailer alone, Martin Henderson looks like the best part, and Ray Liotta the worst - but it's an ensemble movie so I can't say for sure. This trailer is definitely worth your viewing time this fine morning, so fire it up!

Battle in Seattle currently has a 67% on Rotten Tomatoes. There are some incredibly positive reviews out there, including this one from Variety critic Dennis Harvey: "Effectively mixing original broadcast and amateur vid footage (especially during scenes of crowd panic and police brutality) with interwoven fictive strands, Townsend acquits himself well, if not outstandingly, as both writing and directing newbie." Might as well be worth checking out!

  • There are some really cool moments in the trailer, like at the end where they're chant "the whole world is watching!" I'm wondering if this really is a fantastic film that is somehow getting shoved under the carpet. Hopefully all everyone else is actually excited by this trailer as well.

    yay! more hollywood liberal propaganda!!! can't wait to see it if it's out for more than 1 weekend!!
  • Michael K.
    Liberal Propaganda you say? Sorta like-Sadaam has nuclear wapons, they will greet us as liberators, we had no idea that people would hijack planes and fly them into buildings-etc. That kind of propaganda? You fail. Back to the drawing board buck-o!

    this looks like it could be great! definitely interested.
  • I have been waiting for a trailer for this film so long!!!!!! It looks amazing and so does the cast, albeit Channing Tatum.

    Looks sensationalized but looking forward to it - I like the cast. I was working at The Egyptian Theatre at the time of the protests - we locked ourselves inside one night while some of the protesters torched our trash bins and tear gas wafted in from the gaps in the doors and windows.

    Stuart Townsend is both writer and director? It'll very interesting to see what he'll bring to the table.
  • jason_md2020
    Perhaps Stuart Townsend is pulling a Ben Affleck?
  • Gillie
    I am a huge Stuart Townsend fan. I have been waiting for this release for what seems forever. I wish he was on both sides of the camera.
