Worth Watching - Aug 22: Alex Kendrick's Fireproof Trailer
Fireproof is your standard PG-rated relationship drama with religious undertones about a married couple working out their problems. And damnit, it looks good! The concept is fairly simple: fireman Caleb Holt can run into burning buildings and save people he doesn't even know, but he can't even save his own marriage. Sure it may be a cheesy concept, but this trailer looks like I might shed a few tears and even come out with a smile on my face by the end. So far this looks pretty much worth at least one viewing, somewhat like Ladder 49, but beyond that we have yet to see. Call me a softy, but I really enjoyed this trailer - a lot. It only turned bad when the religious aspect kicked in at full force, but beyond that, it looks solid.
