Worth Watching - Aug 26: Trailer for Viggo Mortensen in Good
Another new trailer for a movie we never knew existed just popped up online courtesy of Rope of Silicon. It's for a movie named Good starring Viggo Mortensen as a "good" man that is forced to join Hitler's army in Germany during WWII. It doesn't look half bad, which is definitely a good thing, but I'm not sure how it will stand up to meatier WWII films like Defiance, Valkyrie, and Quentin Tarantino's Inglorious Bastards. There are almost too many WWII movies on the horizon, but most of them look good, so as long as they hold up. Mortensen looks great as well, but I'm much more excited to see how he does in Appaloosa than this. Anyway, give it a shot yourself and check it out - maybe you'll appreciate it a lot more than I did.
Watch the trailer for Good:
Good is directed by Austrian filmmaker Vicente Amorim, of 2000 Nordestes and The Middle of the World previously. The script was written by John Wrathall (Magic Moments) and is adapted from a play by C.P. Taylor. The film will be premiering next month at the Toronto Film Festival. Good does not have a US distributor yet, but is expected to pick one up soon and head into theaters sometime in 2009.
