Worth Watching - Feb 13: David Mamet's Redbelt Trailer
by Alex Billington
February 13, 2008
When I first heard about Redbelt with the first look photos that came out in January, I was quite intrigued. Let's look at the details: Chiwetel Ejiofor as a mixed-martial arts fighter, Tim Allen acting in a straight drama, a high concept fighting movie written and directed by a profound dramatic filmmaker, Alice Braga and Emily Mortimer as the supporting ladies, and an appearance by Randy Couture. I wasn't really sure what the heck to expect but I knew I was excited. Now we have the first trailer and I'm surprised yet again. It looks good, but I'm just not sure how good. I do know that I'll be seeing this as soon as possible and hope to report back to you on my thoughts.

We're hoping to get a bigger, better version - so check back again soon!

The film is an original script written by Mamet, who also wrote the screenplays for The Untouchables, Glengarry Glen Ross, Wag the Dog, Ronin, and Hannibal. Redbelt arrives in limited theaters starting on May 2nd.
