Worth Watching - Feb 23: Tarsem Singh's The Fall Trailer
I really do NOT know what this is. It's probably the weirdest trailer I have ever seen. The Fall is presented by David Fincher and Spike Jonze and is directed by a guy known as Tarsem Singh, who directed that crazy movie from 2000 named The Cell. It's a strange combination of, well, I'm not sure I can explain. All you need to know is that if you're truly brave enough to watch this, then go ahead, but you've been warned - even by the end, you still might now know what it is! It's officially explains as a story about a little girl who meets a bedridden man who starts telling her a fantastical story which reflects his state of mind. As time goes by, fiction and reality start to intertwine in this "uplifting epic fantasy".
I invite anyone who can interpret what's going on to figure this out and let us know below. Unfortunately I don't think there is much we can do until someone actually sees it and is able to explain the full story from the movie. Thanks to IGN for originally posting this crazy trailer.

The Fall debuted at the Toronto Film Festival last year and was picked up by Roadside Attractions for a March 2008 limited release.
