Worth Watching - Jan 31: Mongol Teaser Trailer

January 31, 2008
Mongol is an epic tale about the early life of Genghis Khan told by Russian filmmaker Sergei Bodrov. I've heard some good things early on about this, but I'm just not sure whether it will be all that amazing. I hate to say it, but it seems like 300 with less style and more drama, and that's not too good. Either way, check out this early teaser trailer and let us know what you think so far. The photos I've seen from this lead me to believe there is much more to the story that involves Genghis Khan's personal life, but the trailer doesn't show much of that. I hope we'll get another better trailer before it's released in June.
