Worth Watching - Sept 14: First Revolutionary Road Footage

September 14, 2008
Technically speaking, this is a trailer for the upcoming film Revolutionary Road, but it's from Entertainment Tonight and it's been cut up so I can't really call it an actual trailer. It is the first footage we've seen from the film and is impressive. Revolutionary Road stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet as a young couple living together in the 1950's. For the longest time I didn't know what to expect and was worried that this wouldn't be anything great, because a film about a couple doesn't sound too interesting. But now that we've got our first look, I'm convinced that this might be pretty damn good.
Watch the first footage from Revolutionary Road:
Revolutionary Road is directed by Oscar winning director Sam Mendes, of American Beauty, Road to Perdition, and Jarhead previously. The screenplay was written by Justin Haythe, of The Clearing previously, and is based on a book of the same name written by legendary author Richard Yates. Paramount is debuting Revolutionary Road in limited theaters starting on December 26th later this year.
