Brothers Trailer

Bam! First line: "Sam's dead!" Wow, Lionsgate is really throwing everyone head first right in to the thick of this. Yahoo has debuted another new trailer for Jim Sheridan's Brothers starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire, and Natalie Portman. We featured the first trailer for this back in July, but they've now released a newer, more dramatic cut (that plays like a sequel to Obsessed) to try and persuade moviegoers to see this movie in December. There's lots of screaming in the later half, but it still looks pretty good. I'll probably see this because of the cast more than anything. I just hope it's a great movie as well. What do you guys think?

Watch the second trailer for Jim Sheridan's Brothers:

You can also watch this trailer for Brothers in High Definition on Yahoo

In a small, snowy Pennsylvania town, a young man (Jake Gyllenhaal) comforts his older brother's wife (Natalie Portman) and their children after her husband (Tobey Maguire) goes missing in Afghanistan.

Brothers is directed by Oscar nominated filmmaker Jim Sheridan, of In the Name of the Father, The Boxer, In America, and Get Rich or Die Tryin' previously. The screenplay was written by David Benioff of 25th Hour, Troy, The Kite Runner, and X-Men Origins: Wolverine previously. This is also a remake of Susanne Bier's 2004 Danish film Brødre. Lionsgate is bringing Brothers to theaters on December 4th this winter.

Really it is interesting movie ... It remind me by by a real story happen in the war of Iraq and Iran 1980 -1988 ... when an Iraqi solider was taken as Prisoner of war .... the family thought he was dead in the war ... After 16 years in 1996 Iran and Iraq changed there prisoners and he came back and non of his two children knows who is he ... and of course his wife was married to another man ... And I always think about that situation ... what the man can do ? and how he will live again ? and what will happen to him ?

Film seems promising, but damn, what a terrible trailer. Worst movie-guy voiceovers I've heard in a long time.

Shikaka on Nov 5, 2009


Trailer was bad. The previous one was better. Movie could be good. Spider-Man looks insane in this.

whomever on Nov 5, 2009


wow can someone say the entire movie was revealed within a couple of minutes

eric on Nov 5, 2009


looks really good. awful awful awful voiceover and trailer

Joey on Nov 5, 2009


This trailer looks........melodramatic. Like it wants to get a few good seats in the theaters by showing Tobey Maguire look insane. I'm sure this movie will be driven by slightly over the top yelling performances

Spiderman vs Prince Of Persia

Yousaf Khan on Nov 5, 2009

beavis on Nov 5, 2009


lol at #8 spider-man looks freaky when he is psychotic... voice-over messed it up though...agree with everyone...

zeldaprimed on Nov 5, 2009


My heart bleeds for the soldiers that we lost today at Fort Hood! War is a terrible thing that destroys so much. You and your families are in my thoughts.

jvj the Agnostic on Nov 5, 2009

Pearl Harbor 2: Back from Iraq?

Mr.Big on Nov 6, 2009


i didn't find this intense at all. it was way boring compared to the other one.

Eric on Nov 6, 2009


Horrible voice killed it for me. Looks good tho, but horrible trailer.

Barnaby Barrilla on Nov 6, 2009


I think Tobey Maguire is trying to get away from the spiderman image, this part in Brothers might do it for him, he still looks quite menacing in this film.

tir na nog on Nov 6, 2009


Tobey Maguire seems pretty intense in this trailer. Hope he can pull this off nicely. Im interested at least 🙂

coswell on Nov 6, 2009


I like how Toby already looked psychotic in his army photo.

jason on Nov 6, 2009


"I Thought My Husband Was Dead" meets "Damn, He's Not...But I Slept With His Brother"

bassbin on Nov 6, 2009


Am I the only one who thinks this movie looks really stupid?

Joe on Nov 6, 2009


Wow. Interesting cast. Not sure if some of them fit like, Natalie Portman as a mom, but... PETER PARKER! I'm in just for that.

Golgo 13 on Nov 6, 2009


Just watched the first trailer... it's WAY BETTER and actually makes me want to see the movie more now.

Golgo 13 on Nov 6, 2009


Im sorry but the little girl sure didnt seem upset when she got told her dad is flippin dead...actually she sounded cheery when she talked.

Cody on Nov 6, 2009


u wil probly check it out cause of the cast? fair point its a good cast, but it seems like it has a lot more going for it, Jim Sheridan for one thing who is a great director. Do you not agree?

geneguru on Nov 6, 2009


LOL this voice over is sooo good

Vincent Cipollone on Nov 6, 2009


Probably Tobey's best performance yet. Or well looks like it. Extremely creepy. Creepier than Lector. Maybe.

Daniel on Nov 7, 2009


this looks freaking awesome

splinter on Nov 7, 2009


Wasnt jake 2nd in line to be spider man?

wHiskey Tango... on Nov 10, 2009


Damn! Didn't expect that. Maguire looks creepy when he's mad.

arjones on Nov 11, 2009


Who do you think will win an Oscar for this? The director Jim Sheridan (he's been nominated mulitple times) or Natalie Portman as well as Jake G and Tobey M ? I have no idea they are all so good!

Julia on Nov 25, 2009


I hope they all win an oscar! Especially Tobey Maguire. He seems so intense, and his character goes through so many emotions! He really deserves it.

MadisonJane on Nov 30, 2009


I can't wait! It's almost Friday! This is going to be so legit!

Mowgli on Dec 1, 2009


Great acting by Tobey Maguire, a different kind of character than the ones he has done so far...
