Must Watch: First Trailer for Jim Sheridan's Brothers

This is aiming for one of those five extra Best Picture nomination spots. I can already tell. The first trailer for Jim Sheridan's Brothers has finally showed up on YouTube (via The Playlist) courtesy of ET even though it's already showing in theaters in front of Public Enemies. Brothers stars Natalie Portman, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Tobey Maguire and is yet another Iraq / Afghanistan movie like every other one we've seen come and go in the last few years. Sure, it looks emotional, it looks like a tough story for many reasons, and it has a good cast, but is it going to actually be any good? We'll find out in December whether it is or not.

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.
