Must Watch: Full-Length Trailer for Agora with Rachel Weisz
We just discovered the full-length trailer on the beautiful official website for Alejandro Amenábar's Agora (thanks to reader Emurion) that played at the Cannes Film Festival (read my review) and is also showing up in Toronto next month. I'm still amazed that this film hasn't been picked up by a distributor, as it's a shoo-in for a production design Oscar, or at least worthy of winning a few technical awards. If you have the chance to see it, I suggest you do, it's a fascinating story and absolutely amazing to watch, as there is so much detail in the design work. The writing is a little bit rough and it's a long, two-part story, but overall I enjoyed it.

Agora is directed by Spanish-Chilean filmmaker Alejandro Amenábar, of Open Your Eyes, Butterfly Tongues, The Others, and The Sea Inside previously. The screenplay was co-written by Amenábar and his writing partner Mateo Gil of Open Your Eyes, Vanilla Sky, and The Sea Inside previously. Amenábar wants audiences "to see, feel and smell a remote civilization as if it were as real as today," that civilization being the Egyptians of 4th Century AD. Agora is still looking for a US distributor and doesn't have a release date.
