Public Enemies Second Trailer

It was only a month ago that we debuted the first trailer for Michael Mann's Public Enemies starring Johnny Depp and Christian Bale. However, today we finally have the second trailer, which is a vast improvement over that first one, especially in terms of the visuals. The only problem is that because it comes from MSN, it's a bit low quality, but I think you'll manage to look past that, for the time being. This new trailer is lot less shiny, and a lot more grimy, and a lot more thrilling, which is exactly what I'm looking for with Public Enemies. I wasn't completely sold last time, but this trailer makes it looks just fantastic.

Watch the second trailer for Public Enemies:

[flv: 480 268]

Sorry for the low quality version, we'll get a better one up as soon as possible.

Public Enemies is directed by Michael Mann, of Heat, Ali, Collateral, and Miami Vice previously. The screenplay is based on Bryan Burrough's book of the same name and was adapted by Ronan Bennett (A Further Gesture). Later, Michael Mann and Ann Biderman (Copycat, Primal Fear) wrote a revised screenplay before shooting. The film has an all star cast made up of Johnny Depp, Christian Bale, Channing Tatum, Giovanni Ribisi, David Wenham, Leelee Sobieski, Marion Cotillard, and Billy Crudup as J. Edgar Hoover. Universal is bringing Public Enemies to theaters everywhere on July 1st this summer.

    Looks fanastic, my most anticipated film of the year, Im a huge Michael Mann film and this definitly looks like it will make up for Miami Vice.
  • Hey Ya
    Looks like the Untouchables and generally any movie based in that time frame. Nothing bad but it doesn't look outstandingly great.
  • LC
    This looks way better than that first trailer. Now... im more interested in it.
  • jh

  • Good lord yes. I hope his ranks right up there wih "Heat" and "The Insider".
  • Barry
    Looks Great, and I will watch it but does no one have a problem with the phrase "Golden Age of CRIME"
  • b
    I can dig the HD but not in period films. Looks like Wendy & Lucy with gats.
  • Tristan

  • Al

  • Django
    This trailer is an improvement on the last, which was already pretty awesome. Christian Bale's starting to crack me up, though. See: and the original at: to see why.
  • Nataly

  • joe
    the trailer looks good johnny deep will be rocking in this movie by the way Alex Billington i saw you on collider video blog hope that you would also start your video blog too bro
  • The first trailer was much better. We see more in this one, but i didnt like it so much. Johnny Depp seems fantastic, but the rest does not look so good. Why does Mann film on HD? That ruins everything man!
  • Timothy
    # 15 The movie at the beginning is Calexico,"Black Heart." I recommend buying the whole album as it's their best and that's saying quite a lot. However, I don't think the hand-held style will work for a period piece like this, so although this is better I don't think the movie will be good. At all.
  • Timothy
    # 15 The music at the beginning is Calexico's "Black Heart" off their album Feast of Wire. Buy it.
  • Rob
    looks like a fan made film
  • Nikhil Hariharan
    Even though the movie is going to be awesome, these trailers seem to be quite meh. Both of them seem to frantic and show way too much footage for us to look at and comprehend whats happening. It may seem as if im one of the few that felt these trailer were poorly edited.
  • Movieraider321
    Michael Mann is going to do it again with this fantastic film. I am extremely excited!
  • David Alan Grier
    Rob, you're an idiot.
  • penfold
    the music is by terence blanchard from spike lee's 25th hour
  • guyyl
    This looks just awful. As if it was shot with a cheap video camera. Down with HD that looks that way!!!
  • DieHard Indy Fan
    Cool Ford Tri-motor. Wonder if its the same one that showed up in Indy-Temple of Doom. There only less-than-10 of those that are flyable (ie not stuck in a museum) nowadays...
  • Cody
    Wtf are you guys talking about it looked just fine and no this isnt the fucking untouchables just cause its the 30s. God I hate people...but this looks sweet
  • Ian
    How the hell can anyone complain that Mann films in HD? Strangest complaint i've ever heard. Damn, you people are weird.
  • sorr
    hey number 3... ur a huge michael mann film? cool
  • #27 Uhh, because it is damn ugly in a movie set in the 30's? Use ''normal'' film, like Tarantino did for Inglourious Basterds. So much better, this looks just terrible.
  • Tedious Ted
    After seeing Warren Oats playing John Dillinger...still not convinced that Johnny was the best choice, acting chops or not....Gary Oldman maybe?
  • missy
    This is amazing! Why are people complaining on which trailer is better? They are both from the same movie. Oh, and stop whining about the HD -- I'm glad Mann is doing something different when it comes to period pieces. and.. #30, too late Depp is Dillinger, so stay home and watch the 73' Dillinger movie and the 5th Element.
  • nate
    #25, the movie was shot up here in Wisconsin, and all the cars wear donated by local collectors.
  • harrison
    the other song from the first trailer is ten million slaves by otis taylor kindve unsure on which one i prefer, would probably have to say the first trailer but they both get me excited for this
  • Xerxex
    Nice, loving every inch of it!
  • Nataly
  • Can't wait to see more....
  • digital.... NOOOOO
  • normf
    I'm with rocken, wtf with the digital??? I thought Mann was through with that shitty format and was finally returning to using film with this one. Looks so utterly crappy, no matter how good the subject matter is.
  • Lowwen
    Oh my gosh. I can't wait!! It made me smile when Johnny said "Woooo!" 😀
  • cine_phil
    Doesn't look bad, hope Mann keeps his style here.
  • movie buff
    first trailer was better than this one, but both trailers were so-so, the film will be good im sure. Not sure why they used that 25th Hour music towards the end of the trailer. The movie trailer is an art form unto itself, and neither one cut it for me. I agree with other people complaining about HD, its a period piece! of course it matters, it takes away from it.
  • Fisherr
    Looks alot better than the first trailer.A little more grimy indeed.
  • 9001
    Looks like a poor choice to give up wealth, fame, and freedom for a single decent-looking woman. I mean if a bank-robber wants to look for love, why won't he just go overseas or something?
  • Kal-el
    I can't believe that Christian Bale got second billing in this film. You see only just a small part of him in the trailer. Don't get me wrong I think Depp is amazing actor, but the whole trailer was about him and nothing else.
  • This new trailer sold me on it. Like you said Alex the first one I wasn't feeling but this one got me
  • Hamid Reza
    one of the best movies of the year.Don't doubt that.
