Worth Watching - July 29: Baader Meinhof Complex Trailer
Last year we featured a trailer for a German film called Der Baader Meinhof Komplex. It later went on to become nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar even though it still hasn't officially hit US theaters. Vitagraph Films is now bringing The Baader Meinhof Complex to theaters and has debuted an official US trailer (and poster) for the film over on Cinematical. This looks pretty incredible and considering it was good enough to get an Oscar nomination, I'm definitely interested in checking it out. Plus, any trailer that uses The Who's "My Generation" in a great way just deserves some props anyway. Watch this trailer!
Watch the official US trailer for The Baader Meinhof Complex:
The Baader Meinhof Complex, aka Der Baader Meinhof Komplex, is directed by German filmmaker Uli Edel, of numerous German made-for-TV movies as well as Last Exit to Brooklyn and The Little Vampire. The screenplay was written by Hollywood producer Bernd Eichinger, of The Downfall and Perfume: The Story of a Murderer previously, and is based on Stefan Aust's book of the same name. The Baader Meinhof Complex, which was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Oscar this year, is being distributed in the US by Vitagraph Films. It's expected to arrive in very limited theaters starting on August 21st later this year.
