First Trailer for Ridley Scott's American Gangster

Despite Ridley Scott's (Blade Runner, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down) flop last year with A Good Year, it looks like he may be coming back into style with his upcoming 1980's based film American Gangster. After we released the first posters for the film back in early May, the first trailer has finally debuted and is definitely worth watching. This should give you just a hint at what kind of incredible fall/winter movie season we've got coming up.

I remember back when Antoine Fuqua was going to direct this and my interested started to form. Then there was that brief time period Terry George was directing with Don Cheadle and I started getting antsy. When Scott, Washington, and Crowe came on board, I started bouncing off the wall. Now the trailer will have to keep me from losing my mind until November.

I've been looking forward to seeing this ever since I heard who was on board. I don't know what Ridley was thinking with "A Good Year" but maybe he just needed a diversion. This trailer kicks ass and it's good to see Ridley and Crowe return to form. You can't go wrong with Denzel either.

Denzel grates on me nerves like a cheese grater on skin, I can't stand the guy. However, this looks interesting enough that I will probably check it out. Ridley Scott is pretty much a golden ticket and the trailer does this movie justice. Hopefully the movie is as good as the trailer.

Denzel's intellect and skill as an actor coupled with Crowe's presence is a slam dunk!

I can't wait until "American Gangster" airs - Denzel is one of the greatest actor's we have. and coupled with the raw and talented Russell Crowe - this will definitely be a (win, win) for us all. I thought Denzel couldn't surpass his portrayal of street tough cop gone bad (Alonzo Harris) in "Training Day" - but, just seeing the trailers of "American Gangster" ( I smell another Oscar nod for Denzel). One of my all time favorite movies is "The Godfather" 1&2, and I'm sure I'll be adding American Gangster to my list of gangster movies. The doll isn't too tame for "American Gangster".

Denzel deserves his props for this movie but I wouldn't give anyone an Oscar before the movie aired. Though I do think that he's already excelled in so many other movies for which he should have already received more oscars than one. What amazes me is that he is always in character. His does not try to act like anyone else, he doesn't become anyone else in his movies. Instead, each character that he portrays becomes who Denzel is. I am rather dissapointed that the Oscar Gods haven't seen fit to recognize Denzel more than once given the number and quality of movies that he has become widely known for. This movie is appropriately brightened with a star named "The Man". Ted.

i think that the trailor looks great. denzel and crowe are both fantastic actors and they both deserve more oscars. ridley is a great producer and all his movies are fabulous. even though some people didn't like a good year, mr scott still deserves more credit for his work. he's the god of filmmaking, it doesn't get much better than that.
