Southland Tales Update: Trailer First Week in September + New SFX Photos

August 23, 2007

Southland Tales

As always, I'll be the first to bring you every major update on Richard Kelly's Southland Tales as we finally near the film's release this November. Although it's been rather quiet since Richard made his appearance signing posters at Comic-Con in July, I've received an update from a friend who's close to Richard.

Richard has confirmed that the trailer will appear the first week of September both online and on television (not necessarily in the theaters yet). I don't however know the specific details, only that it's coming the first week. In addition to that exciting news, a few photos have appeared online that feature some of the newly finished special effects shots from the film.

I'm not exactly sure when in the movie or what all of these photos are, but I'm sure we'll see much more when we finally have a trailer. In the meantime in order to hold all of you over who are as anxious as I am, here they are for your viewing pleasure.

I'm glad that I'm not the only person who can't wait for this trailer... and of course the film itself. As for the SFX pictures.... The first group of (3)pictures are of the Mega-Zeppelin(aka "The Jenny Von Westphalen") The second group of (3)pictures are of Dwayne Johnson(aka "Boxer Santaros") standing in a downtown Los Angeles Skyscraper. The third group of (2)pictures are of.... well I'm not going to give that one away. The forth group of (2)pictures are of the Treer"Fluid Karma"Power-Plant that is stationed off the coast of the Santa Monica prier.(In the background) The fifth group are of the same, but a smaller version of the first group picuters. PS- Read the Southland Tales Graphic Novels!!! They are truely Amazing.

These pictures are pretty cool... Can't wait to see this movie for myself... on Aug 25, 2007


i hope this is going to be good and Richard can show that he is a truly great director and writer. After donnie darko many people said he was just a one hit wonder - I don't think so. this film will show whether he is worth it or not. the CGI on the last 2 pix looks dead cheap - like 80s style.

If you've seen the latest poster for the film, it just screams "ensemble". There's just gobs of bad review press for this movie since its Cannes screening, but it's since been sliced and polished. I know I'm looking forward to it. Here's the poster: -Norm S.
