Must Watch: Spike Lee's Miracle at St. Anna Trailer
If you were let down by the Punisher: War Zone trailer that just arrived, then watch this trailer for Miracle at St. Anna instead. I don't have a gripe with Spike Lee, in fact I think he's a great director, and this trailer for his latest film proves it. Miracle at St. Anna chronicles the story of four black American soldiers who are members of the US Army as part of the all-black 92nd Buffalo Soldier Division stationed in Tuscany, Italy during World War II. A few seconds into the trailer you'll start to realize that there is a lot more to this story than just that. I'm a sucker for WWII movies and this one looks absolutely incredible - both epic and emotional. With this movie, Bryan Singer's Valkyrie, and Edward Zwick's Defiance on the horizon, it looks WWII movies are going to make one hell of a comeback!

wow that looks really interesting! I didn't realize I had my volume turned up so high and the gunshot in the beginning scared the crap out of me XD

This looks really good, but I have one question: Will it have too many Christian overtones?
David on Jun 12, 2008
You know, I've never liked Lee as a person, and have only enjoyed two or three of his movies. But his continued mouth running in public all this years have increasingly turned me off. The latest, his comments about Clint Eastwood. Which, of course, turned race related. Then got even uglier when Eastwood told Lee to shut his face. Lee's response, "He's not my dad and I don't work on a plantation". Incredible. Time to get rid of the crutch Spike. As for me, I'm done with you. Jackass.

I love these kinds of films. But with Spike Lee behind the lens, it just feels a bit contrived and boring. But I hope this isn't the case. it could have a lot of potential!

"it looks WWII movies are going to make one hell of a comeback!" GOOD!! I find there's so much to be found in the context of ww2... so many stories... I could watch ww2 films all day long. Looking forward to all 3 films mentioned above! Not a bad trailer at all here.

I've got to admit, I for one am pretty sick of WW/II movies. But for the entire time of this trailer I didn't blink an eye and at the end of it all I could think or say was WOW!

this looks good, but spike lee what happen to inside man 2.

WHat's wrong with Christian values? The world could use a bit more as crazy as it's gotten. Personally I think the film looks impressive, but that's just the trailer though. I hope Spike can pull this off. It looks like it could be his best yet.

Yeah, what's wrong with Christian overtones? Got something against fantasy?

Could be good hell it will be good.

I saw this trailer in front of The Hulk last night and I have to say it immediately grabbed my attention. I like that Lee is becoming less and less boxed in by race as a dominant theme in his movies, but still finds opportunities to tell stories that feature African Americans.

Looks good but I really can't stand Spike Lee.
Ryan on Jun 13, 2008
#11, I love you! haha! Yeah Christian Values are great! Just look at what all of the Crusades accomplished...anyways, I don't agree with a lot of what Spike says, but i'm willing to give this movie a chance. Clint could kick Spike's ass any day!

Poor guy, you'll find out soon enough. Nice language homey. Can I be an athiest so I can speak like an camotes (idiot) too. You go GIRRLL! RaNkEr.
Sinner on Jun 13, 2008
christians like Sinner need to lighten up. Like with gasoline. $4 dollars well spent. God hates your name btw. He says it ranks up there with Captain Obvious.

Everyone in here needs to chill. I understand some people do not believe, and I respect your choice, but there is nothing wrong with the moral values that may be presented in the movie. They're ideals that all men can adhere to, whether they believe in a higher being or not. And our nation was partially built on the freedom of religion, not freedom from religion.
Rusty on Jun 14, 2008
OOOOOOHHHHH! THIS LOOKS LIKE THE BEST WAR MOVIE I WILL EVER SEE ........ You've seen the trailer.... I've read the book. The book is NOT very good.
GothicLiner on Jun 14, 2008
Looks good count me in, Spike has never failed me yet. Oh #14 I concur
PimpSlapStick on Jun 15, 2008
anyone know what the name of the music was in that tralier i love stuff like that.
lorenzo on Jun 18, 2008
Please, the Crusades as an anti-Christian reference point is so ignorant. Do a little research, would you please? Check out all of the stellar atheistic governments that killed millions more than the Crusades. Tens of millions more. Read about Stalin, Pol Pot, etc. and how they killed massive amounts of their own people to retain control over their anti-Christian regimes. Stick to the trailer. You won't sound so uniformed. The trailer looks fantastic. Lee has always had a wonderful visual eye. It's always great when storytellers can weave a mystery with historical events. Hope the film lives up to the trailer.

i dont support racists, fuck spike lee.
original-6ix on Jun 22, 2008
As for the trailer, I loved it. I'm going to see the movie because there are very view movies about any war with African American Actors. And as for the whole Clint Eastwood thing? Spike Lee just wanted to know why Clint didn't have any African American Actors in his war movies. In my opinion, that's a very good question. All Clint had to say was "Shut your face." Clint is 78 years old and all he had to say was "Shut your face." He has been around the block more than once and could say anything better then that. In the end, Spike was wrong and so was Clint. Trailer looks great.

Can't wait to see it. It is merely a fact that there have been many black American soldiers whose stories go untold. It is also just a fact that the hollywood movies from past to present have not represented many of those soldiers. It must feel awful to fight and die for a country that doesn't even acknowledge your existence. Everyone's story should be told if it's worth the telling wheteher you are black, white, or any of the races in between.

I hope that justice is done to Veterans in this film. Too many times it seems to be more popular to bash the establishment for the sake of political statement. Often times this detracts from the film and can destroy a good story. For fifty years now the whole "black issue" has been argued and settled. When will the time come when the story is more important than the political message the filmmaker has to beat again and again into our heads. More story, less politics!

War movie, movie with almost only African Americans: movie i'm NOT going to watch!
