More indie trailers today! Newmarket Films has unveiled another official trailer via Yahoo for the domestic release of Peter Weir's The Way Back, his new survival film based on a true story about a group of soldiers who escaped from a Siberian gulag in 1940 and traveled over 4000 miles across some of the most dangerous terrain in the world. The film stars Colin Farrell, Jim Sturgess, Ed Harris, Mark Strong and Saoirse Ronan. We featured an international trailer last month that looked great. This new trailer is a bit different, but still has an epic feel to it. Weir's visuals look amazing and it seems like an incredible story as well. Check it out!

The Way Back is both written and directed by veteran Oscar nominated Australian filmmaker Peter Weir, of Black Rain, Gallipoli, The Year of Living Dangerously, Witness, Dead Poets Society, Green Card, Fearless, The Truman Show and Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. It's based on Slavomir Rawicz's memoir The Long Walk: The True Story of a Walk to Freedom. Its world premiere was at the Telluride Film Festival last month and it was picked up by Newmarket Films for release this winter. The Way Back arrives in limited theaters starting late December, with an expansion starting on January 21st, 2011. Interested?
Been wondering what Weir has been up too! This looks fantastic, Sturgess is getting better and better, and Harris is always a plus. Can't really say anything about Ferrell seeing as he didn't say a word, but I'm sure He'll be great, Ronan seems to be at home here as well, I'm in!

1-9: What is wrong with you? Why does everybody fall for the cheap tricks in trailers? Just because they use "epic" stupid hysterical choral score and show some helicopter-landscape imagery this doesn't have to anything worth watching!?!? Wait and see, you'll see...

---AS it comes out last week that the UN ---via Bill Gates Micro SOFT-kill 'stealth' YOU-genocide vaccines ---has 'accidentally infected some 2 BILLION with ultra-contagious, devastating, even fatal Hepatitus B------ Peter Weir is wasting precious time with the ad nauseum, pointless, anachronistic, RED China covering WWII franchise.

As Polish I know some people who survived Syberia labour-camps or were resettled by Russians to Siberia (to live in minus 40Celcius in starvation) from Eastern Poland taken by Soviets in Sep 1939 after signing a peace treaty with Hitler, accompanied by a secret protocol dividing my country into Hitler and Stalin who since that time became real friends until Hitler decided to attack Soviets in 1941. What followed later was not only such stories like the one told in this movie but also THE LARGEST EVER PLANNED MURDER OF POWs (14 000) who were shot in heads one by one without any trial in April 1940. Later after inviding Russia Germans discovered mass graves in 1943 but until communism in Easter Europe collapsed in 1990 Russia claimed it a German atrocity. This is brilliantly shown in a recent Polish film KATYN (the name of forest near Smolensk where this murder took place) - this rather dark movie is not so adventureus like above (and without Colin Farrell) but I really recomend it to anyone who likes to see what exactely Communists were able to do and to those who claims that Nasism was worse than Stalinsm. This movie was shortly shown in selected cinemas in the USA and some parts of Europe in 2008 and is available on DVD with English subtitles in every larger web-shop (like Amazon).
