Carnage Trailer

"The victim and the criminal are not the same!" Nothing like a couple of mature adults quibbling over petty social issues. Oh but it gets good after a few words are exchanged. Twitch has posted the first official trailer for Roman Polanski's Carnage, his adaptation of Yasmina Reza's play God of Carnage, starring John C. Reilly, Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet and Christoph Waltz. If you haven't seen the play, this trailer will catch you up quick. Two adult couples meet to discuss the fight their young children just got into, and it all eventually divulges into mayhem itself over the course of the day. This looks quite amusing. Check it out!

Watch the first official trailer for Roman Polanski's Carnage, embedded via YouTube:

From Knife in the Water to Repulsion to The Tenant, French filmmaker Roman Polanski has shown himself to be an absolute master at making the most restricted spaces come to dramatic life. In Carnage, aided by four remarkable performances, he has "reached a new pinnacle in his already extraordinary career." The screenplay for Carnage was adapted from Yasmina Reza's highly acclaimed stage play God of Carnage by both Reza and Polanski. This was shot entirely in Paris, produced by SBS Productions and Constantin Film. Sony Pictures Classics is handling US distribution, and is bringing Carnage to theaters this fall, starting November 18th. It's hitting the Venice Film Festival and opens the New York Film Fest, but not Toronto.

Don't mobile phones use some form of electricity?  And what happens when you put a live electrical device into water?

Jez on Aug 20, 2011


Haha, I wish mobile phones had that kind of charge.

Alex, since when is Roman a French filmmaker?! As far as I'm concerned, Roman Polański is Polish.
