Ejiofor, Roberts & Kidman in Billy Ray's 'Secret in Their Eyes' Trailer
"Re-open the case!" STX Entertainment has debuted the first official trailer for Secret in Their Eyes, a dramatic thriller about a tight-knit team of FBI investigators torn apart when they discover one of their own has been murdered. This film is sort of technically a remake or redo of the 2009 film The Secret in Their Eyes, which won the Best Foreign Language Oscar. It's actually a fantastic film that I highly recommend to anyone who hasn't seen it yet, and thankfully this looks a bit different so it's not a repeat all over again. In this version, Chiwetel Ejiofor stars with Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, Dean Norris and Michael Kelly. The performances look strong enough to make me put aside the other film, but I hope this is good.
Here's the first official trailer for Billy Ray's Secret in Their Eyes, originally from Yahoo:
A tight-knit team of FBI investigators, along with their District Attorney supervisor, is suddenly torn apart when they discover that one of their own teenage daughters has been brutally murdered. The film is a remake of Juan José Campanella's Oscar-winning 2009 film The Secret in Their Eyes, with Julia Roberts' part rewritten from male to female. "She saw the potential in there and didn’t ask [the director] to rewrite the part too terribly much in order to make it a woman. She just dove in." Secret in Their Eyes is written & directed by Billy Ray, an Oscar-nominated screenwriter and director of the films Breach and Shattered Glass previously. STX will release Secret in Their Eyes in select theaters starting November 20th this fall.

I certainly agree with you on the original film, Alex. That was a great film and deserved all the recognition and awards it garnered. I don't know about this one. From all the other stuff I've read comparing the two, this one seems like a totally different movie, so why even use the title? Another obstacle for me is Julia Roberts. I've just never liked her and I don't buy or believe her, ever, and especially her footage in this trailer. However, I do like both Kidman and Chiwetel Ejiofor a lot, so we'll see. It also seems way too emotionally manipulative to me with the daughter being brutally murdered being thrust into our faces and Roberts' obvious and understandable suffering because of it. The dumpster sequence; then the big scene of Roberts' chewing the scenery in angst! Ugh! Typical of American movies leading the audience by the nose. I resist, I tell you....I won't be manipulated...lol...

Looks pretty good. Still a little by-the-numbers, but that can be okay.

I just remembered that this remake was being made and I had to come and shake my head at it and deplore the state of cinema as a whole...
