Bayou Caviar Trailer

"Great warriors pray for a life of violence…" Gravitas Ventures has debuted the official trailer for an indie titled Bayou Caviar, the feature directorial debut of Oscar-winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr. Described as a "movie about money, sex, power, corruption - and somebody getting fed to alligators," this went under a few alternate working titles - Burbank Caviar and Louisiana Caviar - before ending up with Bayou Caviar officially. The plot involves a former boxing champ who decides to try to bring down an empire by setting up a sex tape scandal involving a real estate mogul. Cuba Gooding Jr. also stars in this, along with Famke Janssen, Richard Dreyfuss, Lia Marie Johnson, Katharine McPhee, Gregg Bello, Sam Thakur, and James Moses Black. This looks cool, but I'm notthat sure it's actually any good. Still worth a watch.

Here's the first official trailer for Cuba Gooding Jr.'s Bayou Caviar, direct from YouTube:

Yeah...same boat as THE_RAW. Looks pretty good or bad. Reminds of Travolta's latest movie. Trailer was pretty decent.
