Southland Tales trailer

I just watched the trailer for the newest film from the writer/director of Donnie Darko, Richard Kelly, titled Southland Tales, which has an extremely strange cast. I liked that he brought with him a few people he worked with in Donnie Darko (I noticed he cast Holmes Osborne and Beth Grant in both movies from the trailer alone), but the rest of the cast is very strange. It stars Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Seann William Scott, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Mandy Moore. There are also a few names you would recognize from Saturday Night Live (Amy Poehler, Jon Lovitz and Cheri Oteri), then there are some really random names, John Larroquette, Wallace Shawn and a disfigured Justin Timberlake! Hell, I might see this movie just for a deformed Justin Timberlake alone! After looking at the movie’s imdb page, it also seems that Kevin Smith is in the movie as well.

Now to the trailer itself. It’s only fitting that a movie with this strange a cast has a trailer that is equally bizarre (if not more so). It looks like this movie is set sometime in the near future and is all about the end of the world, with some crazy government organization spying on the main character, who may or may not cause that end or may even be able to prevent the whole thing in the first place (does this sound anything like Donnie Darko to you, just set in the slight future instead of the recent past?). The movie looks interesting, but it is also listed as running 2 hrs and 41 min! This is either going to be a very exciting epic about the end of the world or a drawn out goose egg.

I’m hoping for the former for Southland Tales, since I really enjoyed Donnie Darko.
