Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with a coupla trailers for your viewing pleasure. First up is the much anticapted film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's PHANTOM OF THE OPERA from director Joel Schumacher. No matter how many BATMAN & ROBINs he turns out, I'll always give him the benefit of the doubt because of three films he directed that I personally love. FALLING DOWN is a classic. FIGHT CLUB before FIGHT CLUB was FIGHT CLUB. THE LOST BOYS holds so much nostalgic appeal to me it's not even funny. D.C. CAB... well, it has Mr. T in his hey-day and one of the weirdest casts of any film ever... Mr. T, Bill Maher and Scarey Busey in one film?!?
Anyway, take a look at the first trailer for the musical over at Moviefone!
I don't know about you, but I kinda like it. Looks like he's going for a MOULIN ROUGE feel, which I'm not sure is going to work... But I've seen the play and really dig the music, so I'll be looking forward to seeing Schumacher's take on it.
Next up we have the newest Jerry Bruckheimer action picture called NATIONAL TREASURE starring Nicolas Cage, Helen of Troy, Sean Bean and Jon Voight. Sean Bean is one of my favorite working actors, so I'm up for seeing anything he's in. From the trailer, the film looks to be typical Bruckheimer popcorn entertainment, but if it's a fun movie to watch, then I won't have any problem with it. Check out the trailer yourself over at the official site:
