The pictures didn’t give much away about the film, but its first trailer has now arrived, via FirstShowing.net, and it gives us a much deeper look at the film without giving away too much, just a sense of how brilliant it’s going to be.
The film is written and directed by Jonathan Teplitzky, who is also attached to direct Colin Firth in The Railway Man, and along with Goode (Watchmen), it also stars Bojana Novakovic (Drag Me To Hell), Essie Davis (The Matrix Reloaded), Rachel Griffiths (TV’s Brothers & Sisters), and Kerry Fox (Bright Star). In it, Goode stars,
“as a man struggling to deal with personal tragedy and reacting wildly and recklessly to six women trying to save his life as he attempts to reconnect with his 8-year old son.”
Beginning, literally, with a crash, the trailer then moves into showing the film’s lighter side, of love and happiness, before moving into its darker tones of loss, and Goode’s seeming loss of control. But then comes another change, and we see Goode trying to set his life straight, with these words spliced between the scenes:
“The moments that change our life show us how to live it.”
And couple that inspirational sentence with the music, taken from (if I’m not mistaken) Kick-Ass’s absolutely fantastic score, and you’ve got yourself one hell of an end to a trailer. Admittedly, when you set that music to pretty much any visuals, you’ll make them seem epic. But Burning Man does look like a terrific film, and it’s something I’m really looking forward to seeing.
No word yet on when this will be coming to the UK, but keep your fingers crossed that it will be landing soon. Without further ado, here’s the brilliant first trailer for the film. The Kick-Ass music kicks in at 1:47, and things get even more awesome. Enjoy.
