Liam Neeson, Laura Linney and Antonio Banderas star in The Other Man, a small drama-thriller about a loving husband (Neeson) who is devastated when his wife leaves him for another man (Banderas). Instead of allowing things to run their course, however, Neeson sets out to meet and get into the mind of his opposition, his obsession and rage getting the best of them. Murder may or may not ensue.
The Other Man has a well constructed trailer, with a good soundtrack and interesting setup. The first half of the movie trailer is particularly strong and intriguing. Overall, the movie looks like it could be good, and given the acting talent involved, that’s wouldn’t be much of a surprise.
However, the trailer does stumble a bit in the second half as it appears there isn’t a whole lot of material available. Like I said, it’s well constructed, but you can tell they’re grasping at straws when exciting music is set against a shot of Neeson angrily knocking chess pieces off a table. It appears that The Other Man may not be as tense as the marketing department wants us to believe.
Watch The Other Man trailer for yourself and let me know what you think.
