The Red Band trailer for the upcoming Coen Brothers movie Burn After Reading went online today over at Apple.com. It is definitely not along the same vein as Joel and Ethan Coen’s last film, No Country for Old Men, but still looks pretty good. Here’s how the studio describes the movie, which is set to be released in September 12, 2008:
A dark spy-comedy from Academy Award winners Joel and Ethan Coen. An ousted CIA officialâ€™s (Academy Award nominee John Malkovich) memoir accidentally falls into the hands of two unwise gym employees intent on exploiting their find.
The trailer is pretty funny, in an offbeat way – what else would you expect from the Coens? Most noticeable is the fact that the movie has an absolutely killer cast, specifically George Clooney, John Malkovich, Frances McDormand, Brad Pitt and Tilda Swinton. You really can’t get much better than that unless you threw in a Meryl Streep.
