Trailerology: The Fountain


Exciting! Full trailer for the new Aronofsky movie coming this fall, The Fountain.

"Our bodies are prisons of our souls."

Gnosticism, anyone?... à la carte?

Alfonso Cuarón directs a sci-fi thriller about a chaotic near-future where all women are infertile, starring Clive Owen, Julianne Moore, and Michael Caine. How had I not heard of this before? Trailer.

I'll see anything with the Operative in it. ;-)

I saw that too - looks really cool. I'm glad the near future genre is being touched again. This particular theme seems especially prevalent today, and might turn a lot of heads, not only entertaining-wise, but perhaps even socially and environmentally.

Did you see the trailer for Renaissance? That was another surprise for me...

Another interesting one! It sometimes looks like it's painted over live-action, but then not.

now that looks interesting.

Whoa. You and me both!

I hate to be the pessimistic a-hole again, but god this looks stupid... if any duo can compete with the annoying ability of hugh jackman and scarlett johansen, hugh jackman and rachel weisz is it... i really can't stand watching her "act".

That's okay, you're our local curmudgeon. :-)

How do you feel about Aronofsky?

well i think pi is maybe the most overrated piece of crap out there... maybe i'm wrong but I know all i ever heard was how amazing it was, i am sure I hated it though... I haven't seen requiem for a dream but I'm still somewhat hopeful that it will be decent... i'm just hoping it isn't full of spiritual bulls*** like the fountain and isn't completely pointless like pi, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

I watched Pi to say I watched it, because in college everyone thinks sticking a needle in your head and getting a mindjob is fun.

It was rather depressing though, for me. I liked the way the movie moved though, and I always appreciate creative film-making, even if I don't like it. Pi was clever.

creative filmmaking schmeative schmilmmaking... give me something I can watch and enjoy... even if it is just steven seagal dodging machine gun fire, at least it's watchable. Pi was not.

I wasn't a fan of Pi either, but I've been meaning to rewatch it.

Pretty slick of Aronofsky to use the The Passion of Joan of Arc shot to (ostensibly) introduce travel within each millenia. However silly, I feel a special bond with a filmmaker when I know we've been impacted by many of the same films.

I'm dying to see any movie with so many exciting similarites to 2001: A Space Odyssey, one of my all-time favorties.

Looks brilliant, doesn't it?

I've been looking forward to this one for a long time.
