Roman Polanski’s “Carnage” trailer a must-see – AWARDS ALLEY
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Every once in a while, Hollywood manages a perfect marriage of director and material. I think we’re getting that with Roman Polanski and his adaptation of Yasmina Reza’s Tony-winning “God of Carnage.”
If you don’t laugh your ass off at this brilliant trailer, I’m not sure we can be friends:
Four incredible actors. One room. Mounting tensions and heaploads of the pitch-black humor Polanski laces through all of his films. This clip whips by with the rhythms of a stage play, yet still makes good use of its film locations. It instantly has raised my expectations for what I hope if a winning comedy-drama.
“Carnage” plays film festivals in Venice and New York. Sony Pictures Classics opens it wider in November. And I expect to be writing about all four actors – Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, John C. Reilly and Christoph Waltz – as well as the screenplay, director and film all during the awards season.
Good God of Carnage, I want to see “Carnage” now.
