Woody Harrelson’s one bad MoFo in full “Rampart” trailer – AWARDS ALLEY
By Sean O’Connell
hollywoodnews.com: The unofficial word on Oren Moverman’s “Rampart” is that Woody Harrelson gives a can’t-miss performance as a corrupt L.A. police officer, the kind of turn that could catapult him once again into the Oscar conversation. Harrelson has been nominated twice before, most recently for his 2009 collaboration with Moverman on the emotionally scarring “The Messenger.”
I came back from New York late last night to find a “Rampart” screener in my mailbox (thank you, Millennium Entertainment). The distributor is doing what it can to push Harrelson – and the film – across the proper radars. I plan to watch it before the holidays, and will bring you reactions as soon as possible.
In the meantime, a new trailer for the film has hit the Web. It does an excellent job of selling Harrelson’s vicious side without spoiling too much of Moverman’s plot.
We have it below:
“Rampart” will open in New York and Los Angeles for a qualifying run on Nov. 23. It will re-open in theaters across the nation on Jan. 27, 2012. Stay tuned for more “Rampart” information in the coming weeks, as the Oscar race continues to develop.
