New Trailer: Changeling

Attention everybody, potential Oscar winner right here! In addition to being a great actor, Clint Eastwood (Letters From Iwo Jima) is one of the best directors working today, and you can tell he’s done it again just by seeing this trailer.

Even though it didn’t win the top prize, Changeling was one of the most talked about films at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. It is based on the true story of the Wineville Chicken Murders in the late twenties and the scandal which surrounded the LAPD following their poor handling of the case.

Versatile author J. Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5) wrote the film, which stars Angelina Jolie (Wanted), John Malkovich (Beowulf) and Amy Ryan (Dan In Real Life), among others. The highly anticipated film will be released in the US late in October, and most other countries by January 2009.
