Deep Thoughts on New Movie Trailers

Atonement is one of my absolute favorite novels of the last decade. Have Joe Wright (Dir.), Keira Knightley, Romala Garai, James McAvoy, and the other players collaborated on something even half as memorable?

Evening broke my heart. Will the adaptation be equally touching or too sappy for words? Only time will tell. But with Meryl Streep and Toni Collette on board, I'm hoping this one will be a Terms of Endearment or even a Steal Magnolias, but please, Lord, not a Mr. Holland's Opus.

And The Golden Compass took me on a fantastic adventure. Will this first film in the trilogy be the next Lord of the Rings or a Hulk of a mess?

Watch the trailers via the links above and don't forget to call your bookie! --Kim
