Director David Fincher has made some of the best thrillers cinema has ever seen--The Game (1997), Panic Room (2002), and of course, Fight Club (1999) and the one that put him on the map Se7en (1995). After an almost 5 year hiatus since Panic Room, he is set to return with Zodiac. Based on Robert Graysmith's book about the real life Zodiac serial murders of the 60's and 70's. Graysmith (played by Jake Gyllenhaal) and his co-workers at a San Francisco newspaper help investigators as they attempt to crack the case.
The all-star cast also includes Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Edwards... Fincher has quite a knack for creating palpable tension in his movies and the latest trailer for Zodiac hints that he has done so again with this film...
Zodiac hits theaters on March 2nd, 2007
The final trailer for Rocky Balboa has also hit the net:
All I can say is--At least Burt Young as Paulie gets off some great lines...As a rabid fan of the original film--and as "cookie cutter" as the latest film seems--I couldn't help cheering a little bit upon hearing that classic theme music by Bill Conti just the same. Besides the series could go as Rocky Jr. (Milo Ventimiglia) takes over for pops (Sylvester Stallone)...Couldn't it?
Rocky's last fight is set for December 22, 2006...
Meanwhile, the Chicago Bears return to the scene of last week's win against the New York Giants later this afternoon--this time doing battle with New York Jets. Here's hoping it's a a New York sweep for the Bears.
