Now this is a great trailer! Now they just have to get it out in theaters in the next month and a half and in more commercials and promote it like crazy.

Hello Everyone,
Thank you Kida for that link.
It's a great preview and everyone seems to have done an excellent job.
Angelina Jolie proves very intense and Oscar worthy. And Val Kilmer, too!
Thanks again,
Larry

I really absolutely love the dialogue. So far the script sounds wonderful. There are lines that just completely gave me chills. I'm paraphrasing, of course, but here are some of my favorites:

"No one can ever be too beautiful or too powerful without disaster befalling them." - Philip

"The King lives!" - Hephaestion

"No one, not my vilest enemy has spoken to me the way you do now." - Alexander

"In my womb I carried my avenger." - Olympias

"In the end all that matters is what you've done." - Alexander (was that part of the Bagoas audition side or am I a crackhead?)

Best screenplay oscar???

MAN! As if it were possible for me to be more psyched! And even though I've seen it over and over, that face off between Bucephalus and the war elephant STILL gets me.

NOVEMBER 24th WHERE ARE YOU????

(despairs)

Agreed - it is a pretty special trailer! So much to see in it - if you play/pause it in Quicktime you see loads more, like an ageing Olympias barging out of some doors)

The most interesting thing I've noticed in the trailer is the editing - its all over the place...

For example - the one bit where you see alexander pushing someone to get into the auditorium (where i presume Philip is being assassinated) - then jump cut to him pushing someone away to get at Cleitus - and then jump cut to grabbing Cassanders face. Fathers death - companions death - his own death.

I know it will be done in flashbacks told through Ptolomy, but I'll bet anything that this is going to be a very non linear movie - and the early part of the story will run parralel to the later part.. so the details of Philips death won't be revealed until... say... Heph dies - like his death is flooding memories back to Alexander of his fathers death.... or the struggles he has with Roxanne and Heph bring back memories or the the struggles his own parents had......


anyway - just an observation ! perhaps !


Love the trailer tho - "No one, not my vilest enemy has spoken to me the way you do now." is the best line so far - he sounds so angry and yet so fragile....


Anyone reckon there might be a second version??? Wink

OK, it wasn't that great. It sounded like the actors were just yelling and nothing else.

tani, you might try listening to the words. I know it was a very dense trailer with rapid fire motion from one scene to another, but others above have given you the verbiage from the scenes. If this material is too difficult for you, I suggest you not waste your time with it. I certainly wouldn't.
