A Stunning New Trailer for PUBLIC ENEMIES hits! CAN NOT WAIT!!!!!

Published at: April 9, 2009, 11:11 a.m. CST

Hey folks, Harry here - and here is a trailer to drool over! PUBLIC ENEMIES just looks absolutely fantastic here doesn't it? Can't wait for the trailer to be in Glorious Quicktime HD... alas - some whacked out partnership with tiny fucking video on Microsoft - well, it is slightly depressing - but I'd take this trailer however they wanted to show it to me. But hopefully soon it'll be fullscreen and perfect, eh?

Michael Mann has made this look fantastic!

    well...

    by VXXXJesterXXXV

    Well I can not view the trailer from work, but I tend to really like Michael Mann flicks so I am already interested in this. Throwing in Bale and Depp just pushes this to a must see, though I don't know if it will be in theaters or just a blind buy when the blu ray hits.

  • April 9, 2009, 11:23 a.m. CST

    Looks pretty awesome

    What kind of accent

    by Rat Fink

    was Christian Bale going for. Sound like southern creole

  • April 9, 2009, 11:24 a.m. CST

    Oh and that trailer

    by Rat Fink

    makes the movie look a lot better than the first trailer.

    by Crow3711

    I know its a true story and everything, but still, that was a really long trailer. I'm sure there is a lot more going on, but still...

  • April 9, 2009, 11:31 a.m. CST

    Awesome...10 times better than the first trailer...

    by Executor

    ...and I liked the first trailer. Looks like a cool epic period-Heat movie. Women always fuck things up in Mann-world.

    and now if been damned to hell. Sigh. This trailer reminded me of "The Untouchables", which got me thinking of DePalma's planned prequel. Did that project just die after Nic Cage bowed out or what?

    by m_reporter

    ... and the 1st trailer was amazing!

  • April 9, 2009, 11:46 a.m. CST

    would look great...

    by bluetunehead

    if it didn't look like half of it was shot with a home video camera.

    Bale's accent sounds a little...

    by SilentP

    silly. Otherwise looks good.

    Lewis Teague's The Lady In Red...

    by jimmythesaint

    ... is a great (if very inaccurate, but who cares about that?) Dillinger flick in dire need of a DVD re-release, or an SE. Really cool cast, and a dynamite John Sayles script. Hopefully some bright spark will realise this and put it out to coincide with this flick. Speaking of which, there seemed to be barely any hint of the Biograph Theater (except of one shot of Depp in a cinema), Pamela (who I believe Leelee Sobieski is playing) or Anna, "The Lady In Red" herself in the trailer. Will be interesting to see how Mann pulls off the same story. No doubt it will be interesting to compare to Teague and Sayles' film.

    Much improved trailer

    by The_Genteel_Gentile

    Deemphasizing the wide lense and handheld stuff that makes digital look like handycam. I'm there regardless, but oh how I wish Mann had gone with film, because this movie looks like it's going to be excellent. Dante Spinotti is a genius, but his work would have looked all the more brilliant if Mike had chosen celluloid.

    too bad the 360 degree shutter ruins almost every shot!

    by StovetopStuffin'

    Why does he insist on shooting with a 1/24 shutter instead of 1/48 or 1/60? It makes it look like a low budget indie film!

  • April 9, 2009, 12:35 p.m. CST

    PezQ

    by StovetopStuffin'

    digital doesn't suck, slow shutter speed sucks. Digital can look beautiful, but Michael Mann likes to use slower shutters than film can achieve, which makes it look worse. I don't know how he can look at it and think it looks good.

  • April 9, 2009, 12:43 p.m. CST

    by aikimoe

    I think Mann can look at it and think it looks good for two reasons: 1) personal taste 2) he's a highly experienced, successful, and respected film-maker.

    Hate the video quality of MM's movies now

    by Bishop6

    ..they come off as cheap student films. I don't know exactly whats lost from going to digital from Film but it just FEELS cheap, grainy, the acting seems less polished? Its like a veil has been lifted and what we're left with is 2nd rate thearte production. Anyone else feel this? Secondly, this looks just like HEAT but in the fucking 20's. Pass.

    How is it bitching if everyone knows this would obviously look better on film? You really believe this looks the best it possibly could? That's pretty foolish if you ask me. Digital works for certain things and not for certain things: I don't think it works for this at all.

  • April 9, 2009, 2:05 p.m. CST

    by CherryValance

    at the end of 2009 this isn't my favorite movie of the year. It's kinda funny that Marion Cotillard is the only one with "Academy Award Winner" before their name. And I'll bet they turn John Dillinger into the new Tony Montana. You know, thugwise.

    Love me some Michael Mann.

    by codymr

    And this looks really beautiful and the tone seems right on. Love the magnesium powder flashes at the beginning. <P> I am not sure why Mann is using digital the way he is though... especially in low lighting conditions. I have seen demos of 24P digital compared to Super 35 and digital actually won most of the time - at least if you want a clean crisp looking image. So I'm confused as to why Mann's digital cinematography looks flat?! <P> Is anyone a camera op or DP out there that can shed some light on this?

  • April 9, 2009, 3:40 p.m. CST

    by TheWaqman

    This one seems to give too much away and just isn't as powerhouse as the first one was. Also I'm still not a fan of this terrible film format he's going with. Fucking Mann's a twat these days. Still Depp looks like he's going to knock this one out of the park.

  • April 9, 2009, 5:22 p.m. CST

    DIGITAL sucks you twats....

    You show your lack of knowledge when you say

    by StovetopStuffin'

    "digital sucks". It's an over generalization that you've based on reading about Spielberg and how his editor works on film and blah blah blah. Public Enemies looks like shit because of the shutter speed he's using. Not because it's digital. Now, because he is using digital, he's able to use a shutter speed that is impossible to achieve with film. But just cause he can, doesn't mean he should. The smeariness of a shutter that is slower than 180 degrees (1/48 of a second) is what you are all seeing. and it blows.

    I'll bitch every time a director aka Zemekis decides

    by GQtaste

    to make a f'ing cartoon. That's when you'll hear me complain b/c that man is too talented to be wasting time making cartoons for adults. Mann on the other hand, has just about a perfect track record imo. Even Miami Vice and that wasn't all his fault. Jamie Foxx totally bitched out and had the ending changed b/c he is scared for his safety. "The film, shot on location in the Caribbean, South America, and South Florida, lost seven days of filming to Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, and Wilma.[6] The delays led to a budget of what some insiders claimed to be over $150 million, though Universal Studios says it cost $135 million.[2] Several crew members criticized Mann's decisions during production, which featured sudden script changes, filming in unsafe weather conditions, and choosing locations that "even the police avoid, drafting gang members to work as security."[2] Foxx was also characterized as unpleasant to work with. Foxx refused to fly commercially, forcing Universal to give him a private jet. Foxx would not participate in scenes on boats or planes. After gunshots were fired on set in the Dominican Republic on October 24, 2005, Foxx packed up and refused to return; this forced Mann to re-write the ending of the film, an ending that some crew members characterized as less dramatic than the original.[2] Foxx, who won an Academy Award after signing to do Miami Vice, was also reputed to complain about co-star Farrell's larger salary, something Foxx felt didn't reflect his new status as an Oscar winner. Foxx received an increase in salary to match Farrell's. It was also reported that Foxx demanded top billing after winning an Oscar.[2] Mann wanted a movie that was as real as it was stylish and even put Colin Farrell in jeopardy by bringing him along (with real FBI drug squads) to drug busts so Farrell could build up the character of Crockett even more." Ther is much more if you look up Miami Vice on Wikipedia.

    Fucking Mann fanboys....

    by TheWaqman

    all his movies these days boil down to is just a bunch of really pissed off people looking at each other seriously for very long shots while some Chris Cornell shit is playing in the background. Fanboys. I hope this movie doesn't have a 30 minute long staredown between Bale and Depp.

    Beginning song

    by Turnip

    Blast_Hardcheese, that song is "Black Heart" by Tucson indie band Calexico off their FEAST OF WIRE album. Amazing band. If you like moody desert-inspired music, they're the band. Mann used one of their songs on COLLATERAL as well. Hope that helps.

    LOVE the trailer HATE the Digital

    by ZoeFan

    I LOVE his films, however Mann's digital looks like refined 1970s sitcom video. You don't have to be a film major to notice it's Michael Mann Digital. I understand the reasoning behind using it in Miami Vice. But not Colateral and definately not Public Enemies. The feel just isn't right. I'm VERY interested in Mann's justification for using Digital on this film. Maybe then my mind can be changed. If anybody on this site (Harry, Mori, Merrick, Quint or whoever) interviews him, please ask him why he used Digital on this movie.

    No jo on perkele....

    by PezQ

    Ah, so it's the shutter speed is the key.. I see, yeah, i guess that makes sense, since both Benjamin button and Zodiac we're shot with digital and they looked much better than this..visually...And btw, Since when it's illegal not to like something? I don't like the look. Period. Why do people take it so personally?

    Tell you what..

    by philldwill

    ..this is Michael Mann, he made; Last of the Mohicans, Heat, and Collateral. He can use any camera he wants and it would still be a better film than all you annoying simple minded people could pull off. Digital is the next step in Movies and we all need to stop being like our Grand Parents complaining about rock music, cause it's just noise. I still watch Collateral and it's one of my Favorite looking movies ever. Not all films need to look like LOTR.

    What is the opposite of stunning?

    by thebearovingian

    And where exactly does 'stunning' fall on a scale between 'removing my will to live' and 'fucking my eyeballs'?

    High Fidelity, of course ;) Cusack was wrong though - it wasn't his girlfriend Pamela but a mutual friend of both of them, Anna Sage, who ratted him out.

    Looks great but I don't buy Depp as Dillinger

    by Dromosus

    Depp is a great actor, but I've never seen him convince as the working class, alpha male everyman that Dillinger was. Warren Oates had that kind of toughness, Depp is just way too "met-ro-sex-u-al". It's all about what Mann can achieve I guess, I certainly have more confidence in him. But I don't think I'll be able to buy Depp as Dillinger for a second, it just looks like another wild and wacky Depp turn.

    It's 1930s HEAT, but...

    by DC Films

    The characters are reversed. The vocal, extrovert cop is now the vocal, extravert criminal --- and the laconic, bottled-up criminal, now Bale's cop. Can't wait!

    Looks great

    by Stollentroll

    I especially like the beginning of the trailer. Good thing Mann's applying his visual skills to a 1930s piece. Oh, and FUCK MSN video.

    Bullshit...

    by The Eskimo

    ...It would not look better on film. The 20s-30s did not look like film. They "looked" like today, out of your eyes, and you just have an overindulgent sense of nostalgia if you're complaining about the medium.

    Unwatchable

    by landosystem

    the sound and resolution are so much crap, why even let people know about that bastardization of a great trailer?

    Prediction

    by Reckoner

    This movie will be a huge hit on top of Oscar nominations for best picture, director, actor, supporting actor, score, costume, maybe a few more. On July 1st, this movie will own your ass.

    Could be GREAT..

    by HollywoodPlant

    Saw an early screening a few months back. It ran a little long, and there wasn’t enough BALE vs DEPP dynamic. I’m a huge Michael Mann fan, so I’m deffinately going to see this on its regular release. There was enough to place it amongst his best, so here’s hoping they tightened it up.
