Here's The US Trailer For BULLHEAD!

Published at: Feb. 3, 2012, 8:14 p.m. CST by Nordling

Nordling here.

I missed this at Fantastic Fest, and I wish I hadn't - Drafthouse Films picked this up shortly after winning Best Film at FF 2012 and it went on to be nominated for the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film.  I haven't seen it yet, but that will be remedied very very soon - this weekend, in fact - and this new trailer makes the movie look foreboding and brutal.  Everyone who saw it at Fantastic Fest loved it, calling it a more unique take on the crime genre, with a stunning performance by Mattias Schoenaerts.  It's awesome to think that Tim League has a movie nominated for an Oscar this year.  Here's the trailer:

BULLHEAD opens limited release on February 17th.  If you have an Alamo Drafthouse in your area, definitely check their listings.

Nordling, out.  Follow me on Twitter!

    Does he punch out a bull?

    by Stuntcock Mike

    Looks like a stone bummer.

    The trailer quotes "HITFLIX", not "HITFIX". Oops!

    by BadMrWonka

    That said, what a great trailer. Gives a great impression of the tone of the film, without giving anything away. I'll definitely see this one as soon as I can. Congrats to the Drafthouse!

    Looks Like It Blames Steroids

    by Dan Lalonde

    One of those movies that make like steroids make you insane.

    Michael Bay's son loves steroids, there's a surprise

    by BadMrWonka

    Probably figures his balls are already too tiny to shrink, so why not?

    This movie is AWESOME!!!

    by torontoxic

    And no it's in no way some stupid anti-steroids movie. Once you see it you'll feel silly dismissing it as something so simple. <P> This is my favourite from 2011.

    Steroids

    by 2soon2eat

    Steroids might not make you insane but they are very subtly mind altering. They have a natural high all their own that is seemingly mild, but secretly intoxicating. I am not talking about the film. Haven' seen it.

    Seen it

    by MorganLeafy

    Definitely worth checking out. I starts out slow but in the end it's a Paul Schader type epos. BTW, no steroids are not good for you.

    Steroids turn him into a pedophile?

    by IAmTommyWiseau

    Why did I chase a young kid across a field, tear off his pants and punch him in the face? It was the steroids, sir!

    If it looks like Adam Sandler on the poster

    by proevad

    I don't watch it.

    It's not steroids, people . . .

    by Nice Marmot

    . . . it's the Food of the Gods. He gets friggin' HUGE by the end . . .

    I don't like trailers giving away the whole movie

    by mr.underwater

    But I do like them to at least tell me what the movie's about, According to this trailer, Bullhead is about a guy shadowboxing and walking around. Doesn't exactly have me leaping out of my seat with $10 in hand...

    The story

    by MorganLeafy

    Well it starts as crime story about a farmer and his dealings with the hormone maffia. But then the movie shifts tone and we find out what makes the bullhead character tick.

  • Feb. 4, 2012, 2:20 p.m. CST

    Thank you morganleafy

    by mr.underwater

    That is exactly 100% more information than given in the the trailer. I mean, I understand they're trying to conceal the fact it's a foreign movie, and all. But christ, they could at least give a couple visual clues to the story without revealing the dialog isn't in english.

    Anytime I see a naked muscular man with his fists up I think of Bronson.

    by Tikidonkeypunch

    I totally thought Adam Sandler in the poster.

    Is this that movie about Freddie Mercury?

    by krabklaw

    The English translation is closer to:

    by buggerbugger

    'Micro-cock'. Easy mistake to make, I guess.
