Film Preview: A Mighty Heart (2007)

Trailers (Due to age, may no longer be available)

Posters (Due to age, may no longer be available)

Poster Rating: B-

Review: If the poster weren’t so severe in its coloring, it might be a more interesting piece. There is a simplicity I often lament is missing from poster art but this one almsot takes it to an extreme. The journalistic style of the black-and-white color is thematically appropriate, but hardly interesting.

Trailer Rating: B+

Review: Angelina Jolie looks superb in the film and there are a lot of international political and journalistic freedom arguments suggested by it. While it won’t be the kind of film to pull audiences to the multiplexes in droves, it will definitely be a movie to pull in critical and Oscar support.

Oscar Prospects:

Jolie seems destined for an Oscar nomination in this film. They will have to push hard since it has such an early release date for such contenders. If she can carry the film through to awards season and critics support it like I believe they will, we could see a strong challenger for Oscars in other categories as well.

Release Date:

June 22, 2007

Synopsis:

Anchored entirely on the amazing performance of Angelina Jolie.
