Matt Damon's 'Green Zone': Bad title, awesome trailer
I’ve never been in a war’s green zone myself, and on first blush, this title made me think of either a lame sports term or a superheroic recycling initiative. But I do know that the trailer for this au courant thriller from the boys behind the two best Bourne films, star Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass, is full of kick-ass (trailer embedded after the jump).
We’ve got Damon as an army warrant officer in a battle-vest, Amy Ryan as a hardened reporter, Greg Kinnear as a government jerkwad, Brendan Gleeson as Rambo‘s Col. Trautman (a.k.a., the dude who tells the people after an on-the-lam Damon,”You have no idea who you’re dealing with here”) — man, sign me up. Greengrass has yet to make a bad film, and Damon is rapidly becoming the only star in Hollywood who can convincingly do real-world action.
Whaddya think? Can March 10, 2010 simply not come fast enough?
