Vantage Point, starring Forest Whitaker, Sigourney Weaver, William Hurt, and Dennis Quaid, has a new trailer that’s playing before Michael Clayton in many theaters. Official synopsis:
With a Rashomon narrative style, the attempted assassination of the president is told from five different perspectives.
Yeah, like, Rashomon. Totally. Nice piece, man. Kurosawa, he makes mad films. Or so the Barenaked Ladies would have me believe.
From what I can gather, Vantage Point is abot the president getting assassinated, only it’s not the president, it’s a double. But then it turns out that the guys who did it knew all along! And they were only assassinating the double to create a diversion, so they could assassinate the real President! Holy crap, I need a cigarette ’cause my mind just got blown.
