Trailer - Miracle At St Anna - A Spike Lee Joint?

Well, here it is folks - what you've been waiting for -- the trailer for Spike Lee's WWII epic, Miracle At St Anna.

With all the excitement over the last couple of weeks involving Spike, it's certainly a well-timed release.

I gotta say, I'm definitely intrigued. This looks like new territory for Spike. I thought Inside Man was new territory for him at the time, but this is unlike anything he's done before!

"Spike doing a war movie? Ok. Alright. We'll see."

There's a lot riding on this, I think, so I certainly hope it's a winner, and I'm looking forward to September 26th when it's released.

Side note: I noticed that his trademark, "A Spike Lee Joint" was missing. Or did he drop that permanently?

Thanks Sergio for the heads-up!

    YouTube seems to have pulled the plug on this link/video clip.

    So now I'm intrigued.

    Thankfully it played for me.

    Hmmm I have to say I'm a little anxious about what I saw. I don't know why but something is making me nervous about what this is going to look and feel like. It's neither a good or a bad thing. Maybe it's just me. I'm definitely going to see it though. I'll be there with bells on, hoping for the best. I do wonder if an Oscar campaign is going to be be considered for it.

    @ Wendy - hope you finally got to see it.

    @ P - Thanks for the link.

    @ Albertine - I think we're all hoping for the best. As for an Oscar campaign, it's too early to tell since all we've got is a trailer. But I'll certainly be listening and reading for any buzz.
