'Burn After Reading' - The New Coen Brothers Movie Trailer, feat. Elbow and Spirit

Burn After Reading, out 12 September in the USA, 17 October in the UK.




Being in a state of self-imposed internet quarantine to avoid Lost spoilers until I've managed to watch the finale, the one website I did check was /Film, which gave me the lovely surprise of the above trailer for the new Coen Brothers movie. So I figured I'd share it, coz it's bloody good. As brilliant as No Country for Old Men was, it's great to see something so completely different from the Coens, and great to see some of their regular crew back (Frances McDormand (Joel Coen's wife), George Clooney, and Richard Jenkins who was in The Man Who Wasn't There and Intolerable Cruelty, as well as Six Feet Under, which gives him a free pass in my book). Plus - I'd never have thought I'd say this five years ago, but Brad Pitt has managed to turn himself into one of my favourite actors, via Assassination of Jesse James, Babel, and the also-eagerly-awaited The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (see the pretty astonishing trailer here).

To keep this at least vaguely music-related: there are two songs featured in the trailer, both of which are REALLY GOOD. The first is the first single off the new Elbow album The Seldom Seen Kid (second appearance for Elbow recently on this blog - see also this...). I'm hoping that the presence of an Elbow track in the trailer is the only link between Burn After Reading and Southland Tales (see the trailer, featuring 'Forget Myself' as well as the Pixies' 'Wave of Mutilation', here). The second track is the first single off an album that preceded The Seldom Seen Kid by 40 years: The Family That Plays Together by Spirit, a.k.a. the band that both Led Zeppelin and Pink/Beck ripped off/sampled for 'Stairway to Heaven' (see 'Taurus') and 'Feel Good Time' (see 'Fresh Garbage') respectively.

And to tie this mess of a post all together in a pleasingly circular fashion. Remember why I found this trailer? Coz of 'LOST'. What's the name of the bald dude in that show? John Locke. And who was the keyboardist in Spirit? John Locke. Not the same guy, obviously, coz, y'know, one of them's, like, FICTIONAL. And it's not the philosopher either. Or any of the other John Lockes.
What a ker-azee world we live in, no?

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running
off the screen in Internet explorer. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I'd post
to let you know. The layout look great though!
Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Cheers

This design is incredible! You most certainly
know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your
videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
..HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
Too cool!
