A Mighty Heart

A Mighty Heart: Trailer @ Apple Trailers

I know this one isn't an upcoming movie but I ran across the trailer recently and wanted to review it for you anyway even though it came out in 2007.

In 2002 Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl was kidnapped, imprisoned, and brutally murdered by Islamic fundamentalists. The footage of Pearl's tragic death was broadcast internationally and shocked the civilized world. The even set off an string of similar assassinations in Iraq and would come to mark the brutality of the changes going on in the region.

The movie itself has a headliner in Angelina Jolie and the excellent Irrfan Khan (recently in Slumdog Millionaire, but actually able to use his acting skills in "The Namesake"). The cinematography looks solid if a bit boring at parts, but that's not really the focus since the story is bound to be an intense one. Overall it looks good, i'm going to Netflix it.
