Tuesday’s Top Trailer: A Dangerous Method

Welcome to a weekly feature here at Movies with Abe, Tuesday's Top Trailer. One of my favorite parts about going to see movies is the series of trailers that airs beforehand and, more often than not, the trailer is far better than the actual film. Each week, I'll be sharing a trailer I've recently seen. Please chime in with comments on what you think of the trailer and how you think the movie is going to be.

A Dangerous Method – Opening TBD

Now this looks like a good film. I’ve seen three David Cronenberg films, two of them more of his mainstream, “Eastern Promises” and “A History of Violence,” and one of his more eccentric, offbeat pictures, “Spider.” I liked the first two and I’m not sure how I felt about the third, so this rather normative drama about a rather abnormal subject should be extremely interesting. I’m especially thrilled to see these actors getting great parts. Viggo Mortensen tends to be smartly selective about the roles he takes, and Sigmund Freud is quite a role. Michael Fassbender looks superb as Carl Jung, and I’m excited to see him take one another complex character after "Fish Tank" and "Inglourious Basterds." Keira Knightley is also going for a more serious, tragic role again after “Atonement,” and it looks like she’s going to be terrific. Vincent Cassel in a supporting role – see “Elizabeth” and “Eastern Promises” – is never a bad thing either. This story seems furiously intriguing, and it looks like it’s going to be a strong, enthralling thriller. There’s no official release date yet, at least not one I could find, but I imagine it will be out towards the end of the calendar year. I’m very much looking forward to it.
