Tuesday’s Top Trailer: Texas Killing Fields

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.

Texas Killing Fields – Opening October 7, 2011

I caught this trailer on IMBD’s rotating home page list, and I’m most intrigued because of the actors involved. This makes sense as a career move for Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who followed up a string of dying dad TV gigs with “Watchmen” and “The Losers.” I’m curious about Sam Worthington’s involvement, since he burst onto the scene as an action star in sci-fi fare like “Terminator: Salvation” and “Avatar,” and has lately been doing more independent dramas like “The Debt” and “Last Night.” I’m so thrilled to see Jessica Chastain in this, and it’s good to know that she has something booked on top of her four major breakout roles this year. And then we have young Chloe Moretz, who starred in two films I still haven’t seen, “Kick-Ass” and “Let Me In,” doing exactly what she should be doing with her career now, taking on another seemingly challenging part that makes her seem older than she is. The story of this looks to be dark but not quite as frightening as the title might suggest, since tit definitely seems to be a thriller rather than a horror movie. This is the kind of film that, if done right, is actually part of my favorite genre, and I’m hopeful that it does it justice and can serve as one of the fall’s most memorable offerings.
