Exclusive Clip: Charlize Theron Gets Rattled in Battle in Seattle

Charlize Theron in Battle in Seattle

Hitting theaters this coming Friday is the politically charged, well-crafted drama Battle in Seattle, from first time director Stuart Townsend, who has starred in such films as Chaos Theory and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. As a director, Townsend has chosen to take a narrative approach to the city of Seattle and the tumultuous events that occurred during the meeting of the World Trade Organization in 1999. With a strong cast that includes the likes of Charlize Theron, Michelle Rodriguez, Andre Benjamin, Rade Serbedzija, Ray Liotta and Woody Harrelson, Battle in Seattle paints a grim portrait of the events from all sides.

I don’t want to say more, in fear of spoiling the fun of our own Cole Abaius, whose glowing review will be published this week, but I will say this — it’s a damn good movie, especially for a first time director. The film will hit theaters on September 19th in limited markets, potentially expanding in the coming weeks. To get you started, we’ve received a clip from one of the scenes right as the riots begin in Seattle. Here, the character of Ella shops with a friend just after finding out that she and her police officer husband, played by Woody Harrelson, are about to have a baby. Little does she know that this won’t be just any trip to The Gap…
