I have no idea how I missed it, but over the weekend Summit Entertainment released the first trailer for director Rian Johnson’s The Brothers Bloom. If you remember, Johnson was the director of Brick, a film that I absolutely loved back in 2006. It was a stellar ode to noir and John Hughes, all at the same time. Since then, Johnson has been rounding up the likes of Adrien Brody, Rachel Weisz and Mark Ruffalo to star in his new film about con artist brothers who seek to swindle a young heiress out of a few million dollars. And as you will see from the trailer below, it looks like a much lighter film than Brick, but almost equally as interesting.
The Brothers Bloom is scheduled for release on October 24, 2008. It is directed and written by Rian Johnson.
