The rest of us will have to keep waiting for that apology…
But back on topic, today finds the release of a new trailer for Harrison Ford’s immigration drama, Crossing Over. Per the director, Wayne Kramer, the movie “is a multi-character canvas about immigrants of different nationalities struggling to achieve legal status in Los Angeles. The film deals with the border, document fraud, the asylum and green card process, work-site enforcement, naturalization, the office of counter terrorism and the clash of cultures.” Doesn’t that sound exciting? (The correct answer is “no.”)
Ford plays ICE agent, Max Brogan, and from the looks of the trailer, he’s part of an ensemble cast of characters who miss that touch so much, that they Crash into each other, just so they can feel something… I’ve suggested in the past that he take on more supporting roles and/or independent films, so that aspect alone intrigues me. Ford was originally set to play the Michael Douglas role in Traffic, a film that structurally at least is comparable to this one, but he dropped out last minute for unconfirmed reasons. (Although the three most popular involve money, content, and Ford’s desire to stick with mainstream action films.)
Kramer based the film on his own 1996 short of the same title, but he’s best known for The Cooler, starring William H. Macy and Maria Bello. This probably means you should expect to see at least one shot of Ford’s gray pubes.
Crossing Over will hit theaters sometime in 2009. The trailer can also be seen in High Definition over on Yahoo Movies.
What do you think of the trailer? Is the image of Indiana Jones’ grey but adventurous pubic patch stuck in your head now?
