Well well well, it seems the Scott family is awfully busy as of late. After a trailer for Tony Scott's Deja Vu premiered recently, we now have a chance to catch the brand spanking new trailer for brother Ridley's film, A Good Year. In a role that's very different from the warrior he played in Gladiator, Russell Crowe reunites with Scott for the first time since the two brought home five Oscars back in 2000.
Based on the novel by Peter Mayle, Crowe stars as English businessman Max Skinner. After inheriting a remote vineyard from his late uncle, Max re-locates in an effort to sell the land. However, while there, he meets a beautiful American woman who also claims to own the property. I have to admit, the trailer didn't do much for me. Guy inherits a vineyard? Discovers himself? Falls in love? While it will be interesting to watch Ridley Scott direct a film that doesn't include a sprawling climactic fight sequence, the trailer certainly did not leave me intrigued and wanting more. Of course, I never read the book and might be missing something here. If that's the case, feel free to chime in.
