For me (and people like me), one look at this fall's film slate brings lots of giddy excitement. I happen to be a big fan of the Coen Bros., Wes Anderson and P.T. Anderson -- and all three (actually, four) are debuting new films in a few months time. You Robert Redford nuts should also be on high alert, as the man has a new piece of
Oscar bait high-quality entertainment heading our way as well. A few days ago, we brought you the first video from Redford's Lions for Lambs (via Entertainment Tonight), but now our pals at Moviefone have released the first official trailer. If you've ever wondered what Tom Cruise would look like as a potential Presidential candidate, look no further -- in Lions for Lambs, he plays a Senator who finds himself involved in yet another one of those "politically-charged intertwining plot" flicks. The film also stars Meryl Streep (as a journalist), Robert Redford (as an idealistic professor), and Derek Luke and Michael Pena (as two Afghanistan-bound students). The trailer doesn't give away too much info, but it's nice to see Cruise back in a dramatic role that doesn't have him running 40mph and/or killing a bunch of bad guys with his bare hands. Lions for Lambs hits theaters on November 9; you can check out the trailer below.
