Though I don't recall being slipped any drugs within the past hour {curiously looks at dog}, I sure did feel like I was on something while watching the newly-released trailer for Richard Kelly's Southland Tales (check out our exclusive poster premiere for this film here). If you're temped to blurt out a "What the ...?" go ahead and do so -- I know I was lost about 20 seconds in. There's obviously a lot going on in this film, which explains why the trailer makes absolutely no sense whatsoever, but I sure hope that changes once we sit down and watch Kelly's vision unfold on screen. If not, I'll have to kill time trying to figure out all the different tats Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson sports throughout the film. Is that a two-headed monkey riding a tricycle on his forearm? No? Well can I draw one then?

It's taken quite some time for Southland Tales to hit theaters; the film first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival two -- count em' two -- years ago, where the flick did not receive a warm welcome. Since then, Kelly's been hard at work in the editing room, cutting and trimming Southland in the hopes folks will change their opinion of it given the amount of time that has passed and work that has gone into it. Is it better? Don't know, never saw it the first time -- but the trailer definitely has me intrigued. Everyone in the cast (including Johnson, Justin Timberlake, Seann William Scott, Mandy Moore and Sarah Michelle Gellar) seem to be playing characters outside their comfort zones, which is something I'm always attracted to. As far as story goes, it takes place in Los Angeles and, as they say throughout the trailer, "This is the way the world ends." The rest? Figure it out for yourself. Southland Tales arrives in theatres on November 9.
