Saw the trailer for this with Prometheus today. It looks interesting, but it will probably be a video checkout for me. Unless, that is, they come out with a better preview. The tone for this, especially with the music selection, just seemed odd. Is it a thriller? Is it a drama? Is it some kind of dramedy? Is their going to be some kind of supernatural element at play (that may be stretching, I know)? I like Denzel alright, and Zemeckis is a fine director and this will no doubt have cinephiles salivating for his return to the land of live-action filmmaking after too long away, but I will have to see more of this to truly gauge my interest.

It will be very similar to movies like Forrest Gump, Cast Away and a majority of some of Tom Hanks great 90s dramas (plus Catch Me if You Can)

Which is really cool, I need a film like that again with it's balance of humor and then a pretty straight up drama at the end with a star studded cast and Denzel back in dramas is awesome. He was just wasting his talents away in terribly written action movies even though his acting is top notch still and I have a feeling Denzel will probably be one of the best actor contenders of this year, seeing how this role is far from Denzel being his tough guy self.

I just saw part of American Gangster the other day, and I was impressed with Denzel's performance there.

The feeling of this movie reminds me of, The Terminal or Up In The Air... two really good movies, and one still deserving of a Blu-ray release

I want to see this because of it's style and how I think this movie will be told... You know what happens AFTER an event, but you're just not sure what happened DURING the event I like to see how a story unravels. I bet it will be heartwarming.

Just learned about this movie. Looks really good. I love anything with Denzel Washington. Should be good and a nice change from all the action movies with Denzel.

I expect it to be fairly good, that is, if the film is more concerned about the conflict of being hailed a hero, it's basically about the dude that landed the airplane near the Hudson a few years ago, right?

Anyways, I'm sorry but me and my buddies were laughing when Denzel was flying the plane backwards, they really should have left that out of the trailer.

Some people/preachers/poets/writers/musicians do their best work, when they are drunk. And, of course, some their worst work, when they're drunk.

I love Denzel so this movie will automatically good. I've hardly ever seen a Denzel movie that wasn't at least good. Seen the trailer a while back and it does look really good.

also very happy that Zemeckis is back to doing live action again

those 3 effects heavy films he made in the 2000's weren't awful or anything, just very very mediocre

Really looking forward to this. Denzel will be great, as usual.

Is it possible that The Rolling Stones, "Gimme Shelter" might be the most over-used song in trailers?

That does not make it any less badass.
