Regular readers will know of my love for [REC] which I reviewed here. The Hollywood remake Quarantine had already been announced when I saw the Spanish original and I'm seeing it later this week. From the look of the trailer they've made a carbon copy — only that night vision footage looks a little too clean and sharp to me.
I first saw Run Lola Run at the Angelika in New York and it blew my mind. Nothing director Tom Tykwer's done since has really grabbed me in quite the same way and the trailer for his latest, The International, seems to promise another slick if bland action thriller, although the idea of a bank welding so much power and influence in today's financial climate feels a little far-fetched.
