TRAILER: The Hurt Locker...

One of the underlooked films from this upcoming summer, at least in the mainstream movie goers eyes is Katheryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker. The number 2 film from my Summer Movie Preview for the month of June, this is the newest film from Bigelow, whose previous works include the cult hit, Point Break, and is the newest addition to the Iraq War film canon. However, unlike it's War counterparts, this one looks like it has a ton of promise, and with a film maker like Bigelow at the helm, this is one I can't wait to check out. This newest trailer simply adds to my anticipation.

The Hurt Locker depicts the bomb-defusing adventures of Staff Sergeant William James (Jeremy Renner, in what may be a career-making role) in Iraq, and the psychological toll that his job takes on him and the men around him. The film has already screened at the SXSW film festival to some great reviews. It will go into limited release on June 26, 2009, and expand wide on July 17.

Go see something good!
