Trailer for Chiwetel Ejiofor's new movie "Children of Men" From Alfonso Cuaron the director of "Y tu mama tambien", based off the book by P.D. James. Also starring Clive Owen, Julianne Moore, and Michael Caine.

I love the song at the end of the trailer by Sigur Ros.

Thanks, fixed, copied and pasted the info.
Excellent stuff. I've been looking forward to this for such a long time and while it actually looks a little bit different from what I imagined, it does look great and I'm really excited for it.
Alfonso Cuaron! I'm there.
I'll check out anything with Alfonso Cuaron's name on it.
That trailer is pretty amazing, but I do wish Ejiofor had a bigger part...

Also, I thought I already posted in this thread but my post seems to have disappeared. Weird.
Great trailer which bares almost 10% resemblance to the book. I'd advise people to read the book first (which is fantastic btw) and then see the movie.
Not read the book, but it is a fantastic trailer. I will be going to see it.
Looks good! Excellent cast & director, and a good book to start with. Thanks for the heads-up.
Mmmmmmmmm.....Clive Owen....
(Gotta get that book and check it out.)
That looks amazing. Awesome cast.

Once I saw Alfonso Cuaron's Y tu mama tambien, knew I had to see anything else he did. Was a little disappointed in the third Harry Potter flick (tonally it was more interesting to me than the first two, but way too much of the book was cut despite the movie being a nice length, some other stuff was just a bit off, and the werewolf CGI was so lame), but it still looked great at least. Have yet to rent A Little Princess, Great Expectations, or any of his Mexican fare.

Don't wanna read the book for this. If I like the movie enough, I might read the book later. But I wanna give the film a fair chance to impress without getting all novel-purist on it (though I'm usually more forgiving with most adaptations of books and comics than a lot of folks).
I saw this trailer and it looked really great. I did catch a glimpse of Chiwetel and I thought that was who it was, but I wasn't sure.
I have been following this film for quite a bit. Clive and Chiwetel. Yep...its on my must see list.
I saw Cuaron's presentation at ComicCon, and I have to say, this movie looks awesome. My full report is here, just skip to the CoM part:
