The first trailer for Redbelt, starring Chiwetel Ejiofor. The film also stars Tim Allen, Ricky Jay, Alice Braga, and Emily Mortimer, and was written and directed by David Mamet.

Looks pretty good to me.

I'm rarely, if ever, disappointed by Mamet or Ejiofor, so I'll be putting my money down to see Redbelt.
Thanks for the 'heads-up'.

Ejiofor has impressed me in every film he's been in, from those he plays supporting roles such as in Children of Men to the more prominent parts such as in Dirty Pretty Things.

I'm looking forward to Redbelt but I'm always disappointed with trailers - such as that one - that give away too much.

OK, won't watch this in that case even though i'll certainly be checking the film out, the Mamet/Ejiofor combo's a killer IMO.

I agree shinyscouser and it seems to be getting worse. Saw a few before 'Cloverfield' (one was for UK horror film 'The Cottage') and a couple of us were like "OK, pretty much seen that film already then" afterwards, even down to showing main cast members being killed FFS ?! I mean, if you know they're going to die going in to the film what's the point ?
Tim Allen + David Mamet + Chiwetel Ejiofor. I don't think I would have come up with that trifecta on my own. At least, not sober I wouldn't have.
