Brooklyn's Finest gets a trailer.

I like a star-filled cop drama as much as the next guy, and this looks to fit the bill. Unless I missed it, this trailer gives not a single shot of Vincent D'Onofrio or Ellen Barkin. Antoine Fuqua can do this kind of material in his sleep, and I always wonder how much better American Gangster would have been if he had tackled it as originally intended, as opposed to the impersonal, contrived, and bloated Ridley Scott version we ended up with. Richard Gere rarely fails when he actually plays his own age, and Ethan Hawke has become the go-to actor for working-class men who make terrible life choices out of desperation. Come what may, this one opens on March 25th, 2010.
