My Man is a movie junkie, so it goes without saying that IMDB.com is one of our go-to web sites. Last night we were looking ahead at movies coming out this summer, and I noticed there is now a full-length trailer for Public Enemies. My Man is jonesin' for the new Terminator flick, and pretty much every woman I know can't wait to see Hugh Jackman half-nekkid in Wolverine. Me? I can't wait to see Johnny Depp as John Dillinger, Christian Bale as Melvin Purvis, and the added bonus of Billy Crudup as J. Edgar Hoover. The only thing about this movie that gives me pause is that it's directed by Michael Mann, who I personally find a little uneven as a director. He's done masterpieces (see: Heat), turned what should be good movies into ho-hum movies (see: Ali) and done outright, mind-numbing dreck (see: Miami Vice, TV show or movie - take your pick).
But it has Jonny Depp and Christian Bale - so I'm thinking it's not going to suck. Also, given the current state of the world economy, I'm thinking a movie about a Depression-era bank robber who captivated the public might be just the ticket. Release date is July 1.
