baz luhrmann’s australia – trailer!


hey y’all! earlier today i came across the brand new trailer for australia – the latest ‘outback epic’ film from one of my favorite directors – aussie baz luhrmann (strictly ballroom, romeo + juliet, moulin rouge! – all collectively known as ‘the red curtain trilogy’) it stars fellow aussies nicole kidman and hottie hugh jackman – based on the short trailer below – i can’t freakin’ wait! it looks like totally my type of film – sweepingly grand and romantic (like i loved ms. kidman’s 1992 film far and away with her ex-hubby tom cruise and don’t even get me started on the english patient or atonement) although unfortunately we’ll have to wait until november 14th for the film’s worldwide release :( i hope each of you are having a splendid weekend – right now mine is kind of sucking but that’s another whole long story – oh good times! popbytes over & out for now…xxoo



PS i’m still catching up on so many movies i haven’t seen – this afternoon i finally watched beowulf and i loved it!















australia is an epic and romantic action adventure, set in that country on the explosive brink of world war ii. in it, an english aristocrat (nicole kidman) travels to the faraway continent, where she meets a rough-hewn local (hugh jackman) and reluctantly agrees to join forces with him to save the land she inherited. together, they embark upon a transforming journey across hundreds of miles of the world’s most beautiful yet unforgiving terrain, only to still face the bombing of the city of darwin by the japanese forces that attacked pearl harbor. with his new film, luhrmann is painting on a vast canvas, creating a cinematic experience that brings together romance, drama, adventure and spectacle.
