{Agora}

The first trailer for Alejandro Amenábar's (Abre Los Ojos, The Others, The Sea Inside) historical drama Agora recently hit the web.

Now, I'm not a big fan of these kinds of period films, but I love this director this one looks pretty promising. Agora stars Rachel Weisz as Hypatia of Alexandria and Max Minghella as her slave named Davus. The story follows Davus who turns to the rising tide of Christianity in the hopes of pursuing freedom while also falling in love with his master, the famous female philosophy professor and atheist Hypatia. Below is an early promo trailer (no dialogue yet), but it looks good so far.

Focus Features has tentatively set a December 18th release date.

{Broken Embraces}

Have I mentioned lately how much I love Pedro Almodóvar? Well, now a good a time as any because a teaser trailer for his forthcoming film Broken Embraces (Los Abrazos Rotos) has just popped up online!

Broken Embraces is written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar and re-teams the director with his muse Penelope Cruz. If you are unfamiliar with his work here are some titles to seek out: Law of Desire, High Heels, Live Flesh, All About My Mother, Talk to Her, Bad Education, and Volver.

Broken Embraces is described as a "four-way tale of amour-fou, shot in the style of '50s American film noir at its most hard-boiled, with signature Almodóvar themes such as fate, the mystery of creation, guilt, unscrupulous power, the eternal search of fathers for sons, and sons for fathers."

Broken Embraces opens in select theaters November 6th.
