New Whistleblower Trailer!!!

A new trailer for The Whistleblower surfaced online today. It's the same one that I saw attached to The Bang Bang Club last week. I'm really glad this film is finally getting some promotion - I saw it at TIFF last year and REALLY LIKED IT (review here). Rachel Weisz gives an Oscar-worthy performance as real-life whistleblower Kathy Bolkovac, who exposed a sex-trafficking operation involving all kinds of top level people. The Whistleblower is a strong and compelling debut by Canadian director Larysa Kondracki. It opens in theatres August 5th: see it, see it, see it!!!

*Also on the note of new trailers, there's a teaser for Fincher's remake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo playing with The Hangover Part II in Canadian theatres (apparently not in the US, though). It looks crazy! (Although I still have reservations that Rooney Mara can't out Lisbeth Noomi Rapace...)
