I seen the trailer too. I think they're advertising this film wrong. With that use of music, they're making it look like it's an action-comedy film when it's nothing of the sort.
Judging from trailers every Hollywood movie would be an action comedy.

I'm fully aware of that but I wasn't listening to THE POTC theme tune, it was something very similar.
Different riff.

And if that isnt the soundtrack to the movie, where is it from?

Who knows? Or cares? (Could it be some of Zimmer's score for Gladiator? A lot of that sounded very much like the POTC music.) I seriously doubt any trailer music will turn up in the finished movie. The trailer I saw used The Ecstasy of Gold - how likely is it that piece of music will turn up in the film?

I might actually get to see this on opening day, since I'm not going home for Thanksgiving until that night. I'll have to see what showtimes my theater has though.

I'm definitely seeing it opening day. I've been intrigued by this film since it was announced. Hopefully it lives up to my expectations. I was watching Oprah talk about the film and she said it was the best film she has seen in years. I'm not much of a fan of Oprah but that comment caught my ear.

Well of films currently playing/coming out within the next month, I'm interested in seeing:

Australia
Frost/Nixon
Valkyrie
Quantum of Solace

It would have been nice if a few of these titles had come out within the past few months, so I wouldn't have had to waste money on W, but I shouldn't complain too much.

I can't wait for FROST/NIXON and VALKYRIE as well.

I saw the trailer to Frost/Nixon when I went to see Changeling, it looks excellent. That's out on December 5th, and I'll be sure to see it ASAP after that. Valkyrie doesn't come out until after Christmas though, I don't think.

My interest for this has been spiraling downward quickly. I'll just have to see it and hope for the best.

Spiraling downward quickly? Why? Everyone here should be excited about this film. They just don't make them like this anymore.

I think we need to withhold statements like that until the film actually comes out, TB. The previews look awesome, but so did those for Atonement, and that was merely okay.

I'm just saying the way they made the film. They did a lot of filming on location which they don't do much of anymore. That's what I mean. I actually love "Atonement." It's gotten a lot better with repeated viewings.

I've only seen Atonement when I saw in theaters, I remember being a mite disappointed at the time - the movie doesn't quite have enough gas to be an epic but it's too slow-paced to work as a regular romance. The novel was infinitely better than the movie though, it would be interesting to see how the movie stacked up having read the book.
