Set in northern Australia before World War II, an English aristocrat (Nicole Kidman) who inherits a sprawling ranch reluctantly pacts with a stock-man (Hugh Jackman) in order to protect her new property from a takeover plot. As the pair drive 2,000 head of cattle over unforgiving landscape, they experience the bombing of Darwin, Australia, by Japanese forces firsthand.

This is a highly anticipated film for me! It's an adventure, drama, war, western, and romantic epic all rolled into one. These are the kinds of films I live for.

NOTE: SERGIO LEONE and "THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY" fanatics: Listen closely to the music at the beginning of the trailer. The music sounds just like "Ecstasy of Gold" from "GBU." This is a direct homage to that film and of course Ennio Morricone's masterful score!!! I'm escatic right now!!!!!!

I'm certain the soundtrack used in the trailer is a snippet from the GBU soundtrack itself and not an imitation.

I'm not so sure about this movie. It looks like it doesn't know what it wants to be (Fantasy,Western, War epic) but I enjoyed Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet and will be watching this one.

Well, some of the music used in the trailer is from the film, "Henry V", so it's certain it will have an original musical score. I dunno, I think the film looks great. We shall see.

I liked Mouling Rouge very much and as much as I can remember I liked Romeo+Juliet also. I guess my sister would drag me to see it anyway, but I think I'll volunteer.

Hey, it's got western influences in it. You have to see it!

I just watched the trailer of the epic AUSTRALIA. Hugh Jackman looms out of a saloon, looks out from underneath a very FOD looking hat and squints like the man himself. Hell, there's even a snippet of "Ecstasy of Gold" in the trailer. Everyone, check it out and tell me what you think.

Looks like it could be interesting. I'll wait until the reviews come out before I decide whether or not to see it.

Just saw a tv spot for this. The soundtrack sounds like a shameless rip of the POTC main theme. Grin

Yeah, you do know that trailers and TV spots tend to recycle music from past film scores, right? If ads and previews were to be believed, half the movies Hollywood releases would feature the Crimson Tide score as their soundtrack.

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?

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. That music they use in the TV-spot I think it's from the POTC soundtrack but it's not being used in "Australia." As Groggy said, they recycle music for trailers and that's what they did here.
