    The trailer can be found here:

    I keep hearing good things about it! This is one of many films I keep hearing getting alot of oscar consideration, Capote, Syriana, Jarhead, A History of Violence, and Brokeback Mountain are some others!

    Sony Pictures is postponing the release of "All the King's Men" -- in which Sean Penn will take on the role of fictional Southern politician Willie Stark under the direction of Steve Zaillian -- from Dec. 16 until next year. The film, which Sony had intended to push for Oscar consideration, does not have a new release date, but Jeff Blake, Sony chairman of worldwide marketing and distribution, said the film will be teed up next year at a date appropriate for awards consideration.

    Looks like its trying too hard. Very generic trailer, with every cast member listed (except poor Mark:( ) having an award blurb above their name. Does anyone else HATE that?? I don't give a damn what you've won; that has NO bearing on this performance nor is it some guarantee that the movie will be good!

    Then we get the Shawshank Redemption music which I love, but its so overused in trailers it isn't funny. Then we get Penn yelling a lot.

    I was looking forward to this film a little, but the trailer looks very forced and over the top. Oh well.
