First Green Zone trailer is here

Matt Damon hunts for WMDs in Iraq...

Today's trailers should be sponsored by Matt Damon, because he appears in at least two of them. This time, he's the star of Paul Greengrass' Green Zone.

The film - which see's Damon's warrant office sent out to Iraq to find supposed weapons of mass destruction stockpiled, only to discover a huge cover-up - was moved from a late 2009 release to a 2010 spot.

This first promo makes it look a lot more like a straight action drama than an awards-contending piece, but it also appears to be a gritty, driven thriller in the jittery Greengrass style.

Bourne goes to Iraq? Maybe. Still, we'll be happy to watch it whenever it arrives, so take a look at the trailer and decide for yourself...

      Hmmm I've read the book that this is based on and I use the word based in its widest possible term because that was a sort of Freakonomics/McMafia style look at the war in Iraq where as this really does look like Bourne 4. I'm not saying that's a bad thing but maybe a different lead actor/director would have been better. Hey ho I'll still go and watch it.
