Similar to today\'s movies, even the trailers for them are getting too long as domestic distributor Atlas Distribution has released a three-plus minute trailer for Werner Herzog\'s new movie
starring Nicole Kidman as historian, novelist and member of the British secret service, Gertrude Bell, who played a decisive role around 1920 in setting the course for the new political order in the Middle East.
Along with Kidman, the film co-stars Robert Pattinson, Damian Lewis and James Franco and as of right now does not have a planned release date as I expect Atlas will try and screen it at a couple of the upcoming Fall festivals before deciding where to ultimately place it.

Yeesh... that trailer was poorly made... or maybe it\'s the film... I don\'t know. Kidman comes off really wooden through most of this.
i feel like Nicole has been wooden since 2002. The Others, The Hours and Moulin Rouge were her last good performances and those were A LONG time ago.
Cold Mountain, The Interpreter, Bewitched, Australia, Trespass, The Paperboy and Stoker - all garbage. The only exception might be Margot at the Wedding. I feel like she\'s just getting roles off her name, cuz yikes, not good anymore :(
Pattinson does a passable impression of Peter O\'Toole as T.E. Lawrence.
Gertrude Bell was an amazing woman, yet her singular love affair was all on paper, here it\'s made to be romantic pap, what rubbish, and going bareheaded among arabs? Would not have happened. What about her influence with the women of the tribes, oh, it\'s all lone woman against men, pretty much designed as \'lets remake Lawrence with a woman in the role of white savior to poor arabs?\' Pattinson as Lawrence? Oh well, that casting could be worse.
The movie is not as bad as this trailer. The movie is well made, but it\'s basically all on Kidman\'s shoulders, as the other characters don\'t do much. Pattinson as T.E. Lawrence is excruciating to watch - an embarrassment.
I was interested in Herzog\'s take on a woman\'s story. And I was surprised and slightly disappointed how conventional it is. I\'d give it a C. I think it\'s interesting for Herzog fans, but that\'s it.
I see this one going straight to DVD. Nicole can\'t carry a movie anymore like she use to. Pattinson as T.E. Lawrence is a joke that role will always be Peter O\'Toole\'s. The only thing good about this movie is where it was filmed.
Is it possible for a trailer to critically bomb like a movie would? That it would be so atrocious that people would study it in how to not make a trailer? Because if so, then this must be it
