Paramount Pictures has released a boatload of new movie clips for their upcoming film World Trade Center.
World Trade Center Clips
Academy Award ® -winning director Oliver Stone tells the true story of the heroic survival and rescue of two Port Authority policemen – John McLoughlin and Will Jimeno – who were trapped in the rubble of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, after they went in to help people escape. The film also follows their families as they try to find out what happened to them, as well as the rescuers who found them in the debris field and pulled them out. Their story shows how the best in people rose above the tragic events of that day.
Unlike the trailer, the clips don't show any of the horrific shots of the building coming down, but they do give you a sense of power and emotion shown in this film. I was first unsure about Nicolas Cage as John but do admit after seeing him in the trailer and now the clips I am starting to become convinced that he was the man for the role.
Another aspect to the clips worth pointing out is the music. Like the trailer, the music used in WTC uses strings to create a somber, yet powerful, mood.
