After giving an exclusive yesterday, Paramount Pictures has now released streaming feeds -- in three formats -- for Oliver Stone's 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.
Not too much I can say about the clips that I hadn't said yesterday. The number one aspect that still impresses me is the power to the film's score; which, I'd assume will help bring tears to moviegoers eyes. One small aspect I forgot to point out on the film is the camera's ability to look at the characters in the face in order to get a sense of fear and emotion. This was one of the defining aspects to Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings and I can't think of a better film to see this same technique used in.
Paramount released the clips in Windows Media, Real Media and Quicktime format. Because I still hate the Real Media format, and the player for that matter, we have logged the Windows Media and Quicktime feeds in the film's database (click below).
World Trade Center will open to theatres on August 9th.
