Trailer Bulletin: Clooney, Blanchett and Maguire in Soderbergh's "The Good German"

by | October 19, 2006 | Comments

The reliably eclectic Steven Soderbergh‘s next feature is a smoky, mega-noirish wartime thriller that stars George Clooney, Cate Blanchett, Tobey Maguire and Beau Bridges. And based on the brand-new trailer, it’s presently pretty high on my Wanna See list.

Plot synopsis, courtesy of WB and "Based on the novel by Joseph Kanon, "The Good German" takes place in the ruins of post-WWII Berlin, where U.S. Army war correspondent Jake Geismar (George Clooney) becomes embroiled with Lena Brandt (Cate Blanchett), a former lover whose missing husband is the object of a manhunt by both the American and Russian armies. Intrigue mounts as Jake tries to uncover the secrets Lena may be hiding in her desperation to get herself and her husband out of Berlin. Tully (Tobey Maguire), a soldier in the American army motor pool assigned to drive Jake around Berlin, has black market connections that may be Lena’s way out — or lead them all into even darker territory."

"The Good German" opens in limited release on December 8th, wider on Christmas Day, and a bit wider still on January 19th.
