With Baz Luhrmann’s “Australia” set to open next Wednesday at theaters everywhere, 20th Century Fox has provided us with 5 movie clips and 3 video featurette’s to get you ready for the movie. And what’s cool about the first clips is that it’s over 3 minutes long. Usually, a clip is under a minute, so this is a nice change of pace.
And if you’re a fan of video featurette’s, the three provided are quite interesting as they cover the locations, the cinematography and the last one shows Baz at work.
Anyway, all the clips are below the synopsis so take a look:
“Australia” is an epic and romantic action adventure, set in that country on the explosive brink of World War II. In it, an English aristocrat (Nicole Kidman) travels to the faraway continent, where she meets a rough-hewn local (Hugh Jackman) and reluctantly agrees to join forces with him to save the land she inherited. Together, they embark upon a transforming journey across hundreds of miles of the world’s most beautiful yet unforgiving terrain, only to still face the bombing of the city of Darwin by the Japanese forces that attacked Pearl Harbor. With his new film, Baz Luhrmann is painting on a vast canvas, creating a cinematic experience that brings together romance, drama, adventure and spectacle.
