Universal has sent over eight movie clips from director Michael Mann’s “Public Enemies” and they’re all after the jump. While I saw the film the other night I’m still under embargo, so I can’t tell you what I think….
But I don’t think I’m breaking anything when I say the HD cinematography is either going to work for you…or it won’t. For me, some of the gun battles looked amazing. But I’m still not sold on HD.
Anyway, if you don’t know the story of “Public Enemies”…Set during the Depression-era’s great crime wave, the story of the government’s attempt to stop legendary criminals John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson and Pretty Boy Floyd. This operation transformed the FBI into the first federal police force from the powerless agency it once was.
The film stars Johnny Depp, Christian Bale, Marion Cotillard, Channing Tatum and David Wenham and it’s in theaters July 1st. Watch the clips after the jump:
