The Fountain

I just watched the teaser trailer for The Fountain, and I felt chills running up and down my spine. The trailer doesn't give away too much, but it looks like the movie is about the 3 lifetimes of 1 man (Hugh Jackman), and how it intertwines with his 1 love (Rachel Weisz) in 3 different time settings (1500, 2006, 2500) until he reaches his ultimate destiny. The editing, music and visuals in this short trailer are incredible, and I love these themes.

It's written and directed by Darren Aronofsky (Pi, Requiem for a Dream), who's work I adore. He's the kind of writer/director whose work I anxiously wait for.

And thank god Brad Pitt is not in this film as originally intended!
