    Default Eastern Promises (David Cronenberg and Viggo Mortensen baby!)

    Eastern Promises Official Site

    Opening this Friday, the next collaboration between David and Viggo. 'History of Violence' was cool and this one looks damned intense too!

    Yeah this looks pretty good! I really liked History of Violence.

    He looks like a cancer patient in this movie. I totally will see it, but he doesn't look so great.

    this looks interesting. i was kind of disappointed by a history of violence. it was good for a run of the mill thriller but there wasn't enough of the cronenberg twisted weirdness.

    I'm looking forward to seeing this. Viggo is a Russian mobster? I like Naomi too. It looks interesting.

    I have to see it only b/c i love this director with a passion! I still watch A History of Violence over and over and loved eXistence and Viggo Mortenson is a really superb actor along w/ that blonde mousy girl ( loved her in Mulholland Dr. )

    I agree. I thought it was lame for a Cronenberg film. I think because it was released at a time when virtually everything else was crap, it looked good by comparison. But I don't watch many Hollywood movies so when I saw this, I was quite disappointed. I expected much more from a director of his calibre. But I will see Eastern Promises -- it looks more true to his form.

    I was sorry that viggo didn't win the oscar but I also understand he was up againt some stiff competition. I don't think he thought he was going to win either from the statements he said in interviews. I really like him as an actor. I especially like the fact that he seems to be extremely well rounded in his private life. He seems to be a very private person which now adays a refreshing quality.

    I too didn't think he looked so hot in this movie when I usally find him to be good looking in most of them. of course imo he was hot in LOTR LOL
