Nolan and Fincher talk about Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life

This short (2:25) featurette on Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life sees two of the most popular directors today — Christopher Nolan and David Fincher — discussing Terrence Malick (The Thin Red Line, Badlands) and, mostly indirectly, the director’s new film. Malick can be a bit too ponderous for some filmgoers, but I always find it interesting to see filmmakers discuss other filmmakers’ work.

The featurette also displays a bit of footage we haven’t seen in trailers yet, so it’s worth seeing in that respect, too.

Trailer Watch: Moneyball

Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill star in Capote director Bennett Miller’s somewhat fictionalized, big-screen adaptation of Michael Lewis’s book, Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game. Brad Pitt is a solid enough actor when he’s given a good script to work from, and here, the words coming from his mouth are provided by Steve Zaillian (Searching for Bobby Fischer, David Fincher’s upcoming Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), with a rewrite (or two or three) from Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, West Wing) — so, it could be good.

Moneyball opens on September 23.
