Trailer: Public Enemies

The first trailer for "Public Enemies" hit the internet today and I have it for you below. The trailer gives a solid look to the overall feel to "Public Enemies," however the music used throughout does nothing but pull the viewer out of the film. The music is completely distracting, mismatched and also makes the watcher wonder what the hell it is doing in the trailer. For a period piece, one would hope the music would match the era, not so in the trailer. Let's hope that the score is unfinished, because this music has no place in the film.

If you didn't know, Michael Mann's "Public Enemies" follows the infamous bank-robber John Dillinger and the FBI's pursuit of the legendary Depression era criminal. The film stars Johnny Depp as John Dillinger and Christian Bale as the FBI's top agent Melvin Purvis. Marion Cotillard stars as Dillinger's girlfriend Billie Frechette. "Public Enemies" opens July 1st for Universal Pictures.
