Yo, people, thought I’d do a little post on the soon-to-be-released movie “Australia.” I’ve included a trailer to watch. Although it’s very dramatic, the trailer doesn’t give quite enough information, in my opinion, about the plot, so I’ve included a link and a quote below. It comes to theaters in the States on November 26 (day before Thanksgiving) and stars Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman. He looks pretty awesome, buff as usual, and sporting a nice beard in lieu of the wildman hair of his Wolverine (X-men) days. [Author’s Note 19Nov: Hugh was just named People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2008.] For photos and more on the movie, click here.
Set in northern Australia before World War II, an English aristocrat who inherits a sprawling ranch reluctantly pacts with a stock-man in order to protect her new property from a takeover plot. As the pair drive 2,000 head of cattle over unforgiving landscape, they experience the bombing of Darwin, Australia, by Japanese forces firsthand. [Source: http://www.IMDB.com]
