Brad Pitt's

Check out the new trailer for Burn After Reading, featuring Brad Pitt and the newly single George Clooney.

Plot summer via Wiki: John Malkovich plays Ozzie Cox, a CIA vet who is fired because he is an alcoholic. He takes his revenge by writing some inflammatory memoirs. Cox’s soon-to-be ex-wife Katie (Tilda Swinton) steals the disc containing his memoirs and accidentally leaves it at the gym where it is found by a trainer, Chad Feldheimer (Pitt) and the gym’s owner, Linda Litzke (Frances McDormand). They believe they can use the info to blackmail Cox. Harry Pfarrer (Clooney) is an oversexed, fanatically fit, lactose-intolerant federal marshal who is sleeping with Cox’s wife. He meets Linda via an online dating service and gets entangled in the blackmail scheme, when he stumbles across Chad breaking into his and Katie’s house.

Burn After Reading is due to premiere on August 27 and will open the 2008 Venice Film Festival. The film is the Coen brothers’ first since the Academy Award-winning No Country For Old Men. Watch the trailer below!

  • wow

    I’m sorry. As beautiful as he may be, he can’t act. Or pull off comedy for that much.

    Movie after movie, it’s pretty much the same tone, the same voice, the same expressions.

  • Frenchy

    Funny funny..He plays this know it all gym rat who is a punk and thinks he can outswindle CIA. It;s funny because brad doesn’t usually get into physical comedy too much.

  • Shar

    The only thing i don’t like about this trailer is the Vanilla Ice’s hairstyle, ugh!! But Brad’s acting reminds me of his other role in my fav movie “Fight Club” that movie got me in trouble many times with how many O… i had, :)

  • xoxo

  • passing Through

    When it rains it pours…No news for several days…now we’ve had 5 threads in one day…

    I watched the trailer yesterday and the movie looks hilarious. Brad definitely gets to let it all hang out…so to speak…

  • film fan

    OK Now I get this movie. Should be funny but not regular funny. More like Coen brothers funny, which iis crazy.

  • film fan


  • suzy86

    it’s nice to see Brad Pitt do a “fun” less serious type of movie

  • crème de la crème

    Great trailer! Looking forward to watch it!

    More blessings to the Jolie-Pitts.

  • the real tita

    #17 & #20: jjb, she needs to do a movie wearing those wigs. She just has to…she’s back and she’s better than before…sultry, sexy, beautiful. If she was a Bond girl, she’d blow away all the competition.

    ********all the news this afternoon are talking about Angie’s baby news. They can’t tell if she has or she hasn’t and everybody’s wondering.


    OMG…the VF pics are BEYOND beautiful. She is PERFECTION. I love the one on her back, and the blondey green wig — I can see Shiloh when Angie rocks that blonde/green wig. Soooo cute.

    …and hey doofas’ haters– Brad’s hair is for his character – he’s playing a dumb gym owner who has bad highlights. What is WRONG with some of you people???

    Damn, what was wrong with the site earlier??? I couldn’t post to save my life.

    Also watched ET tonight they ran the twins story, as if People Mag had never come out and issued that it wasn’t true. They reported the ‘rumor,’ but like didn’t c lear it up – even giving the twins names.

    I am about to say this is a conspiracy. I think the tabloids that got screwed last time over the Shiloh pics, are up to no good and THINK they are driving down $$ and interest by confusing people. This is definitely a job the rags are pulling, I am convinced of it.

  • beautiful

    Love this trailer. Brad is very funny in it. The man can play any kind of roles.

  • surprise

    what’s even funnier than Brad in this is the idea of George & Tilda having an affair. lmao!!

  • ella

    brad is a good actor. He looks funny here. I am going to see this one at the theaters.

  • Jill

    LOL the trailer looks funny. Brad had a nice comic turn in “Mr and Mrs Smith” and he should be good in this movie. I’m looking forward to seeing this one.

  • guli

    OK Jared—many thanks as usual. But today I feel like I have been freakin bar hopping all day long. I am getting dizzy :lol:

    PT–just when I think I’m caugt up with a thread I’m on another….Darn it remember the days when we used to beg Jared for a new thread…ROTFLMAO…

    I can’t wait to watch BAR, it looks hilarious!

  • ñññ
  • joss

    haha the trailer was pretty funny, but to me clooney just can’t pull off comedy…

  • the real tita

    Oh, I think this is going to be a funny movie.

    Brad is really underrated as an actor. In every movie he’s made thus far, he’s been very convincing. If he wasn’t a good actor, you would just see him as Brad, the goodlooking guy. However, you remember his character more in the movies he’s made so that should tell you something…are you listening, trolls?

    All he has to do is change his hairstyle and you get a different character right there. He just didn’t have chemistry with Julia or Catherine, that’s why the trolls are saying he can’t act. They couldn’t see him and these women getting it on.

  • phyicic

    I predict BAR will be a success.

    What I’m confused about is that people said a “rep” said this was rumor. Now don’t they usually name names. I personally don’t think she had the twins but it’s just that no one is really clearing up the rumors. There isn’t a name attached to any of these stories just rep and sources.

  • sharon

    Thanks jj. So many threads today. You are the best.

  • Faye88

    OMG!!!! Thanks JJB for posting those pics. Angie looks drop dead gorgeous in every photo. So stunning! Thank you!!! :)

    And I love this clip of Burn after Reading. I showed it to my friend at work and she thought it was hilarious. She didn’t know anything about the movie, but now wants to go see it.

    Thanks Jared for the new threads. :) :)

  • k

    They jealouse of him because he has a likeablity factor. He is a treat .

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Brad Pitt’s manager denied a television report on Friday that Oscar winner Angelina Jolie, who has publicly acknowledged she was expecting twins with the actor, had given birth to them in France this week.

    “It’s not true. It’s a rumor,” Pitt’s Los Angeles-based talent manager, Cynthia Pett-Dante, told Reuters in a statement issued by her office. She declined further comment.

    However, “Entertainment Tonight” said it stood by its report earlier in the day that Jolie had given birth to twin daughters in France, attributing the story to an unidentified person close to the actress.

    “The source says she was inside the delivery room, tells ‘ET’ yes, the babies were born, and yes, mother and daughters are fine,” the syndicated program said in its broadcast.

    The story was disputed almost from the start by various other celebrity news outlets, with People magazine quoting an unnamed representative for Jolie on its Web site as saying: “Angelina has not given birth. She is fine, enjoying her home and her family in France.”

    Meanwhile, another celebrity publication, Britain’s NOW magazine, reported the latest additions to the Jolie-Pitt clan had already been named Isla Marcheline and Amelie Jane.

    There was no immediate comment from Jolie’s Los Angeles-based manager.

    The only maternity clinic in the southern French city of Aix-en-Provence, the region where Jolie and Pitt were believed to be staying, said it had no information. Town hall officials there said they were aware of the media reports but did not know if they were true. Continued…
