Here is the new trailer for "Salmon Fishing In The Yemen" from the director of "Chocolat" and the Oscar-winning screenwriter of "Slumdog Millionaire" with an all-star cast.
The British comedy stars Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt and Kristen Scott Thomas and is about bringing the sport of fly fishing to the desert.
When Britain's leading fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor) is approached by a consultant (Emily Blunt) to help realize a sheikh's (Amr Waked) vision of bringing the sport of fly-fishing to the desert, he immediately thinks the project is both absurd and unachievable. But when the Prime Minister's overzealous press secretary (Kristin Scott Thomas) latches on to it as a "good will" story, this unlikely team will put it all on the line and embark on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible, possible
The movie is set for release in March of this year.-DocFB

Ewan McGregor stopped by Good Morning America yesterday to promote his new movie "Angels & Demons." Nothing like throwing horseshoes to promote a movie.
Yes, Obi-Wan threw horseshoes on GMA. "Angels & Demons" is technically the sequel to "The Da Vinci Code", and Ewan did not even need to leave L.A. while filming took place in Rome, which is one of the reasons he took the gig. Must be nice. Must be nice.-Dr.FB
The TimesOnline is reporting that the Jim Carrey/Ewan McGregor film I Love You Phillip Morris is having a very hard time finding a U.S. distributor thanks in large part to rather frank and graphic depictions of gay sex.
The film is based on the true story of two men who meet and fall in love in prison. Carrey plays Steven Jay Russell, a Texas policeman turned con-man, and McGregor plays Phillip Morris.
Phillip Morris premiered at Sundance this year, and received mostly lukewarm reviews. But that isn't apparently what's stopping the film from picking up a distributor. According to Lewis Tice, director of marketing and publicity at TLA distributors, "“The depiction of the sexual activity was far more than I’ve ever seen in a mainstream film with a mainstream celebrity. There’s a graphic sex scene in the first ten minutes that I was surprised to see.” Variety magazine described one scene as a "spectacular, ride-em cowboy sex scene."
Fears are that the graphic nature of the homosexual sex scenes has relegated Phillip Morris to straight-to-dvd hell. For now, the $13 million indie remains in limbo, though producer Andrew Lazar still holds out hope for a distributor and a U.S. theatrical release.
