Trailer for Matt Damon's "Promised Land" Anti-Fracking Movie

Posted: September 22nd, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Trailer for Matt DamonSubmit Comment
Focus Features has unveiled the trailer for "Promised Land," starring Matt Damon, Frances McDormand, John Krasinski, Hal Holbrook and Rosemarie DeWitt. It's directed by Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting) and is set to hit theaters on December 28th, in limited release. Check out the trailer below.

Plot: Steve Butler (Damon) is a corporate salesman who is sent along with his partner, Sue Thomason (McDormand), to make a deal with a key rural town in his company's expansion plans. With the town having been hit hard by the economic decline of recent years, the two outsiders see the local citizens as likely to accept their company's offer, for drilling rights to their properties, as much-needed relief.

What seems like an easy job for the duo becomes complicated by the objection of a respected schoolteacher (Holbrook) with support from a grassroots campaign led by another man (Krasinski), as well as the interest of a local woman (DeWitt).

This is obviously going to end with Damon packing his stuff and going back to his superiors and telling them , he's not gonna buy off the town... unethical, immoral all that crap and then he'll return there, try to woo back DeWitt.

Fracking is bad, oil is bad, coal is bad, ethanol is bullsh*t, solar is bullsh*t, wind is bullsh*t, nuclear is bad, et cetera.

Here we have Damon portraying a greedy, rightwing capitalist who experiences a change of heart through the actions of the typical leftwing heroes: a schoolteacher, who's probably in a union, a grassroots campaigner, and a woman.

Predictable trash.

Evil company comes in, tries to make a profit by under-buying people's property, and then tries to leave behind a devastated landscape, plans which are put to ruin by the valorous actions of the aforementioned heroes.

Because of course fracking is evil, and anything that helps end America's energy dependence is evil, unless it's wind, solar, or fairy dust. Not even cow farts are safe as they contribute to global warming.

And Gus van Sant, f*ck off. Good Will Hunting was bullsh*t. A f*cking janitor who's a supergenius? Just how f*cking STUPID do you have to be to believe a man that smart would end up as a f*cking janitor? Maybe if he was a quadruple apmputee, a potato brain and no more, but f*ck man, he'd have to be either the most unmotivated man alive, or just insane, and yet, he's depicted as better than normal, psychologically.

Total f*cking fantasy. Just like this crap. Drop dead.

"then he'll return there, try to woo back DeWitt."

Natch.

Because of fracking, the US is potentially the Saudi Arabia of natural gas. It's an ineviable facet of our long-term energy future, and as long as it's done right, it can be pretty environmentally safe. What's funny is that I'm mostly left-leaning, but films like this oversimplify and polarize an issue that needs meaningful discussion, and it's frustrating that a lot of people will probably be informed by this film rather than seeking out proper information sources on the subject. The lefties will move further to the left because Matt Damon says so and the righties will take one look at the trailer and, like Mink has, call bullsh*t (probably rightfully so). And polarize the issue further. Lame.

Mink is just jealous of good filmmakers.
