New Trailer For 1990s Period Film Battle In Seattle

Battle In Seattle, out Semptember 19, takes place during the riots at the World Trade Organization’s 1999 meeting in Seattle. Andre Benjamin, Woody Harrelson, Michelle Rodriquez, Charlize Theron, and Ray Liotta star as clashing peaceful activists, violent activists, and cops. Charlize Theron seems too glamorous to play an Adbusters-subscribing anti-globalization activist, but her boyfriend Stuart Townsend directed the movie:

I think this movie looks interesting, though maybe a little over-dramatic, but I do know that if I see it I will laugh out loud if I have to take anyone screaming while wearing colorful butterfly wings seriously.
