I went to see New Moon on Thursday (yes, the midnight show), and I passed a billboard for this movie Brothers. I read up a little more on it when I got home, and it looks INTENSE!

I was first drawn to it because I absolutely adore Jake Gyllenhaal and Tobey Maguire, and I've always thought they looked alike. How fitting they are playing brothers! But after watching the trailer, I just can't wait to see Maguire pulling off a performance like this.

Trailer here if you want to see! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Z6glSQ44U8

Thanks for the trailer. This does look intense. I'll probably see it, but I don't know if I'll get a chance to

Several evenings ago, I was watching David Letterman and he had Natalie Portman on as a guest...she is absolutely stunning! Letterman commented on the film stating,"It was the best film I have seen in nearly 20 years." Actually, Natalie made a pretty outlandish comment saying, "I would have a threesome with Tobey and Jake...under the right circumstances!? Understandably, Jennifer Meyer, Tobey's wife, was extremely distraught after hearing the comment. But, who knows...maybe Tobey and Jake will spread some of that brotherly lovin'!

Oh my. Tough situation. However, I think when you're an actress, you are so used to faking that sexual attraction that it becomes slightly less taboo to talk about. She probably meant no harm at all, and certainly not to offend his wife. I think celebrities are just slightly more open with admitting crushes because they generate intimacy for a living!

However, it makes me happy she actually is attracted to them! That will enhance their chemistry in the film. And that's some great Letterman praise!

I still have not gotten out to see this (was traveling last week), but in case anyone was wondering...Roeper gave it a good review!
