'Mr. Brooks' trailer is up, and Costner is a killer

Click here to see the "Mr. Brooks" trailer. What do you think?

My favorite part is when Costner is awarded something from a Portland, Ore., chamber of commerce and then he's soon seen standing before a lake filled with cypress trees.

Um, the swampy southern trees may very well grown in Portland (never saw one when I lived in Oregon), but they are hardly ubiquitous there. The city is known for one plant: roses.

Other than the frightening botanical liberties being taken by the location scout, "Mr. Brooks" looks promising.

It's interesting to note, if memory serves me right, that Shreveport was rumored to have replaced Portland in the search for a location.

I can just hear the producers: "Shreveport? Portland? Roses? Cypress? Whatever. Costner can look cool as a killer in both places. ... Let's just ditch that pruning scene."

Of all the trailers I've seen of Shreveport's productions, this one is by far the most exciting! It showcases the city well... great cast, great plot and Costner as a murderer! This is quality. To bad the movie isn't set it Shreveport.

I wish I could have seen more of William Hurt's alter-ego character in this trailer. When that man plays a psycho, he does it to the nines.

Yeah, that doesn't look like Portland. That said, Shreveport looks awesome!!

I have to agree with everyone else.... This looks quite promising!

This is going to be one of the best movies, and I hope it's premiered at the boardwalk, and the stars come back to see it. Marg Helgenberger is an *amazing* actress, by far my favorite...ever, and it was nice to see her in the trailer more than just one time. I can't wait to see it!
