  Public Enemies trailer
I don't often get excited enough about trailers alone to bother writing about them here, but there's a movie coming out this summer that I've been patiently (and eagerly) waiting to see some actual footage from, and that movie is Public Enemies, the new film by Michael Mann. Mann's one of my favourite directors – Heat is simply a masterpiece, I love Collateral and his remake of Miami Vice (he executive-produced the original show) was one of my favourite movies of 2006 – and the idea of him making a movie about legendary bank robber John Dillinger (Johnny Depp) is enticing, to say the least. Mann is one of those filmmakers who has embraced shooting his films digitally, and there's something really arresting (in the best possible way) about seeing a Depression-era movie shot on digital.

Add to that a cast of ringers like Christian Bale, Billy Crudup (as J. Edgar Hoover; check out his pitch-perfect '30s newsreel voice), Giovanni Ribisi and Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard, and, well...let's just say that I enjoy movies about giant transforming robots as much as the next guy – hell, probably more – but Public Enemies is one of the movies I'm most looking forward to this summer.

See the trailer for yourself here at here Apple.
