Slumdog Millionaire Trailer and Release Dates

Finally, Fox Searchlight has premiered the full trailer for Danny Boyle‘s Slumdog Millionaire. I’ve said this before, this is one of my favorite movies of the year. You’ll leave the theater with a smile on your face and tears in your eyes.

But its a hard sell. The plot synopsis sounds more corny than anything else. A movie set around Who Wants to bBe a Millionaire? But this film is not what you think it is. It’s not about the game shows, it’s about the life of a boy living in the slums of India, and the love of a lifetime. I’ve seen the movie three times now. The last time I went to a press screening in San Francisco, I dragged a friend who normally wouldn’t have gone to this movie, especially based on the short synopsis. He went in blind knowing nothing about what he was about to see (he didn’t even know the title of the movie), and came out thinking it was the best movie of the year, for him, beating out The Dark Knight.
