There was a promotional contest a few months back to see who could come up with the best Black Snake Moan trailer. We're not sure who won, but the official trailer is now on the Web and it's a doozy.
Memphis director Craig Brewer's Southern blues gothic is due in theaters early next year and the early buzz is mixed. We've looked at the trailer three times now and we're not sure what we think. The phrase "over the top" comes to mind. That, and "Christina Ricci sure does wear panties a lot." Some of this thing looks like Tobacco Road and some of it looks like a Saturday Night Live skit waiting to happen. Check it out for yourself here.
