Michael Mann's "Public Enemies" Trailer, starring Johnny Depp & Christian Bale

Director Michael Mann's "Public Enemies" tells the tale of American gangsters such as John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson and Pretty Boy Floyd during a major crime wave in the 1930s, and the Feds' attempt to take them down. This film looks like it's going to deliver on several levels and hopefully it will be a return to form for Mann after the craptastic "Miami Vice." You can't really go wrong with Johnny Depp (Dillinger) and Christian Bale (Federal Agent Purvis) in the same flick. In fact I can't really imagine two bigger male leads (with acting chops) in a film together in recent film history. The trailer seems to show that the film will follow in Mann's unique style of gritty action balanced with great storytelling. Top that off with a great supporting cast including Billy Crudup (currently seen in Watchmen), the gorgeous Marion Cotillard and Giovanni Ribisi and it seems like a sure-fire formula for success. Kick back and enjoy:
