Armed with a love story taking place at three times over a thousand years, flawless special effects, and more period costumes than you can shake a stick at, the man who brought you "Pi" and "Requiem for a Dream" has a gem of a film with "The Fountain." Here is the flipbook, full of pics and courtesy of Rotten Tomatoes, plus a snazzy new trailer.
The trailer is a little taste of what Darren Aronofsky has in store, and it should whet your appetite for the razzles and dazzles of three interwoven period pieces, a love story, and a science fiction enigma.
With visuals reeking of "Solaris" just as much "Requiem," "The Fountain" takes on Aronofsky’s usual questions about life, love, and the universe, and stars Hugh Jackman, Rachel Weisz, Ellen Burstyn, and Ethan Suplee. IN THEATERS OCTOBER 13, 2006.
