Trailer Bulletin: Miami Vice

by | February 23, 2006 | Comments

Michael Mann was one of the creators of the very popular 80s cop series "Miami Vice," so when the inevitable time came to turn the show into a movie, there was only one logical choice for director. Mr. Mann wrote, produced, and directed the upcoming adaptation of "Miami Vice" for Universal, and his leading men are Jamie Foxx and Colin Farrell. Click here for the trailer.

"The cocaine cowboys of the ’80s are gone, but Miami’s Casablanca allure, the undercover cops and the attitudes of Michael Mann’s culturally influential television series have been enhanced by time in the feature film version of "Miami Vice".

Ricardo Tubbs is urbane and dead smart. He lives with Bronx-born intel analyst Trudy, as they work undercover transporting drug loads into South Florida to identify a group responsible for three murders.

Sonny Crockett is charismatic and flirtatious until-while undercover working with the supplier of the South Florida group-he gets romantically entangled with Isabella, the Chinese-Cuban wife of an arms and drugs trafficker.

"Miami Vice," as a large-scale feature film, liberates what is adult, dangerous and alluring about working deeply undercover, especially when Crockett and Tubbs go to where their badges don’t count.

"Miami Vice" stars Colin Farrell, Jamie Foxx, Gong Li, Naomie Harris and Ciarán Hinds and is written and directed by Michael Mann, who also produces along with Pieter Jan Brugge; Anthony Yerkovich serves as executive producer."

Michael Mann’s previous films include "Collateral," "Heat," "The Insider," and "Manhunter."

"Miami Vice" is scheduled for release on July 28th.

In arguably the best cross-promotion in recent history, a teaser trailer for the hotly anticipated, woe-stricken, Colin Farrell man-boobs rumor-inducing action flick, "Miami Vice," is being hosted by the good folks at Bacardi, here.

Yes folks, there is much to relish by following this link to view the Michael Mann-directed big-screen version of the most kick-ass cop twosome to grace the airwaves in the 1980s. With Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx playing vice studs Crockett and Tubbs, this trailer’s got it all: low-lit shots, nightclub scenes and speedboat chases aplenty! All set to the sounds of Jay-Z’s collabo with Linkin Park, this slice of "Miami Vice" is a little bit hip-hop, and a little bit rock and roll.

But wait, that’s not all. Remember, this is all courtesy of Bacardi, maker of responsibly-consumed rum — so after you check out Messrs. Farrell and Foxx in the trailer, you can view Bacardi’s campy "Miami Vice" sendup ads, featuring the soft-focus, 80s-coiffed adventures of their own "Vice"-esque duo, Bacardi Guy and Cola. (In order to enter Bacardi’s site, be prepared to answer some tough personal data — you must be 21 years of age, and please drink responsibly!)

"Miami Vice" is a Universal Pictures film and is slated for release July 2006. "Vice" stars Colin Farrell, Jamie Foxx, Gong Li, Naomie Harris, and Spanish thesp Luis Tosar.
