Trailer: Promised Land

— Posted by Ryan


The film “Promised Land” has a plethora of talent surrounding it. The director of “Good Will Hunting,” Gus Van Sant, will be working once again with the film’s star, Matt Damon, in this film about a big corporation looking to capitalize on rural farmers’ land. Matt Damon and the film’s other star, John Krasinski, collaborated on writing the screenplay for this film. I hope that the collaborative effort on this project pays off and gives us a great film. Take a look at the trailer below.



We’ve got a familiar story heard many times before, corporate employee with a conscience deals with the internal struggle of furthering his career or doing what’s best for the people. Internal conflict has always been a successful element in heartfelt dramatic films as long as the audience can relate to the characters. Given the talent, I do not see character development being an issue in this film. Alongside Matt Damon, John Krasinski, and Frances McDormand, Oscar nominee Hal Holbrook will play a pivotal role in the film. Holbrook was nominated for his role in “Into the Wild” and his performance was absolutely amazing. Out of the already established cast, I was actually most excited to see him appearing in the film. I hope that with this talent the film will build a stronger dynamic story than the generic one we’ve heard many times, but even if they stay in the generic realm, I think it will still turn out to be a great film.

First and foremost, Ryan Brown is a fan. He has been an avid fan of both the theater and cinema since an early age and his passion for both has been continually growing ever since. When dissecting a film, he focuses on all elements of film-making including some fan/cult factors. He believes that character development is the foundation of a good film and usually starts his analysis of a film from there moving forward. His writing style may be influenced by his background of narrative and argumentative studies in the subject, but he tends to enjoy a more conversational style to better interact with the readers, unlike some other pretentious and pompous writers.
