As one of the most prestigious acting talents of the last 20 years, Russell Crowe has worked under some of modern cinema.s most lauded and respected directors in the shape of Ridley Scott, Darren Aronofsky, Michael Mann, and Peter Weir. Along the way he.s probably learned quite a lot from these filmmakers, and now he.s set to put these skills to the test with his directorial debut, The Water Diviner, the first trailer for which has just been released and is available to view above. And you know what? It looks epic, to say the least. So what does Crowe.s cinematic assault entail? He stars as an Australian farmer by the name of Connor. It's 1919, and the Great War has finished. It's also almost three years since the Battle Of Gallipoli culminated, which his three sons fought in and failed to return from. So Connor sets out »

Earlier today Deadline debuted the new trailer for 20th Century Fox’s big Christmas picture Exodus: Gods And Kings. The large-scale biblical drama looks Big. Epic. The kind of movie studios used to thrive on but are simply cost-prohibitive these days. Well, they seem to be making a comeback. Ben-Hur, which took 11 Academy Awards in 1959 including Best Picture, is now being remade. Of course Paramount released Darren Aronofsky’s Noah early in the year. But Gladiator in 2000 was the last big-scale epic of this period to wow Academy voters into giving up their Best Picture vote. It’s no coincidence that Ridley Scott directed that one, which also brought Russell Crowe an Oscar for Best Actor. Now Scott is back doing the impossible for Fox with Exodus.
In a brief conversation before the studio’s special press presentation Tuesday evening at the Zanuck Theatre on its lot, Fox Chairman Jim Gianopulos »

Russell Crowe finally takes a directorial stab at the wartime period piece with "The Water Diviner," set after the Battle of Gallipoli, an Allied assault on Turkish forces that resulted in hundreds of thousands of casualties during World War I. Crowe plays a father who lost his sons in the battle and now must find them. The Aussie epic also stars Olga Kurylenko, who dazzled last year in Malick's befuddling "To the Wonder," and rising heartthrob Jai Courtney of "Divergent." "The Water Diviner" hits Australian theaters on December 26 -- so when will we see this film in the Us? No word yet. »

Oscar season is nearly upon us, and it has brought with it a grand collection of trailers for movies that are silently (and not-so-silently) pleading for attention in the major Academy Awards categories. There’s Robert Downey Jr. courtroom drama The Judge, true-life chiller Foxcatcher, David Fincher’s mystery thriller Gone Girl and Angelina Jolie’s Louis Zamperini biopic Unbroken, to name just a few.
Jolie made her feature directorial debut in 2011 with In the Land of Blood and Honey, and this year another Academy Award winning actor is trying his hand at directing drama. Russell Crowe’s The Water Diviner looks like the perfect recipe for Academy attention: it’s got a protagonist with a heartfelt quest (played by Crowe), a dead wife, a First World War backdrop, exotic locations and even a Shawshank Redemption-esque shot of the main character standing in water ...

The first The Water Diviner trailer and poster have been released for Russell Crowe’s feature directorial debut. The story centers on an Australian man (Crowe) who travels to Turkey in an attempt to discover the fate of his three sons, who were fighting in World War I. While I was afraid the film might feel a bit like a vanity project, this trailer is actually pretty good. There are surprisingly few films that revolve around the horrors of The Great War, and this Australia-focused story provides an interesting point of view for what was truly a World war. Crowe appears to be pretty confident behind the camera, and he’s filled his cast out with plenty of Australian actors. Color me intrigued. Hit the jump to check out the Water Diviner trailer and poster. The film also stars Olga Kurylenko, Jai Courtney, Yilmaz Erdogan, Cem Yilmaz, Steve Bastoni, Isabel Lucas, »

"Go big or go home": A skateboarder mindset, a Sarah Palin slogan, the name of a "Parks & Recreation" episode," and now, the guiding mantra of Russell Crowe's directorial debut, "The Water Diviner." Via the magic of Twitter, Crowe debuted the first trailer for the war drama, a shiny blockbuster reminiscent of the high-impact Hollywood productions that shaped the actor's career. When it's not blowing up World War I battlefields, it's swelling with emotional power strings. Written by Andrew Knight and Andrew Anastasios (both involved with Guy Pearce's "Jack Irish" movies), "The Water Diviner" follows a father from New Zealand who flocks to Turkey to find his two sons, gone missing after the 1915 Battle of Gallipoli. Working with remaining troops (including an Australian Liuetentn played by Jai Courtney), Crowe's Connor burrows into the mystery, which appears to flash back and forth between his search and his son's time in the trenches. »

The Weinstein Co acquired Russell Crowe‘s feature directing debut at the Cannes Film Festival in May, where 12 minutes of the film was screened. I saw footage of The Water Diviner at Cine Europe in Barcelona in June and there is definitely an epic feel to the picture based on what was shown there. Crowe plays an Australian farmer who travels to Turkey four years after the battle of Gallipoli in search of his sons who have been reported missing in action. Olga Kurylenko plays the hotel owner with whom he forges a relationship and Jai Courtney is a soldier organizing the effort to identify the tens of thousands of soldiers killed. He reluctantly allows the grieving father to stay and look for his sons’ bodies. Written by Andrew Knight and Andrew Anastassios, The Water Diviner is a RatPac Entertainment film and is executive produced by Brett Ratner and James Packer. »
