RUMOR OR REEL?: Trailer for Channing Tatum's 'Public Enemies' Gets a Solid Release Date

Promotional Stills for Channing Tatum's 'Public Enemies' (Wallpaper)On the heels of the 9 second micro-trailer we saw at the end of the Oscars telecast last Sunday, it looks like we may finally get the full 'Public Enemies' trailer we've all been waiting for...

Thanks to the Italian movie site Screen Week we have learned that the highly-anticipated trailer for Channing Tatum, Johnny Depp, and Christian Bale's historical drama 'Public Enemies' may be released as early as next week.

Assuming my translator is correct, the site is reporting that the trailer will debut online on March 4th on Apple.com. In Italy, fans will be able to view the trailer exclusively on MSN that same day.

Although I'm sure we'll be seeing it before other films in the future, the trailer will initially be attached to the new comic-book adaptation 'Watchmen' when it releases in US theaters on March 6th.

It's my understanding that the trailer release news was also confirmed by the Russian distributor of the film, so I'm thinking this has gone far beyond the rumor stage and has leaped it's way into "reel" territory.

In other potential 'Public Enemies' news...The word on the street via the UK's Daily Mail is that the selection committee of the prestigious Cannes Film Festival is taking a trip to Los Angeles, California soon to see a rough cut of the movie to decide where it might fit at the May festival of all film festivals. Rumor has it that 'Public Enemies' may be bestowed the honor of being the opening film or may be a special premiere during the annual film festival. I've heard that a decision will be made some time in April, so I'll keep you posted.

So if the rumors are correct, be on the look out for the new 'Public Enemies' trailer on Wednesday, March 4th, 2009, and as always, I will post it on CTU as soon as I can get my hands on it.

'Public Enemies' hits US theaters on July 1, 2009 and Italian theaters on October 2, 2009. Fans can CLICK HERE to get a current list of international release dates for the film.

UPDATE: I have been told by someone that has seen the trailer that Channing's character Pretty Boy Floyd does make an appearance! :-)
