    I'm a little Jamie Foxxed out after last year, but I have to admit, this is a good-looking teaser. If it winds up half as good as Collateral, I'll be happy.

    I couldn't get it to load completely...I get the first 10 seconds. Hopefully, it will be pretty good. When is it coming out? And does anyone know if any of the original cast will be making cameos?

    I was 100% uninterested and ambivalent to this, though I did like the show when I was a tweener kid in the 80's. Michael Mann and the look have sold me. Mann has a way of capturing the essence of a location with some choice shots.

    Definitely on my 2006 list now,

    Chuck

    The shot of them in the car at the end is classic MV and classic Mann. I wish it wasn't trapped in Flash! (The .swf is easy to pull out of temporary internet files, though.)

    I didn't really think it was that great of a teaser, but it's hard to judge with it so small. I'm just worried that some of the scenes looked just like Collateral, and I don't think that MV should have that same feeling. Is Mann using that same digital camera he used on collateral here? It looks like it.

    I'm about 50/50 on the teaser. Sure, it has that Michael Mann vibe, in spades, but it is also supposed to be Miami Vice and I really don't get that feeling from the teaser at all. And a part of me wished they had revived a little of the original theme toward the end...

    I have faith this will be loads of kickass and cool.

    First of all Michael Mann is all over it.

    Second, Mann wrote and produced for the original series.

    Not too thrilled by the trailer, looks like every other action movie ever made. But, it's made by Mann so I'll see it.

    I'm not really feeling the trailer. It felt a bit sloppy to me and not "cool" enough.

    Also Colin Farrell ... I just don't see him in that role at all and the trailer really didn't help dissuade me from that.

    Also if they were going to use a Jay-Z track for the trailer, Jay-Z's remix of "You Belong To The City" should have been a no-brainer, not the Linkin Park version of "Encore".

    To be dead honest I think it would have been much cooler if they set the movie in the 1980s. I think even the young teen demographic would have "bought" that angle as games like Grand Theft Auto have been very successful using the 80s setting and films like Scarface are still very popular.

    That looks GREAT !!! I'm a huge fan of the original Miami Vice and I've had worries about this new film, but after seeing that trailer [​IMG] I'm there.
    I never expected a carbon copy of the original Miami Vice show but this looks amazing.
    Also, there's a much easier way to get the trailer at:

    I agree that the shot of them riding in the car is classic MV. I really hope that he can use music as wisely as he did in the show. The use of Phil Collins and Genesis back in the was the cherry on top for me!

    Although it would have been cool I'm actually glad they didn't. With Mann behind the helm I've been hoping all along for an update to the series (ie ultra stylish cop story) without any temptations toward homage or parody of a property that would seem so ripe for it. That Universal and Mann restrained themselves from direct and indirect references in the teaser leaves me hopeful.

    Have they wrapped principle photography for this film? The reason I ask is because Colin Farrell just checked himself into rehab (painkiller addiction).

    Eh...it was okay. I love the series (have season one on DVD and season two on the way) and was hoping for a few more homage shots/sounds in the trailer.

    But I do trust Michael Mann.
