Check out the brand new trailer for Eagle Eye, starring current hot-ticket Shia Lebeouf and Michelle Monaghan.

Here’s the official description:

“Two strangers become the pawns of a mysterious woman they have never met, but who seems to know their every move. Realizing they are being used to further her diabolical plot, they must work together to outwit the woman before she has them killed.”

Based on this trailer, it looks pretty good…

I realize it’s not related, but fully the first third of the movie gave me a Matrix vibe, but without the Matrix – if that makes any sense. Someone calling on the phone, telling our hero what is about to happen seconds from now, with very explicit instructions. Of course this is a very different concept but it borrows more than a wee bit from that film IMHO.

Still, it looks like a pretty compelling (if hard to believe) concept – and Shia seems to be a decent actor so who knows? This might turn out to be as decent as the trailer makes it look.

Eagle Eye opens on September 26th, 2008
