The Cove... or rather, when hippies attack

This is probably old news for some of you more staunch documentary followers, but the trailer for The Cove has now recently found its way into theaters and wow does it look good. Yes, The Cove sounds like another b-movie horror fest, and though it's technically a documentary, I must admit, I got the same thrills and chills from this trailer as I did while watching Jaws as a child.

If you can't make it to your local theater, I suggest heading over to Apple to watch this preview. Directed by Louie Psihoyos, the film follows a group of dolphin activists trying to uncover the secrets of a hidden cove in Japan. And no, they don't go in Michael Moore style with lips flapping. We're talking covert ops and spy technology that would make Jason Bourne and James Bond blush. If the film is even remotely close to the quality of this trailer, expect this to be one of the few documentaries to hit the main stream market in a major way.

Again, catch the trailer over at
