The new trailer for Australia is out — it’s Baz Luhrmann’s latest, starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman. Some are already saying that it’s a shoe-in for the top movie of all time in Australia, and the trailer itself doesn’t look very bad, though I am concerned — with Luhrmann, Jackman, and Kidman involved — that there will be musical numbers. It is nevertheless considered a top Oscar contender.

But before you get even a little excited about the trailer, it will behoove you to know what the film is about: An English aristocrat (Kidman) inherits a piece of land the size of Maryland and, with the help of a stock hand (Jackman) has to drive 2,000 cattle over the tract of land, all the while dodging bombs, during WWII’s bombing of Darwin by the Japanese.

Yeah, it’s got it all: Romance! Cattle! Bombs! Moooooooooooooo (*Boom*)!
