WATCH: New Trailer for Paolo Sorrentino's Modern Spin on Fellini, 'The Great Beauty,' Plus Review Roundup

A new official trailer has arrived for Paolo Sorrentino's "The Great Beauty," Italy's Oscar selection for this year's Foreign-Language race.

Think the sick soul of Europe with a thumping baseline. Watch the trailer below, plus check out our review roundup.
