    Trailer Watch: Damon Stars in Invictus and Green Zone

    It is more likely that Matt Damon will score an Oscar nom for Clint Eastwood's Invictus, which slices into Nelson Mandela's 1995 pursuit of the rugby World Cup to unify South Africa, than Steven Soderbergh's offbeat The Informant! which has already faded from the scene.

Ask any independent filmmakers w...
