The first trailer for Roman Polanski's Carnage, the film version of Yasmina Reza's play God of Carnage, has been released.

The film stars Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly, Christoph Waltz, and Kate Winslet and centers on two sets of parents who meet after their sons are involved in a schoolyard fight.

As previously reported, the film will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival, and its North American premiere will be, as previously announced, at the opening gala of the 49th annual New York Film Festival.
