Here's the trailer for the upcoming German film, The Baader Meinhof Komplex. It's got Bruno Ganz from the most excellent The Downfall.
Interesting factoid from Wikipedia:
During a collective hunger strike in 1974, which led to the death of Meins, philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre visited Baader in Stammheim Prison where he was being held. He later described Baader as "incredibly stupid" and "an asshole". Despite never obtaining a driving licence, Baader was obsessed with driving. He regularly stole expensive sports cars for use by the gang, and was arrested driving an Iso Rivolta IR300
