Trailer for much delayed Margaret reveals all

There are films that sit on the shelf before being rescued, and then there are films that are simply dumped to DVD after a certain point. But rare is the story of Margaret, a film that never even made it to the shelf because the director couldn’t find the film in the editing room. Want to know why a film starring Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo and Anna Paquin was delayed for more than five years before being released? Director Kenneth Lonergan (You Can Count on Me) spent a ridiculously lengthy stint in the edit bay (who does he think he is, Terrence Malick?) before the financiers and production companies started filing law suits. This of course, only delayed the film even longer.

One has only to look at the trailer to know that this film is going to be a train wreck along the lines of Nothing Is Private (Kurt’s Review).

A 17-year-old New York City high-school student feels certain that she inadvertently played a role in a traffic accident that has claimed a woman’s life. In her attempts to set things right she meets with opposition at every step. Torn apart with frustration, she begins emotionally brutalizing her family, her friends, her teachers, and most of all, herself. She has been confronted quite unexpectedly with a basic truth: that her youthful ideals are on a collision course against the realities and compromises of the adult world.

The shockingly over-blown trailer is tucked under the seat.

New York, I Love You Trailer

New York, I Love YouI knew that at some point we’d posted a trailer for the anthology film New York, I Love You what I didn’t realize was that that trailer was posted a year ago.

The film premiered at TIFF last year and Kurt foresaw the film would open early in 2009 but for some reason, reviews perhaps?, it was shelved and forgotten until today when a sexy discombobulated new trailer appeared. With acting and directing contributions from a long list of talented folk (Park Chan-Wook, The Hughes Brothers, Faith Akin, Mira Nair, Yvan Attal, Shunji Iwai, Wen Jiang, Joshua Marston, Andrei Zvyanginstev, Brett Ratner, Shia LeBeouf, Blake Lively, Natalie Portman, Hayden Christensen, Anton Yelchin, Orlando Bloom, Christina Ricci, Chris Cooper, Kevin Bacon, Robin Wright Penn, Maggie Q, Ethan Hawke, John Hurt, Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman and Olivia Thirlby) this is bound to have a little something for everyone.

The trailer is not exactly eye popping but it certainly looks nice and I have love for much of the talent involved so I’m game. I still haven’t seen Paris, je t’aime but I may have to check it out before being sucked into this one.

New York, I Love You is scheduled for limited release on October 16th.

Now, who’s working on a Vancouver, I Love You?
