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?

Trailer is tucked under the seat!

Denzel Washington Joins Epic Sci-Fi

Denzel WashingtonNeed a little bit of happy news to make up for the lack of interesting developments coming out of Hollywood the past few weeks? Have I got a doozey for you!

Remember The Hughes Brothers? Let me refresh your memory (though I seem to recall a discussion about one of their most recent films). They directed Menace II Society, Dead Presidents and From Hell. The duo has been busy producing TV and an upcoming project but according to The Hollywood Reporter, they’ll be returning behind the camera for a post-apocalyptic drama (the best kind) called The Book of Eli about a “lone warrior” in the near-future American wasteland fighting “to bring society the knowledge that is key to its redemption.”

Aside from this sounding mighty interesting to begin with there is also news that Denzel Washington has been cast in the lead and it will be his job to deliver this “key to redemption.” Thinking back to how great From Hell looked, I can’t wait to see what The Hughes Brothers and their set designers come up with for the look of the film. If nothing else, it’s going to look fabulous but to boot, the dynamic due are pretty talented behind the camera. To sweeten the deal, Washington is no slouch.

Definitely something to look forward to.
