It's Here: Wong Kar Wai's Trailer for The Grandmasters

I posted about this feature being in production a bit back now. (See here) But as it is with most Wong Kar Wai films, they take a while, so patience is key. But now a teaser trailer has emerged and I am beyond excited. With Wong Kar Wai at the helm and Tony Leung at his side, this rendition of the story of legendary martial artist Yip Man sure looks like one hell of flick. Ya that's right a Wong Kar Wai martial arts film. My response: Where can I buy my tickets? See the trailer below:

There is still no release date but definitely keep and eye out for this one before the year is through. I cannot wait. Can you?

Happy moviegoing folks!

Keep an Eye Out For: The Myth of the American Sleepover

Check out the trailer for David Robert Mitchell's The Myth of the American Sleepover. This looks like a well thought out and furthermore well executed film. A time past with a unbiased tone? There is a level of honesty even in the aesthetics that cannot be denied here.  This is a first feature for Mitchell and looks like it's going to be well received and might actually be really great. I look forward to watching it. Keep yours eyes and ears peeled.
Check the trailer below:

Keep And Eye Out For: Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

Just watch the newly released trailer for Let the Right One In director, Tomas Alfredson's, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.

Now this is how you make a trailer. Jesus Murphy this cast! I can't even begin to verbalize how the entire aesthetic of this film insights so much excitement in me. I can't even begin to describe here. Just look at the composition alone. This is beginning to remind of the great Alan J. Pakula films, like The Parallax View. There is some Gordon Willis magic here. Definitely keep and eye out for this one. Looks like it's free of your run of the mill Hollywood malarky. But damn, these are the movies I want to see more of. Keep and eye out folks. Looks like it's going to be gooooood.

Happy moviegoing!
