Living on an island with only one movie theatre (now playing: Blades of Glory, coming soon: Spiderman 3) has reduced my interest in movie news. Happily, Gillian posted links to a bunch of movies trailers. The three that most interested me were:
- Across the Universe – I’d seen this one before, and once again it struck me as Forrest Gump meets Molin Rouge. Julie Taymor has some serious art-house cred, so I’m optimistic.
- Once – A musical set in Dublin, starring the (instantly charming, I think) Glen Hansard of the Frames. Looks like an Irish Before Sunrise, and it made me pine a little for the dirty ol’ town.
- Day Night Day Night – An accentless girl prepares to become a suicide bomber. Her target is Times Square. It’s a gritty, remarkable-looking film.
