I'll Be in My Trailer

The Brothers Bloom

I didn't have any feelings towards Rian Johnson's follow-up to his critically acclaimed indie Brick (I kinda hated it) until I saw this trailer and now I'm highly anticipating this one. Just look at that cast: Adrien Brody as the romantic lead, Mark Ruffalo as the con artist brother, Rachel Weisz as the silly heiress and Rinko Kikuchi (!!) as an explosives expert. The plot sounds like something straight out of a 30's screwball so let's hope it does that better than Leatherheads.


It's a shame that no distributor will go near this film because, judging by this Spanish trailer, Che looks absolutely gorgeous and Benicio del Toro seems absolutely game. I'm really hoping we will get to see this all in one piece as intended.

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist doesn't look like it will change the world or anything, but it seems like a great film to just sit back and have a good time at. Michael Cera is a little cutey and his comedic style has grown on me after Superbad and Juno. I also liked Kat Dennings in The 40 Year Old Virgin and I think she looks funny in the trailer.

Burn After Reading (Redband)

I know this is a month or so old, but it's so damn hilarious that I want to share it. I love the Coen Brothers in their silly, Big Lebowski/Fargo mode and this one looks like another winner from them. Plus, how often does Brad Pitt come off looking like a full-fledged comedian?

The Brothers Bloom looks like a lot of fun.

Eh. Michael Cera still hasn't grown on me.
