Coming Soon

Across the Universe

I’m not really a fan of musicals…and it’s been along time since I’ve watched a musical that I actually liked…way back in 2001, Moulin Rouge.

Across the Universe is a new musical coming to us in September. According to IMDB, It is an original musical film and is a fictional love story set in the 1960s amid the turbulent years of anti-war protest, the struggle for free speech and civil rights, mind exploration and of course rock and roll. The film is also paired with many Beatles songs that defined the time and stars Evan Rachel Wood and Jim Sturgess as Lucy and Jude, the young lovers.

I’ve recently caught the trailer and I think it looks pretty. Its colourful, loud and seems quite theatrical too. The story itself looks pretty interesting.…of course the songs we know should be good right…So hope this is a good musical…Definitely something I would want to check out. You can view the trailer here.

Paris, je t’aime

Another movie that’s coming to us this time in May is Paris, je t’aime. Now this is an interesting movie to watch out for. Its actually made up of 20 films, all directed by different directors…to name a few, Alfonso Cuarón, Gus Van Sant, Tom Tykwer, Wes Craven. I’m really curious how they’re going to weave all the stories together to make one coherent movie. If it works…then this would be a great film…I kinda think it is…I mean why else…would all these well known directors and actors would want to be involved in it if its not…Well of course…there’s also the money thing…
Anyway you can check out the plot summary at IMDB here.
