My Blueberry Nights Trailer

We've been following Wong Kar Wai's My Blueberry Nights since it debuted at the Cannes Film Festival last year. A new full-length trailer has debuted online and really needs to be watched. There is a whole handful of fantastic actors in this, from the gorgeous Natalie Portman to the charming Rachel Weisz to David Strathairn and Jude Law. However, I'm concerned not only at Natalie's accent, but that this trailer doesn't make this seem too good at all. I'm hoping it's just another case of a poorly cut trailer.

After watching this a couple of times, I must retract my statement above. I don't know whether it's the fact that I'm at Sundance or tired as all hell, or a combination of both, but my desire to see this has just peaked. It looks like everything that a film fest indie movie should be with heart, great visuals, and a great story. I wish it was playing at Sundance!

    Portman's accent is bothering you? It's Jude Law's attempt at a north-of-London accent that's freaking me out. He can't seem to decide whether he's midlands, Liverpool or Yorkshire!
  • Ross
    I couldn't agree more pickle. I wonder if he practiced that or just got a bit drunk before each take. Still, i can't wait to see this. I thought the trailer was quite affecting.

    Looks ok...still not sure. Thought natalie looks great and nearly colllapsed when she said... "I'll give you some action."
  • Looks horrible judging by the trailer, not even being able to decipher a plot.
  • Vega Bro
    Yeah. Love the actors, but it looks like shit. Unoriginal everyday shit. Thats what happens when asians come to America to make movies.
  • wonderboy
    wow, vegabro. that was a racist comment, don't you think? what about ang lee's 'brokeback mountain'? no movie is ever that original. especially rambo's "new" movie... ugh. but i do agree, wong kar wai might be better off sticking to working with asian actors. there's a different beauty that comes through in those films. white actors have a different vibe that he may/may not totally "get". still, i'm dying to see this film.

    Trailer looks... blah. But what a great poster! = P

    How about you morons watch the film before spouting racist nonsense. You people are fucking ridiculous. Had Wong Kar Wai's name not been displayed, I doubt anyone would say anything nearly as idiotic and callous. Personally, I couldn't understand what the plot of the film was. If I hear something good about it, I may go out to watch it.
  • Pass. Although using Cat Power's "The Greatest" piques my interest and raises this from a "Definitely Pass" to a "Probably Pass". That trailer sells nothing.
  • Rachel Anne
    Natalie Portman and Jude Law are brilliant. Reason enough to go watch.
  • Amanda
    Looking forward to watching this movie. I heard that the soundtrack is amazing!
