Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona Featurette Video

"A sun-drenched splendor that never falters." From the first time the cast for Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona was announced, I knew it was going to be something I'd eventually be looking forward to seeing. Plus, in my one visit to Barcelona, I found it to be an amazingly beautiful city, a perfect place to set a comedy like this. Remarkably, this movie is due out in theaters on Friday and its hardly got any buzz - so I thought I'd throw this featurette out there and possibly strike up some late buzz for its release. And to top it all off, here's a bit from a positive review by David Denby of the New Yorker: "In this movie, [Allen] has put actors with first-class temperament on the screen, and his writing is both crisp and ambivalent: he works everything out with a stringent thoroughness that still allows room for surprise."
Thanks to MSN for debuting this featurette and reminding me the yet another Woody Allen film arrives in theaters this weekend. Hopefully this featurette in combination with the trailer is enough to convince everyone to head to the theater to see this. The film currently has an 86% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Watch the featurette from Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona:
Vicky Cristina Barcelona is both written and directed by legendary filmmaker Woody Allen. This is Allen's 41st feature film, following Cassandra's Dream and Scoop from the past few years. The film first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and will be distributed by The Weinstein Company this fall. Vicky Cristina Barcelona currently arrives in theaters starting on August 15th.
