Worth Watching - Aug 24: New York, I Love You Trailer

A trailer for the unofficial follow-up to Paris, Je T'aime from last year titled New York, I Love You has debuted. I'm personally trying to unpack and move into our new apartment in Los Angeles today, so I'll make this intro brief. The film features a total of 12 individual shorts. Each one is a love story set in New York City that join together to form a complete film. The directors involved include: Yvan Attal, Allen Hughes, Shunji Iwai, Wen Jiang, Scarlett Johansson, Joshua Marston, Natalie Portman, Brett Ratner, Andrei Zvyagintsev, Fatih Akin, Shekhar Kapur, and Mira Nair. The trailer looks pretty good and I'm interested, but Paris, Je T'aime wasn't exactly the best film, so I'm still a bit hesitant. Enjoy!
