Must Watch: First Seven Minutes of The Brothers Bloom
I'm breaking one of my own unwritten rules by bringing you this footage from Rian Johnson's The Brothers Bloom this wonderful morning. But that's because I absolutely adore this movie and I think this opening does a wonderful job of drawing audiences into the story without spoiling anything at all. You'll see exactly what I mean when you watch this. It's a brilliant opening anyway and really does set the mood for what is about to eventually play out within the film. If you don't want to go out in theaters and finish watching The Brothers Bloom after this opening, well, then there's no hope for you anyway. Enjoy!
Watch the first seven minutes of The Brothers Bloom:
The Brothers Bloom (Brody / Ruffalo) are the best con men in the world, swindling millionaires with complex scenarios of lust and intrigue. Now they've decided to take on one last job - showing a beautiful and eccentric heiress the time of her life with a romantic adventure that takes them around the world.
The Brothers Bloom is both written and directed by young filmmaker Rian Johnson, of the 2006 indie gem Brick. This first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year, where I gave it an 8 out of 10 in my review. Summit Entertainment will finally debut The Brothers Bloom in limited theaters starting on May 15th.
