Julie & Julia Trailer

This isn't for everyone, but for those of you who don't care about giant robots or wizards or mutant superheroes, this may be the summer movie for you. Sony has debuted the trailer for Julie & Julia, directed by Nora Ephron, and starring Meryl Streep and Amy Adams, among many other great actors. It's about two women in New York, living opposite lives, who find something in common - cooking. I could call it this summer's Ratatouille, but that's a bit cheesy, so I might also call it this summer's Sex and the City, although this admittedly looks much better than that. If I haven't bored you already, then check this out.

Julie & Julia combines stories from both Julie Powell's book "Julie & Julia" and Julia Child's book "My Life in France" and is based on two real life people. That may not make a difference, but I thought I'd mention.

The film follows Powell, a government employee who decides to cook her way through legendary cook Julia Child's classic cookbook, "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" in one year's time out of her small Queens kitchen. Powell blogs her daily experiences, gaining a loyal following along the way.

Julie & Julia is both written and directed by Nora Ephron, the writer and director of Sleepless in Seattle, Mixed Nuts, Michael, You've Got Mail, and Bewitched previously. The film is based on both Julia Child's autobiographical book "My Life in France" as well as Julie Powell's book "Julie & Julia". Sony Pictures will be bringing Julie & Julia to theaters everywhere on August 7th this summer. Will you be seeing this?

    YES! There will be plenty of us there for this one. Even those of us who do "care about giant robots or wizards or mutant superheroes":)
  • DarkPadme
    wow looks like a great movie :)
  • cyn
    "...growing in front of you!" I agree, looks good.
  • If any woman can draw during the summer it's Meryl Streep. Mama Mia. The Devil Wears Prada. Julie & Julia may not have the worldwide success of Mama Mia, but I can see it making a 100 million in the U.S.
  • Hmmmm.... in the pro camp, Streep, Adams, cooking. In the con camp... Nora Ephron. Ephron nearly cancels the pros out in my book, but fingers crossed...
  • Gopher
    Easily this year's Mamma Mia!/Devil Wears Prada. I'm sold.

    Meryl Streep was born to play Julia Child. I'm lookin foward to this very much actually. Is it just me or does Amy Adams remind you of Kate from John and Kate Plus 8? I dunno why...

  • dave13

  • Derek nomination for Streep? I think so.
  • Janet

    So facking EXCITED! I love watching Julia Child on PBS at night after work. I just let out a loud chuckle when I first heard Meryl do Julia's voice in the trailer.
  • -Peter-
    looks like it could be pretty good
  • The Other Derek
    Wow, I'm so impressed by all the positive comments! Like Everyone else I'm sold on the cast alone...but when you add food, Paris and New York well, how can it go wrong?
  • dom
    horrible, and whats with that accent meryl?
  • b
    Love this. Amy Adams and Streep again is going to be awesome. I'm especially interested to see how the hell Ephron, (incredible writer), gets her way out of this story. I had the same skepticism/curiosity about Stranger Than Fiction and was wowed at the climax.
  • Jeremy
    Shoot me.........shoot me now!!
  • normf
    I always wince whenever I see Nora Ephron's name attached to anything.
  • kitano0
    Well, I'll say that if you have watch a chick flick, Ephron makes the best ones. And "Michael" is one of my favorite movies...This one looks good, too. Amy Adams is just great, and that other actress looks promising, too.
  • Mike
    This actually looks good.
  • kRISTY
    I might go see this. I read Julie and Julia a couple of years ago. I like nora's books and her blog,they a have a deep, snarky quality to them,but her movies seem to be too goopy for me.
  • Susana
    i am thinking this will be uplifting and really nice! i hope so because i'm looking forward to it!
  • george
    @ #8, she does! im definitly going to see this!!
