Trailer for Gondry's, Carax's, and Joon-ho's Tokyo Triptych
The official trailer for Michel Gondry's, Leos Carax's, and South Korean director Bong Joon-ho's triptych film Tokyo! has debuted. It has taken a long time for this film to hit theaters and there's a reason for that - it's not all that great. Well, the first and last segments (by Michel Gondry and Bong Joon-ho) are pretty good, but the one in the middle is just shit. Literally, the title of the middle segment is "Merde", which means "shit" in French. And realistically, that segment is pretty damn bad, despite the rather interesting concept involving a freaky guy who lives in the sewers of Tokyo. Either way, check out this trailer.

Tokyo! is comprised of three segments that are written and directed by Michel Gondry (Science of Sleep, Be Kind Rewind), Leos Carax (The Lovers on the Bridge), and South Korean director Bong Joon-ho (The Host) individually. They were invited to come and shoot in the city of Tokyo by the government in order to show the world what it is like. After playing at numerous film festivals, Liberation Entertainment is finally bringing Tokyo! to theaters in New York starting on March 6th and Los Angeles starting on March 20th.
