Watch This: Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Micmacs UK Trailer Premiere
From the quirky, kooky, crazy mind of French filmmaker Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Delicatessen, Amélie) comes Micmacs, the story of a man named Bazil who sets out with his new group of misfit friends to destroy two big weapons manufacturers. This new UK trailer comes from Empire, as the film hits theaters there in early January (although Sony Pictures Classics hasn't set a US release date yet). I'm not the biggest fan of Jeunet, but I've got to say this looks great. There's something about his style and storytelling that's unlike anything else out there and I just love it. If you're a fan of any of Jeunet's films, I highly suggest you watch this!
Watch the first UK trailer for Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Micmacs:
Micmacs, aka Micmacs à tire-larigot in French, is both written and directed by beloved French filmmaker Jean-Pierre Jeunet, of Things I Like, Things I Don't Like, Delicatessen, The City of Lost Children, Alien: Resurrection, Amélie, and A Very Long Engagement previously. The screenplay was co-written by Jeunet and Oscar nominated screenwriter Guillaume Laurant, also of City of Lost Children, Amélie, and A Very Long Engagement previously. This first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival where it was picked up by Sony Pictures Classics for distribution in the US sometime in early 2010. So stay tuned for more updates!
