Micmacs Trailer

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!

    I love Jean-Pierre Jeunet. This will be great.

    I personally think he's one of the most interesting directors and storytellers working today. I do think he should have steered clear from trying his hand in the Alien franchise but Delicatessen, City of Lost Children, and Amelie were all brilliant conceptually if not in execution. Curious why you're not a fan of his work, Alex?
  • arjones
    I like quirky goofy movies. I think I may like this if I'm in the right mood.
  • City of Lost Children is a favourite movie of mine, this looks super good too. Will be on the lookout for this.
  • How can you not be a fan of Jean-Pierre Jeunet? I'll agree his Aliens sucked but the rest of his films are amazing!!!
  • Can't wait to see this. I loves Amelie. your right Jeunet does have a unique way of story telling.
  • Tomi Lahdesmaki
    I absolutely love everything Jeunet makes and I have not doubt this will be another amazing 2 hour experience from him!! Im really surprised that Alex is not a fan as Jeunet is one of the most original and creative film makers out there. Hope he stays out of Hollywood forever and just continues to make French movies. CANT WAIT TO SEE THIS!!!!
  • xerxex
    wow, it looks wonderful! I can't wait!!
  • beavis
    i'm really not sure about this, but it sure has me interested. what a wacky bunch of people this guy meets.
  • Collin
    I loved Amelie, but I hope that this has a solid core to hold together the pastiche of oddities. This hopeful core was absent from the trailer.
  • Looks great.Loved all his movies.Even A.Resurrection.
  • cornholio_by_the_sea
    looks better than ANYTHING out there right now...cant wait to see this...
  • Bash
    Wow, looks good. Visually, looks Burtonesque. (Or should that be Tim Burton movies look Jeunetesque?)
  • Lando's a system not a man
    I love that Not only does this man have such a unique style of his own, but he's also a great storyteller. This looks right up his alley, classic Jeunet! I think he is what Tim Burton is striving to be!!!
  • I am so excited about this movie. I really loved Amelie and A Very Long Engagement.
