Indie Trailer Sunday: Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Micmacs US Trailer
Ah yes, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, he's definitely got his fans. Sony Pictures Classics debuted earlier this week the official US trailer (via Yahoo) for Jeunet's new film Micmacs, or Micmacs à tire-larigot in French. It's a whimsical fairy-tale-like film about a quirky?? guy who tries to destroy two big weapons manufacturers with a team of mistfit friends. It looks so incredibly fun and I'm actually very excited to see it, probably because I'm in the mood for a fun French flick like this. It's been playing at some festivals (like SXSW recently) and getting fairly good reviews (see FSR). It's finally hitting theaters in May, so check out the new trailer below!
