Watch: Official US Trailer for B&W Silent Cannes Sensation 'The Artist'
The Fame, The Fall! The Weinstein Company has debuted an official trailer for Michel Hazanavicius' The Artist, the B&W silent film that took Cannes by storm, on Apple today. Yes, it's essentially the exact same trailer as the French one we featured during Cannes, but this is the US release and I'm featuring it again because, you know what, I love this movie. I saw it in Cannes, and it wowed me as much as this trailer (here's my review), so I highly suggest seeing this when it hits theaters. Jean Dujardin and the beautiful Bérénice Bejo star as George Valentin and Peppy Miller, with John Goodman and James Cromwell.

Hollywood, 1927. George Valentin is a successful silent movie star. The advent of the talkies will sound the death knell for his career. But for young extra Peppy Miller, it seems the sky's the limit — stardom awaits.
The Artist was conceived and directed by French filmmaker Michel Hazanavicius (interviewed here), of the popular OSS 117 French spy films and Mes amis previously. It premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this May. In the first major sale of the fest, The Weinstein Company picked up the film for US release. It's already set for a November 23rd, Thanksgiving opening, this fall. Expect this get a lot of awards acclaim!
