I'm So Excited! Teaser Trailer

"I need a booster to face those savages." What the heck are we seeing here? Acclaimed, world-renowned Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar has been working on his next film titled Los amantes pasajeros, or re-titled to I'm So Excited! in English. Sony Pictures Classics, who already has the rights to release this sometime next year, has unveiled an early teaser trailer mostly showing three drunk male flight attendants singing and dancing to "I'm So Excited" by the Pointer Sisters. I'm really not sure what this is or what it's about beyond that, but it's supposedly set entirely on an airplane, which is a fun twist for Pedro Almodóvar.

Watch the very first teaser trailer for Pedro Almodovar's I'm So Excited, in high def via Apple:

As is usually the case, Pedro Almodovar teases with minimal amounts of footage. Los amantes pasajeros (which has a double meaning of "The fleeting lovers" and "The passenger lovers") is written and directed by Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar, of films like Dark Habits, Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!, High Heels, All About My Mother, Talk to Her, Bad Education, Volver and The Skin I Live In previously. I'm So Excited is set almost entirely on an airplane, described by Almodovar as "a light, very light comedy." The film stars Carlos Areces, Raul Arevalo, Javier Cámara, Lola Dueñas, Carmen Machi, Laya Martí, Cecilia Roth, Hugo Silva, with "special collaborations" by Penelope Cruz, Antonio Banderas and Paz Vega.

    Why is "openly gay" a necessary adjective? I'm not being an asshole I'm actually curious why you felt that was necessary.
    • His films tend to be 'openly gay' too, well? Let's not be picky on mostly harmless words.
    • I was about to say the same thing. Why is it always necessary to attach "openly gay" to any story about Almodovar??
    • Nash
      What's the problem with mentioning that someone is "openly gay"? If he is openly gay, don't you think he will appreciate the fact that it is mentioned here? Or do you think that if someone is openly gay, their purpose is that no one mentions it? Because if so, that would rather frustrate the "openly" part. And furthermore, why would every word in a sentence be strictly necessary? Can you explain why the word "*sshole" in your comment was necessary? Wasn't there any other word to express yourself?

      Because sadly some people aren't "openly gay" and it's somewhat of a novelty in our retarded society.

    When he wins an Oscar, they will announce, "And the winner is.....openly gay, Pedro Almodovar!"

  • catotheyoungeryounger
    If you had to be told "openly gay"...well then you need to get out more.
