Watch: Amusing Blooper Reel for 'The Artist' Spreading the Laughter
Oh, how funny! The Artist is poised to most likely win Best Picture at the Oscars in just a few weeks, and although there's somewhat of a backlash against it (which I just don't get at all), it's a wonderful film full of cinematic joy and an immense appreciation for Hollywood past. As one final glimpse at how funny this film is, Allocine (via SlashFilm) recently posted a blooper reel from the film, which includes a lot of amusing silent B&W moments. A lot of them involve the adorable Jack Russell terrier Uggie (who just retired from acting) and it has plenty of prat falls and much more, but this is quite amusing to watch. Check it out below!
Watch the newly released blooper reel for Michel Hazanavicius' The Artist, originally via Allocine:
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. Its been playing in theaters since last year, but with Oscar glory, it'll be expanding, so check your local listings!
