More Buzz on Danny Boyle's Sunshine

Sunshine - Directed by Danny Boyle

Sunshine got a whole lot more interesting from this newest trailer. And fortunately I'm not the only one excited for it! We've talked about this upcoming project from Danny Boyle (of 28 Days Later and Trainspotting) quite a bit recently, and it still deserves every bit of attention I can give it. I'm a sucker for futuristic sci fi and this one is currently topping almost any list I have for movies to look forward to. And yes, this is the one starring none other than Cillian Murphy and Michelle Yeoh. The official US trailer was released about a month back, but a new one has just shown up in addition to a beautiful new poster and a pretty interesting gallery of photos from the set and the film. Check out the newest trailer and poster below.

And there is a great set of photos here on Flickr as well as endless information and clips on their official website - Unfortunately a US release date is not apparently set. It's supposed to open in the UK only in early April, but there's no word on when it will arrive in the US. Is there anyone else as excited as I am for this, too?

And lastly, check out this beautiful new poster for the movie as well. I love the tagline:
"If the sun dies, so do we."

I love the poster. I can not wait for this movie. I'm excited as you for this one. I hope it doesn't take a long time to get here. According to Box Office Mojo, it will be released wide on March 16th. I will be very sad if this is a lie.

No worries! Everyone's just as excited for it as you are! Check out the forum where we're all a bunch of crazies:

Jeff, unfortunately I think that's wrong. I had it listed as that date for a while, too... But if it were truly coming out then, we'd be seeing a MUCH bigger marketing push. Currently there is nothing... I'm pretty sure it may still come out early April in the UK, but not until later this year or fall for here in the US. Really sucks... I may have to fly out to London just to see Sunshine!

April seems like a perfectly reasonable US release date. US theatres started showing trailers two or three months ago. Television promotion usually doesn't start until, at the most, one month prior to release -- often these days it's the *week* prior. They'll want to have blurbs and stars and thumbs before pulling out the big guns. What's more, US openings are usually quite a while before UK openings, except in the case of UK films, which, when they're big ones like this, are generally released in both regions simultaneously. Otherwise they do the festival circuit and then fizzle. This is not a festival movie. This has blockbuster written all over it. April release. Probably.

You mean... hopefully!

Tom Rothman, Co-Chairman of 20th Century Fox, says the US will be receiving it this fall. US and Canada get it in the fall, the rest of the world's getting it in April. I'm one of the crazies going to London especially to see it.

Well, crap.
