Justin Long & Emmy Rossum Find Love in First Trailer for 'Comet'
Since Kevin Smith's Tusk couldn't last in theaters over a couple weeks, maybe Justin Long will have better luck with a six-year spanning romance in Comet. The indie premiered at The Los Angeles Film Festival and follows a complicated relationship between the uptight Dell (Long) and a bright young girl named Kimberly (Emmy Rossum of "Shameless"). Set in a parallel universe, the film bounces back and forth over the course of an unlikely romance that lasts six years and moves from Paris to New York, but not before it all starts at Hollywood Forever during a meteor shower. This looks like a pretty great indie romance. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Sam Esmail's Comet, originally debuted by IMDb:
Hurtling back and forth in time over six years of a passionate, complicated relationship, this high-style love story crackles with brilliant repartee and simmers with true feeling. Emmy Rossum is the bright, skeptical Kimberly, and Justin Long is the tightly wound Dell. They first meet in a random encounter at Hollywood Forever, where they've both come to watch a meteor shower. It's the start of a romantic roller coaster ride that leaps from a Paris tryst to a squabble in New York to the Hollywood Hills, taking risky and unexpected emotional turns with daredevil aplomb. Comet marks the feature film debut if director and writer Sam Esmail and after premiering at the LA Film Festival the film arrives in limited theaters on December 5th.

That looks like fun. Curious on the editing/vfx. Plus I'm still new to LA, so even better.

I'm not usually one to go for romance, but this looks different. Plus Justin Long hasn't been picking the greatest movies, so I'm hoping this is a change, I think he's a great actor.

Time-line hopping is a little overused in these kind of indie-roms, but really like the execution, jump-cuts, use of effects etc. Hope this makes its way to a few British screens/festivals

I always feel like your closing paragraphs should be in quotation marks, or at least in bold or something to identify it's not really part of the site's writing. Unless you described it as crackling with brilliant repartee and simmering with true feeling.

The second paragraph of posts for trailers, posters or featurettes is almost always devoid of our own opinion, and the plot or other descriptions usually come from a press release, festival guide or something like that. We may try to more clearly differentiate between the two as time goes on.
