"I'll tell your husband what you've been up to!" The Weinstein Company has debuted a trailer for the period romance Tulip Fever, based on the book of the same name. Dane DeHaan plays Jan Van Loos, an artist hired to paint a portrait of a married woman and her husband during the tulip mania of 17th century Amsterdam. Alicia Vikander plays his love interest, Sophia. The full cast has quite a few major names: Christoph Waltz, Holliday Grainger, Jack O'Connell, Zach Galifianakis, Dame Judi Dench, Matthew Morrison, Tom Hollander and Cara Delevingne. This trailer is packed with vintage sets, big beards, elaborate costumes and much more, but I'm not sure the story is really that interesting. Take a look.
Here's the first official trailer for Justin Chadwick's Tulip Fever, direct from TWC's YouTube:
Set in 17th century Amsterdam, Tulip Fever follows a married woman (Alicia Vikander) who begins a passionate affair with an artist (Dane DeHaan) hired to paint her portrait. The lovers gamble on the booming market for tulip bulbs as a way to raise money to run away together. Tulip Fever is directed by English filmmaker Justin Chadwick, of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom and The Other Boleyn Girl previously. The screenplay is written by Tom Stoppard, adapted from Deborah Moggach's novel of the same name. The Weinstein Company will open Tulip Fever in theaters starting July 15th this summer. Curious?
Hmm, in a way interesting. Great cast and it looks like this will have some intense moments. At the same time it feels cheap that everybody in Amsterdam has Dutch names yet speaks English. And looking at the trailer, it's very hard to see if they have been filming in Amsterdam at all. The product is clearly not finished but I guess I'll wait for the second trailer.

Oh, what a drama. Without any dramatic freshness. Not that I would like to see young women who will not break morals of society, I would like see them doing it differently and not through cheap and counterfeited love story ...

Another by the numbers fair, but when its done well, like this looks to be, it can be Great! Hard to believe those frilly collars were en vogue at that time.
