Full Theatrical Trailer for Hand-Painted Van Gogh Film 'Loving Vincent'
"You're not going to stir things up again, are you?" Good Deed Entertainment has launched a theatrical trailer for the upcoming release of the film Loving Vincent, the very special hand-painted film telling the story of famed Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh. We've already featured a few trailers for this last year, but with a release date set for September they're finally giving this a stronger marketing push. The voice cast includes Aidan Turner, Saoirse Ronan, Eleanor Tomlinson, Helen McCrory, Chris O'Dowd and Douglas Booth. To top it off, the film features a score by the one-and-only Clint Mansell. I really love this animation, it's so unique and I'm still totally impressed they actually hand painted every single frame individually (behind-the-scenes here). I hope the film is as beautiful as the paintings. Can't wait to see this.
Here's the full-length trailer (+ poster) for Dorota Kobiela & Hugh Welchman's Loving Vincent, on Apple:
Loving Vincent is a hand-painted animation feature film, looking into the mystery of Vincent Van Gogh's death, told through the medium of his paintings. "Well, the truth is, we cannot speak other than by our paintings," wrote Vincent Van Gogh in his last letter. Loving Vincent is hand-painted biopic film co-directed by painter Dorota Kobiela & filmmaker Hugh Welchman, from a screenplay also written by Kobiela & Welchman. The film features art hand-painted by artists in the style of Vincent Van Gogh to tell his story. The score is being composed by Clint Mansell. For more info on the film, head to their official website here. The film first premiered at the Annecy Animation Film Festival this summer. Good Deed will release Loving Vincent in select theaters starting September 22nd this fall. Still looking forward to this?

I am not sure about this painterly transposition, but I just might want to see it. Looks better than first trailer ...

Then say goodbye to watching any movie ever. Everything has a gimmick, kid.

Then don't talk like one.

You probably won't read this, because I'm blocked and I deserve it, but if you do, I went too far, was an grade-A A-hole and I apologize. Some things just get under my skin and calling a movie, that MAY be different then all the other terrible movies out there a "gimmick" before it even gets out just seems really unfair. These days it isn't the movie that determines box office success, it is internet "buzz". I should never, EVER drink before posting. Again, sorry.

That's sweet, kid. You're adorable.

LOL, name the movies you have seen this year and I bet there is a gimmick in it, if not you must loathe scrolling through firstshowing.net because it is a site that talks about a range of films for a range of audiences. I'm surprised you visit this site at all.

Some people would love to see more films other than the standard usual superhero remake, the standard, usual CGI "blockbuster", the standard, usual teen sex comedy, the standard, usual gross-out comedy.... I could go on and on about the junk Hollywood churns out every week. So it's frustrating when something JUST A BIT different gets panned right away by bloggers. Have an open mind for a damned second. "gimmick" Jesus. This is why so many films suck Bo.

MOST MOST excited for Clint's score.

IT IS a gimmick. I was tired of it by the end of the trailer. Executing this idea during the entire movie is just pointless, waste of time and effort.

I cannot speak to the merits or flaws in a film that has not yet been released. But I will say this -- anyone who dismissed it out of hand for being "just a gimmick" is just as guilty as those ignorant villagers who murdered Van Gogh with their actions. (Driving someone to suicide is murder.)
Brian Preble on Aug 7, 2017
Bo, you appear to be confused. I never claimed that people who don't agree with me are murderers. I said the population of the town Van Gogh lived in were. They drove him to commit suicide. That is murder, and has been upheld by the courts as such. As to it being a gimmick? Perhaps, but no more than any other form of animation, or color and sound for that matter. Original movies were silent and black & white. Should color TV, stereo speakers, HD, etc. never have been invented just because they were "gimmicks"?

"You want to know so much about his death...but what do you know about his life?" UGH. While the art (literally) being applied to each frame is pretty interesting in itself, this does not a good movie make. But I respect the originality of doing something like this, I'm just concerned that the time and effort might've been more concentrated in that rather than script, story and execution.

Who's whining? I'm not complaining or hating on what you said. You literally complained that the movie is a gimmick. I'm not trying to change you or anything. I just commented that it might be rough for you to roll through the articles here lol. I don't know much about movies at all. I went to school and I shoot on cinema cameras, but not anywhere close enough to know anything.
