First Trailer for Mysterious Thriller 'The Wedding Guest' with Dev Patel
"Do you know who sent me?" IFC Films has debuted the first official trailer for The Wedding Guest, the latest film from director Michael Winterbottom (The Road to Guantanamo, A Mighty Heart, The Killer Inside Me, The Look of Love). This adventure thriller follows a mysterious British Muslim man, played by Dev Patel, on his journey across Pakistan and India. He's heading to Pakistan to attend a wedding – armed with duct tape, a shotgun, and a plan to kidnap the bride-to-be. This looks like a dark, suspenseful film with some intriguing twists – maybe – once it gets going. The film's cast includes Radhika Apte, Jim Sarbh, Harish Khannaa, Nish Nathwani, Meherbaan Singh, and Sidhu Manpreet. This all seems a bit odd from the description and setup, but obviously there's more to this than it seems at first glance. Check it out.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Michael Winterbottom's The Wedding Guest, from YouTube:
Jay (Dev Patel) is a man with a secret who travels from Britain to Pakistan to attend a wedding -- armed with duct tape, a shotgun, and a plan to kidnap the bride-to-be (Radhika Apte). Despite his cool efficiency, the plot quickly spirals out of control, sending Jay and his hostage on the run across the border and through the railway stations, back alleys, and black markets of New Delhi -- as all the while attractions simmer, loyalties shift, and explosive secrets are revealed. The Wedding Guest is both written & directed by English filmmaker Michael Winterbottom, of The Trip series, as well as Butterfly Kiss, Jude, Welcome to Sarajevo, Wonderland, 24 Hour Party People, Code 46, The Road to Guantanamo, A Mighty Heart, The Killer Inside Me, The Look of Love, and On The Road. This premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. IFC Films will release Winterbottom's The Wedding Guest in select theaters starting March 1st coming up.

I tend to love Winterbottom's films. Some are good and some less so. I hope this one will be the better side of him ...

Yea, me too. You having any difficulties accessing onto this site. I've contacted Alex as it's slow going for me and sometimes impossible to get to the trailer or comments. Not having any trouble on all other site at same time experiencing trouble on this one. Just wondering. Cheers.

Hey Bo. Yeah, we'll see about this one. No, in fact, I have no problems at all reaching Firstshowing.net. But I agree with you, something is weird since my internet connection generally sometimes work slower and sometimes is ok. However, usually, it works fine and I get all I search for. You may ask Alex about it (as you already did), or your internet provider (although, probably, you're not in the mood for pursuing some of these things). Anyway, sorry to hear that ...

Thanks for your reply, shiboleth. Alex and I were in communication and whatever it was he has it fixed and now all is well...quick and smooth and easy like it usually is. I was pretty sure it was connected to this site because I had no problems connecting to all other sites. Anyway, Alex knew right away what it must be and addressed it. Thanks again. Cheers.

I'm glad for it Bo. But mr. Billington seems to be a good guy anyway. One of the reasons I stay on this site. So, let's carry on. Cheers ...
