New US Trailer for Building-the-Eiffel-Tower 1800s Romance 'Eiffel'
"We'll build a dream! This tower is France's tower." Blue Fox Entertainment has revealed the official US trailer for the French romance Eiffel, set during the building of the iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris at the end of the 1800s. The film not only tells of the struggles of celebrated engineer Gustave Eiffel while he creates this famous landmark and works to build it, but also his romance with another woman, a "long lost, forbidden passion that inspires him to change the Paris skyline forever." Oh my. The government is asking Eiffel to design something spectacular for the 1889 Paris World Fair, but Eiffel simply wants to design the subway. Suddenly, everything changes when Eiffel crosses paths with a mysterious woman from his past. Starring Romain Duris as Gustave Eiffel, Emma Mackey as Adrienne Bourgès, and Pierre Deladonchamps as Antoine Restac, with Armande Boulanger, Philippe Hérisson, Andranic Manet, Juliette Blanche. I still want to see this! As cheesy and exaggerated as it is, I'm a sucker for these kind of epic historic dramas.
Here's the official US trailer (+ another poster) for Martin Bourboulon's Eiffel, in HD from Apple:
