We've been following Wong Kar Wai's My Blueberry Nights since it debuted at the Cannes Film Festival last year. A new full-length trailer has debuted online and really needs to be watched. There is a whole handful of fantastic actors in this, from the gorgeous Natalie Portman to the charming Rachel Weisz to David Strathairn and Jude Law. However, I'm concerned not only at Natalie's accent, but that this trailer doesn't make this seem too good at all. I'm hoping it's just another case of a poorly cut trailer.
After watching this a couple of times, I must retract my statement above. I don't know whether it's the fact that I'm at Sundance or tired as all hell, or a combination of both, but my desire to see this has just peaked. It looks like everything that a film fest indie movie should be with heart, great visuals, and a great story. I wish it was playing at Sundance!

User comment: By: RyanLooks horrible judging by the trailer, not even being able to decipher a plot.
User comment: By: Heckle0Looks ok...still not sure. Thought natalie looks great and nearly colllapsed when she said... "I'll give you some action."
User comment: By: RossI couldn't agree more pickle. I wonder if he practiced that or just got a bit drunk before each take. Still, i can't wait to see this. I thought the trailer was quite affecting.
