Another year, another Woody Allen’s ensemble-cast movie. I’m not one to rush to see his movies, in fact, I can count with one hand how many of his films I have seen. But these posters of his upcoming rom-com just spell lovely. I love, love these! The illustrated silhouettes are so simple yet sooo romantic, seductive and makes me want to see the movie, which is the idea right? I don’t know which one I like best, probably the right one with the creative use of negative space and just a dash of spicy red against the black and white.
The trailer’s out on Apple‘s trailer page, and here’s the synopsis:
After Alfie leaves Helena to pursue his lost youth and a free-spirited call girl named Charmaine (Lucy Punch), Helena abandons rationality and surrenders her life to the loopy advice of a charlatan fortune teller. Unhappy in her marriage, Sally develops a crush on her handsome art gallery owner boss, Greg (Antonio Banderas), while Roy, a novelist nervously awaiting the response to his latest manuscript, becomes moonstruck over Dia (Freida Pinto), a mystery woman who catches his gaze through a nearby window. Despite these characters’ attempts to dodge their problems with pipe dreams and impracticable plans, their efforts lead only to heartache, irrationality, and perilous hot water.
You Will Meet a Tall, Dark, Stranger also stars Anthony Hopkins, Naomi Watts and Anna Friel. Now, the movie would have been VERY appealing to with an entirely different cast [perhaps with Matthew Goode or my new crush Karl Urban :)]. But Josh Brolin?? Major meh! I hope he ain’t the tall dark stranger, ’cause he definitely doesn’t come to mind when I think about such a man. Banderas maybe, if you’re into the heavy-accented, latin lover type. The way it is now, the only interesting part of this movie is just the posters. Oh, and perhaps the title, too. It’s long, but catchy.
