Upcoming Films

I'm a pretty big film geek. Mostly fueled by a course last year on French and Italian cinematic histories, I easily consider myself a movie-watcher. I try and watch a movie a day, if not two. So I'm pretty psyched by these two upcoming movies, and then some music from their trailers. You've undoubtedly heard about both of them so this is nothing new.

Marie Antoinette (trailer) may be historically inaccurate, but I can safely bet it's going to be gorgeous. Luscious scenery, colors, costumes, and pastries all look like it's going to be a great one. I'm in love with Sofia Coppola, mostly The Virgin Suicides. I'm intrigued with her take on Antoinette as a rebel of her time, and using music from the 80s and today to set the mood. New Order, Gang of Four, and Coppola's boyfriend's band Phoenix will all be showcasing tunes in the movie, plus some Bow Wow Wow for good measure.
Gang of Four-Natural's Not In It
New Order-Ceremony
Marie Antoinette is out October 20th.

Michel Gondry's The Science of Sleep (trailer)is just gonna be amazing. With Gondry's past work in music videos and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind as references, this one's gonna be a winner. I'd wanted to see it at Sundance, from only seeing the photo above of Mexican actor Gael Garcia-Barnal in giant hands. Throw in Serge Gainsbourg's daughter as the love interest and you've got yourself an indie sensation, right? His upcoming film Be Kind Rewind sounds hilarious too.
Death Cab for Cutie-Your Heart is an Empty Room
The Strokes-Fear of Sleep
The Science of Sleep is out September 22nd.

What movies are you psyched to see this fall? Which ones have dazzled you so far this year?

"The Illusionist" was awesome, "The Prestige" will be even better.

Give it up for turn-of-the-century magicians

I have seen Marie Antoinette, and the best thing I can say about it is that is a beautiful mess ... It's worth seeing just for the effort put into it by dear Sofia, but it's more a curiosity than any kind of entertaining flick .. I'm really looking forward to "The Departed" and Pedro's "Volver"

Christopher Guest's "For Your Consideration."

anony-fountain and children of men both look awesome!

reel-that's a little unnerving but I'm still excited to see it! even if its a curiosity

drew-how could I have forgotten?! I love guest's work and this one will only be just as funny I'm sure!

Little Miss Sunshine is the best film of the year thus far.

I'm a big fan of Eternal Sunshine and therefore I can't wait to watch The Science of Sleep.

Another film that I've been wanting to watch is The Illusionist.

I have just recently watched Igby goes down and truly enjoy it. So, in case you haven't watched it, please squeeze it in your daily movie schedule. :)

Science of Sleep I'm dying to see (and I agree with Peyo that Little Miss Sunshine is wonderful), Marie Antoinette looks great too (at the very least, a great music video). An odd movie to throw to this mix but I'm looking forward to is Borat, and not even in this fall 2006 category, My Blueberry Nights.

I was surprised how disappointed I was in Little Miss Sunshine, thought it was going to be my favorite film of the year, was a little over average. My favorite was Brick, an amazing movie everyone should see.

Looking forward to The Departed, Babel, Children of Man, The Prestige, etc.

Die erste ist d3 gold die Dampscale Basilisk Eye. Diese Dinge sind für Reputation verwendet Turn-in und kann so viel wie 3 WoW Gold pro Stück im Auktionshaus wert. Der beste Ort, um sie versammeln sich im nördlichen Teil der Wälder von Terokkar. Jede der Basilisken in diesem Bereich eine Chance haben, sie fallen zu lassen.Cloth Punkt ist die erste Sache, diablo 3 gold buy die im Preis geändert hat. Wolle und magewaeve Tuch geworden das teuerste Tuch im Auktionshaus. Dies ist definitiv eines der besten WoW Gold machen Geheimnisse, weil diese Begriffe immer sehr gefragt sind. Die Menschen sind ständig sie zu kaufen, aber es gibt nicht genug Leute Landwirtschaft ihnen.
