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
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?
