Despite having no domestic release date, Mood Indigo is, technically, coming soon. It’s a pleasant reminder afforded by this new poster, which advertises an April 24th French opening just below the faces of two attractive stars, Romain Duris and Audrey Tatou; the rest is kind of a wash.
Not terrible, necessarily, and especially since this is only a small piece of the marketing scheme. Still, would you be able to tell this is for a Gondry film, just by looking at it? Take a gander for yourself and decide (via ThePlaylist):
Here’s a full synopsis of Mood Indigo:
“In a world where you can travel around on a pink cloud or literally be swept off an ice-skating rink into a hole, Colin (Romain Duris), a wealthy young man and inventor of the cocktail-mixing piano, wants to fall in love. With the help of his cook Nicolas (Omar Sy) and best friend Chick (Gad Elmaleh), he meets Chloe (Audrey Tautou), the incarnation of a Duke Ellington tune. But soon after their wedding, Chloe falls ill. She has a water lily growing in her chest. Ruined by medical expenses, Colin resorts to increasingly desperate methods to save his beloved’s life…”
About as revealing is this one-sheet for Carrie, the Kimberly Peirce-directed adaptation of Stephen King‘s classic debut — but although the film isn’t of as much interest, this gives us a little more. Complimenting October’s peek at Chloë Moretz is, now, this first look at Julianne Moore, who is picking up where Piper Laurie left off. Since she happened to have left off as one of Brian De Palma‘s most iconic villains, pressure is evident.
The actress, usually a lovely presence, looks more beat-up as the girl’s deranged, evangelical mother, Margaret. So, with some of the sheen stripped away, I guess we could be said to have started out on solid ground; how the rest turns out will only be decided later in the year. Me, I’m hoping for the best while being concerned by this teaser.
Carrie will open on October 18th, and you can see the poster below (via JoBlo):
Does either poster leave any kind of impression?
As much as we’d love to believe certain myths, no filmmaker has simply waltzed into making a masterpiece without cutting their teeth beforehand. Jaws may have been the first modern blockbuster, but Spielberg had already created a terrifying beast with the mechanical semi-truck in a made-for-television film, Duel. Truffaut’s The 400 Blows remains among the [...]
