Those who require zero convincing when it comes to Pedro Almodóvar‘s next film — i.e., those who are… so excited — will not (nor should) ask for a wealth of pre-release material. Being one of them, myself, it’s with this that I have no problem going for his methods in promoting I’m So Excited, which both the first teaser and this new peek gear toward small glimpses of great fun and little else. That so much more is clearly in the waiting only helps.
Said new peek features some more of the dancing flight attendants and troubled attendees, but also throws in the cameo turns by Antonio Banderas and Penelope Cruz. (Although it’s unsurprising, given the nature of their roles, these look to be very minor parts altogether.) The rest is so manic, quick, and without subtitles, however, that good impressions are hard to get for yourself — save for “this looks rather joyous.” Take this as an impetus not to complain.
Have a look for yourself below (now with English subtitles, thanks to Total Film):
I’m So Excited opens in Spain on March 8th; Sony Pictures Classics will give it a U.S. release thereafter.
After these two previews, does your anticipation for I’m So Excited change in any significant way?
