After his Perfect Sense finally landed in theaters this year, David Mackenzie’s next is already prepped for a release soon stateside. Switching titles from You Instead to Tonight You’re Mine, we posted a UK trailer for this last summer, but now an official domestic one has arrived.
You’ll likely recognize Attack the Block star Luke Treadaway as our lead here, in a basic plot we’ve seen many times; a girl and a guy who don’t know each other are forced to be together (this time via handcuffs) for an adventure (see: concert festival) and they are reluctant at first, but then slowly fall in love. Thankfully, someone as talented as Mackenzie is behind the camera, which should provide for a more personal take than we usually get. Check out the promising trailer and new poster below via Apple.
TONIGHT YOU’RE MINE is a free-wheeling rock ‘n’ roll love story set against the raucous magnificence and unforgettable sounds at a leading music festival – The 2010 T in the Park festival in Kinross-shire, Scotland. Adam (Treadaway) and Morello (Tena) have a big problem. It’s not that Adam is the heartthrob lead singer in a famous electropop band or that his girlfriend is a spoiled supermodel. His problem is Morello’s problem. Morello’s problem isn’t that she’s lead singer in a struggling post-punk riot girl band or that she’s dating a banker. No, her problem is that she has to perform the biggest gig of her life at a music festival while handcuffed to the kind of person she totally despises – Adam. So begins an out-there odd-ball romantic comedy filled with lust, mud, betrayal, booze, portaloos and a hundred thousand people partying to the greatest music in the world. None of whom seems to have the key – not to the meaning of life – but to the handcuffs.
Tonight You’re Mine hits theaters May 11th, 2012.
