‘7 Days in Havana’ Trailer, Featuring Segments By Gaspar Noe, Benicio Del Toro & More

Written by on April 2, 2012 

The anthology movie is coming back in a big way, and among the (how appropriate) several takes arriving over the next few years, 7 Days in Havana definitely holds the greatest promise. For any definitive proof, simply look at the lineup of directors: Gaspar Noé, Benicio Del Toro, Laurent Cantet (The Class), Elia Suleiman (The Time That Remains), Pablo Trapero (Lion’s Den), Julio Medem (Sex and Lucia), Juan Carlos Tabio (Guantanamera).

I don’t need a trailer to be immediately interested; Twitch has that, anyway, and it’s a nice hint of things to come. While I’d like to determine when I’m seeing footage shot by Noé, for example, a stylistically consistent whole piece would be nice — disparate segments only tangentially stitched together in an editing room are usually my sticking point with omnibus films — and the style here looks to capture the city in loving detail, too. Also: Having entirely forgotten about Josh Hutcherson‘s involvement, I laugh when imagining many a Hunger Games fan stumbling into this movie, only because they want more Peeta. Havana might be worth the price of admission for that alone.

Watch the trailer below:

Also starring Daniel Brühl, 7 Days in Havana will open sometime this year.
