Blindness Trailer

3 07 2008

Fernando Meirelles, director of City of God and The Constant Gardener, now brings us Blindness.

This looks great! Blindness has a really cool and creepy premise and it is drawing a lot of comparison to The Happening which I have still yet to see. I hadn’t heard anything about this movie before today, and I’m not sure how this one got past me. I’m a big fan of both Mark Ruffalo and Julianne Moore and with Danny Glover and Gael Garcia Bernal involved as well, I can’t wait.



Bill Murray and Jim Jarmusch Team Up Again

14 02 2008

Exciting news, at least for me. Bill Murray has signed on for The Limits of Control, which will be his third film with Jarmusch after Coffee and Cigarettes and Broken Flowers both of which I thoroughly enjoyed. The rest of the cast looks great as well. This comes from the kind souls at /Film:

“Actress Tilda Swinton, hot off Michael Clayton and a Broken Flowers co-star, is also on board alongside Gael Garcia Bernal (The Science of Sleep). Their roles have not been identified as of yet, and a few star cameos are said to be expected.

The film is set in Spain and follows “a mysterious loner as he attempts to complete a criminal job.” Memorable actor Isaach De Bankole, who played the French ice cream man in the director’s classic Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, will play the loner.”

Bill Murray has his plate full for a while, as Get Smart comes out this Summer, followed by City of Ember in the Fall. He is also working on The Fantastic Mr. Fox with Wes Anderson, which is set to come out next year. It is great to see that one of my all-time favorite actors is still getting work, and quality work at that.
