Before Midnight Trailer Arrives
Delpy & Hawke are back

28 March 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Yahoo!

Richard Linklater, Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy’s Before... films have been a sort of rom-com Up (the long-running Michael Apted documentary project, not the Pixar film), chronicling a couple through several stages of their love, from meeting to long-term living. Now comes the third entry, Before Midnight, which has just released a trailer. 

Shot stealthily last year in Greece, Midnight finds Jesse (Hawke) and Celine (Delpy) after another nine-year break. In that time, it appears things have gone well for the now fortysomething pair – they live as a couple in Paris, have twin girls and are holidaying on a Greek island.

Yet it appears there are cracks in their outwardly comfortable picture of two people in love: the stresses and strains of maintaining a long relationship are beginning to show...

After some solid reviews at Sundance, it’s a treat for fans of Before Sunrise and Before Sunset to check back in with the characters, even if we’re starting to worry that our Up joke above might end up coming true if Linklater and his actors decide to follow this story to its natural conclusion. Before Midnight is set to arrive on June 21.

REALLY looking forward to this film and spending time with these characters again. Richard Linklater is making the classic films of our time without question. More
