My Blueberry Nights Trailer Hits

First look at the Cannes opener...

As the French Riviera prepares for the annual invasion of moviemakers, studio-shakers and probably the odd troublemaker, the films vying for a coveted gong at this year’s Cannes Festival are beginning their campaigns today, as the sojourn by the sea begins its 2007 celebration.

One such movie is Wong Kar Wai’s first English-speaking feature My Blueberry Nights, which has already been given the hallowed task of opening the proceedings later tonight. With an all star cast that includes Jude Law, Rachel Weisz, Natalie Portman, Tim Roth, Norah Jones and David Strathairn, interest in the Chinese director’s (and former Cannes Jury President) latest offering is extremely high.
