I Heart Jude
Two trailers full of Jude-y goodness

18 August 2004  |  Written by

Today is a good day for fans of perfectly chiselled features, as not one but two trailers featuring that paragon of manly beauty, Jude Law, hit the net. Yes, the first glimpses of Alfie and I Heart Huckabee's are live, and it's something of a mixed bag.

First we have Alfie, in which the eponymous womaniser (Jude Law) narrates to camera in the style of the Michael Caine original while pursuing a bevvy of lovelies. Alfie looked terribly pleased with himself – as well he might when pursued by Sienna Miller, Susan Sarandon (looking fabulous) and Marisa Tomei – but the whole seems to lack something. Charm possibly, or style, or perhaps Michael Caine.

Interestingly, fact fans, the action of the film has been moved to New York from swinging London, but it was mainly filmed in Liverpool, which might explain the lack of street scenes. There are more worrying rumours that the darkness of the original film has been toned down somewhat to make Alfie look less of a cad, but you can judge for yourself here.

Next up, however, is a real treat – David O. Russell's I Heart Huckabee's. Since making delirious Gulf War adventure Three Kings almost five years ago now, Russell went very quiet, but it looks like he has been cooking up a storm. The film is billed as an "existential comedy", and on this evidence it looks to have both existentialism and the funny. What's more, it boasts the best cast this side of Ocean's Twelve, and gives Jason Schwartzman what looks like his best role since Rushmore. Frankly, we find ourselves looking forward to this one more and more. Answer the questions of life, the universe and everything here.
