My Blueberry Nights Trailer Hits
First look at the Cannes opener...

16 May 2007  |  Written by

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.

You can now watch the trailer online by clicking here.

And remember to stay tuned to Empire for up to the minute news from the world’s biggest film festival.

RE: Another teaser trailer
Oh, and from what I have seen of the two trailers, the film looks amazing. I don't care what critics say. We don't love WKW and his films for the appeal they have on masses. If I liked that sort of director and film, the first on my favorite movis list would be 'The Fast and the Furious'. Edit: I have now seen all three teaser trailers and they look great. You can check out a trailer featuring Natalie Portman at aliePortman.comr, if that doesn't work, you can download it: http://www.natali More

RE: Not what I expected
Wong Kar Wai is my favorite director, and I was very worried when I heard news of his cross-over to English language films, ESPECIALLY since these films(I am talking about Lady From Shanghai as well, which apparently might or might not happen) don't involve Christopher Doyle. The WKW-Doyle team never failed me(I am one of the people that value 2046 as the masterpiece that it is). Needless to say, I was pretty bummed. BUT then I saw some Blueberry on-set stills, and started thinking that Wong's More

Not what I expected
It's looking like the visual equivalent of a Norah Jones song - not always a good thing! Where's Rachel Weisz, Natalie Portman, Ed Harris and, most importantly pour moi, David Strathairn?! Trailer makes it look like a mope-fest between Jude Law and Norah Jones - not what I was hoping for! Here's hoping the film itself is a step up. More

Wong Kar-wai is my favourite director but I fear for this movie as initial buzz and the response at the press screening apparently wasn't good. His last movie, 2046, was a major disappointment for me. However, I'll reserve judgement until I've actually seen this film. More
