Exclusive: Perfect Sense Trailer
Everything's gone Green

Exclusive: Perfect Sense Trailer

The end of the world is getting more complicated on the big screen. In the old days it usually involved a big old asteroid, some rogue aliens with wanderlust and a bunch of rayguns, or perhaps a defense system becoming self-aware and unleashing a bajillion nukes. If you were Roland Emmerich's laptop, it was probably all three.

Nowadays we've got entire planets heading our way (Melancholia), global pandemics breaking out (Contagion) or the kind of mystery virus Ewan McGregor and Eva Green are faced with in this new trailer for Perfect Sense.

We're assuming that the 'perfect sense' part relates to the blossoming, tender bond that develops between the pair - her, a research scientist; him a chef - because the events unfolding around them look firmly fileable in the 'abnormal' basket. Seriously, who hits a wall with a bike wheel? It's one step away from shoe throwing.

Director David Mackenzie, who's double-barrelling his romances with a different kind of love story, You Instead, this week, has set out to explore the notion of love in a deeply uncertain world. If it sounds like 28 Days Later reimagined by Mills & Boon, that'd be doing it a disservice. On this evidence, McGregor and Green generate enough chemistry to guide us through the tumult.

 

The eagle-eyed among you will also have spotted a Trainspotting reunion in there, with McGregor's old mucker Ewen Bremner popping up as his new mucker in their restaurant kitchen. Click below for a closer look at the new quad poster (no Spud included).


Perfect Sense is out on October 7.

Perfect Sense is Nonsense!
Got to see this at EIFF, one of the worst things I've ever seen. Ridiculous, over the top and pretentious. Stay away from this movie! More

Pretentious tosh...
Saw this a few months back at a preview screening in Glasgow, and I must say - it was terrible! As Kermode would say, everyone involved should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves... Well, I guess not everyone, as the DP has made Glasgow look lovely (it really is a good looking city in places!). As for the film itself, it is just overblown, and for a love story of two people losing all senses, it was so detached and cold, which I guess you could have expected considering the casting of Eva Gre More
