There are few superlatives that don’t belong on a Some Like It Hot poster, a granite-enshrined classic, but the good folk at Park Circus have let Billy Wilder’s masterpiece speak for itself with this promo for its theatrical re-release. No film is perfect, but Wilder’s comedy comes pretty darn close. Click on the image for a closer look. In case you haven’t seen Empire**’s 80th greatest film of all time – and the date to circle in your diary is July 18, when it returns to the big screen – it’s a rich spoof of Hollywood gangster flicks, a screwball comedy and an off-beat romance (and bromance) all at the same time. The story follows Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon), a pair of jazz musicians haplessly trying to escape the Mafia’s clutches when they unwittingly stumble upon the Saint Valentine's Day Massacre.

Their journey takes them to Florida and, little do they know it, another date with Mob goons. Along the way they fall in with Sugar ‘Kane’ Kowalczyk, Marilyn Monroe’s hopelessly lovely singer, who Joe swiftly falls for hook, line and sinker. The wrinkle? Both he and his Jerry are passing themselves off as Josephine and Daphne, two female musicians.

The re-released Some Like It Hot has a new trailer too, and you can watch that below.
