My title is like a play on the title of that John Lennon song “Whatever Gets You Thru the Night” I don’t want people to think I can’t spell, I can’t always be clever… Anyways there’s finally a trailer for Woody Allen’s latest comedy Whatever Works starring who else but Larry David. I love Curb and eagerly await it’s return (which I hear may be around August) and maybe this can tide me over. Looks like a more traditional Woody Allen romantic comedy with it’s New York setting and middle aged lead, so I’m gonna have to make sure to make some time to see this limited release (It’s being released June 19th, the same day as Year One.)
That reminds that there’s a lot more than just big budget blockbusters coming out this summer. Duncan Jones aka Zowie Bowie (the son of David Bowie) is making his directorial debut with the so far well recieved indie sci-fi flick Moon starring Sam Rockwell and featuring the voice of Kevin Spacey. Demetri Martin is starring in Ang Lee’s Taking Woodstock which is about how the legendary event came to be, that’ll be released August 14th. Those are all the indie flicks I can think of off hand… I’m pumped for Neill Blomkamp’s sci-fi film District 9 on August 14th but I can’t tell how big of budget it has. Peter Jackson is producing so it’s probably not in the same boat as these other films, I guess I just felt like mentioning it.
Here’s the trailer to Whatever Works I just posted a link cause the video was too damn big for the page.
