Take me to the movies…

I love a good film, and since it’s been awhile since I posted any I thought I’d share some that I am excited to see…
I’ll start with Michael Gondry’s new film Mood Indigo. If you loved The Science of Sleep, or Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind then I think you’ll be excited by the trailer of Mood Indigo too. It also stars the amazing Audrey Tautou. I couldn’t find any info on a US release date yet, but it looks like it is releasing elsewhere dates between April and July.
Next is Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s new film The Young and Prodigious Spivet. Jean-Pierre Jeunet directed Amelie , Micmacs, The City Of Lost Children, and A Very Long Engagement, and I recommend all of them! His new film is based on the book The Selected Works of T. S. Spivet by Reif Larsen, which I think I’ll need to read! I read the book Very Long Engagement by Sébastien Japrisot (after seeing the movie) and then had to track down translated versions of all his books because I loved it so much. Anyhow this new film is about a “a 12-year-old cartography enthusiast in an eccentric family, who travels across country hidden on board a freight train after being invited to the Smithsonian Institute.” The trailer looks wonderful! I found out its releasing in France in Oct, but have not been able to find Us release dates yet.

but there’s even more!
The Lego Movie– we just saw Monsters U on Thursday, and there was a trailer for this Lego movie. It looks like it’s going to be a good one! Not one of the normal lego licensed character movies either, but a movie about lego mini-figures.
From Up on Poppy Hill– We were never able to find a theater close by that was showing this Studio Ghibli film, so we have ours pre-ordered. And Speaking of Studio Ghibli films there are apparently some other new films coming out this year…The Wind is Rising which was written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki. The Tale of Princess Kaguya which is directed by Isao Takahata (he directed Grave Of Fireflies, such a great one!) So lots of exciting things coming from Studio Ghibli!
