Hopkin's Slipstream trailer online

AnthonyHopkins.jpgAnthony Hopkins has written, directed, scored and starred in his latest film Slipstream, and the trailer is online to confuse and intrigue. Wait till you see this, you'll be wondering whether you love it or hate it before it's even finished.

I'm hugely fascinated by the trailer and the promise of the mix of reality and fantasy, and of different timelines.

Not only that of course, there's the on screen promise of Anthony Hopkins, Christian Slater and John Turturro on screen together, perhaps for me more so Christian Slater.

Of course there's also the allure of Hopkins writing and directing the film, which is perhaps the biggest draw of all. Here's the story:

Felix Bonhoeffer is a screenwriter who is nearing a breakdown of sorts. He's always lived his life in reality and in his own internal world, and now he's starting to see the two mix in his own reality, and he doesn't know what's happening.

Watching the trailer I caught that short clip of Kevin McCarthy from the original Invasion of the Body Snatchers caught up in a flashback to the film. Now that had me both confused and intrigued. I'm keen to see this.

What do you think after watching the trailer from Yahoo Movies [Flash]?



It looks very interesting and as a fan of Mr Hopkins I will make sure I check this out.

I flew out to the Seattle International Film Festival to see Hopkins present his film. I enjoyed it even though it is out there. You will either love it or hate it. Screen it with an open mind and I guarantee as soon as it is over, you will want to see it again. I'm looking forward to doing so. At the question and answer, Hopkins said the film is what you make of it, so be prepared to think and not be spoon fed. Check out my website for a slideshow of Hopkins at the screening.
