Love trailer surprises
I was surprised by the trailer for Love, it's a set-up for a story I've had in my head for a long time (don't worry I'm not one of those people who screams "I thought of that" and then sues!) but I could never find the right hook, and in Love I'm curious to find out what that hook is, for the trailer does suggest something rather unusual and almost 2001-esque.
While the film itself seems to be smaller than you'd think, the trailer doesn't suggest that, and as it gets under its own steam there are some truly gorgeous moments in it. In some ways it looks like a high-end music video with a strong story to it.
Love might not be what you think from the title, here's the blurb to explain some more:
After losing contact with Earth, Astronaut LEE MILLER becomes stranded in orbit alone aboard the International Space Station. As time passes and life support systems dwindle, Lee battles to maintain his sanity - and simply stay alive. His world is a claustrophobic and lonely existence, until he makes a strange discovery aboard the ship. Driven by the powerful music of ANGELS and AIRWAVES, LOVE explores the fundamental human need for connection and the limitless power of hope... A high-impact visual adventure, that resonates a common truth, that everyone has a story to tell and something even greater to leave behind.
See what I mean? Not what you expected at all is it? Well now you need to head over and watch the trailer, it's gorgeous, confusing, and delivers some wonderful questions about the story. I am confused but at the same time I'm really intrigued, and those visuals and the music.
This is William Eubank's first role as director, previously having worked as a cinematographer, and it shows. He also wrote the story and looks as though he was involved in quite a few areas of the film, as you do on smaller productions.
I've not seen any of the previous trailers, and I don't think I want to for fear of losing the power and visual impact of this one. Suffice to say it looks fantastic.
You can see the trailer for Love over at Apple Trailers, and I suggest you do.
