Irvine Welsh's Ecstasy trailer

Ecstasy.jpgI don't know why the film has the title "Irvine Welsh's Ecstasy", perhaps to put itself apart from another film called Ecstasy also being released, but surely just by including the author's name it will ensure extra coverage. Saying that, the trailer seems to have been released with little fanfare.

The film is adapted by Rob Heydon, who directs, Matt MacLennan, Paul McCafferty, and Ben Tucker, and features Adam Sinclair, Kristin Kreuk, Billy Boyd, Carlo Rota and Stephen McHattie in a cast that is more Canadian than Scottish despite the film being shot almost entirely in Edinburgh.

The trailer for doesn't really give us much and watching it you do feel that it's rather light on story and heavy on music and scenes of partying.

I'm really not convinced by the trailer other than seeing recognisable faces and seeing Kristen Kreuk in a film that promises to shed her Smallville image.

While I'm not convinced by the trailer, which is really just a snapshot of scenes from throughout the film with no real connection to each other, it does suggest that there could be a film to be had at the end of it. Here's hoping for a better trailer.
