Pedro Almodóvar's I'm So Excited teaser does indeed tease
Once you've watched the teaser for Pedro Almodóvar's I'm So Excited you'll feel teased, perhaps a little in the wrong way but definitely teased. If you know anything of Almodóvar you'll know that to take the teaser at face value and dismiss it is wrong, and if you don't know his work then consider that the guidance on how to view the teaser.
It is a cracking teaser that I've watched a number of times, mainly because it auto plays and when I load up the browser it's off and running, but I've still been enjoying it every time I see it and after I do I want to know more.
Pedro Almodóvar has written and directed films such as Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!, Live Flesh, All About My Mother, Talk to Her, Volver, Broken Embraces and The Skin I Live In, so now you should be perking up if you didn't realise who he was before, and if you didn't then go and see some of those films!
The article from The Guardian tells us that I'm So Excited marks a return to comedy for Almodóvar, as if you didn't already guess, and will be released in the UK on the 3rd of May next year. The release run begins with Spain on the 8th of March although it doesn't seem to be hitting America until the end of next year in a few limited releases.
The film will deliver a number of actors from his previous films, including a few cameos from the bigger names, and focuses on the people aboard a flight heading to Mexico City who are facing a life threatening situation. The people on board begin to open up to each other in fear of death and reveal some surprising truths about themselves and, as the teaser suggests, there will be musical interludes to lighten the moods of the passengers.
The teaser for I'm So Excited features one of those interludes and is rather amusing. I can't wait for a fuller trailer, here it is through TrailerAddict.
