I know "blockbusters" open in Summer, but I am not digging the line-up this year. I have grown mostly indifferent to Summer movies over the years, but this season seems especially dry. Almost none grab me, and I may even pass on Natalie Portman in Thor. It's a sign of sinister times if even Natalie cannot get me to the theater.
However, someone else may. Several blogs I follow covered Rachel McAdams' new Elle interview, which I cannot not wait to read. I think she is a great actor and personality. Also, the interview reminded me of the Woody Allen film she made, Midnight in Paris. While I am not nerdy for Allen (although I hold a fondness for Annie Hall), this looks cute. It follows a couple in Paris (Rachel and Owen Wilson), and also features Marion Cotillard, Michael Sheen, Kathy Bates, Adrien Brody, and Carla Bruni.
The story and idea of Rachel with Owen Wilson, also looks promising. Personally I am not a relationship person, but they still fascinate me. Observing couples' chemistry and interactions remains a favorite interest of mine. Sick, huh? Just kidding.
Finally, the movie takes place in Paris! Paris is my favorite place I have never been to.
Here is the trailer? Will you see it?
