Pedro Almodovar: I’m So Excited Trailer

descendantspedroalmodovarThere are few directors out there that can do camp like Spain’s Pedro Almodovar.  Es la pura verdad.  Get a glimpse of Almodovar’s new flick titled “I’m So Excited.”

The teaser looks to be fueled by sexual overtones and gay glee.

It may not be OSCAR material but, in our humble opinion, this looks, to us, as if this will be a laugh from start to finish for the man responsible for the meteoric rise of Spanish cross-over Hollywood fixtures like Penelope Cruz, Antonio Banderas and Hugo Silva – who also star in the film.

Expect a 2013 installment to a art theater near you.

Madonna Takes Lourdes to Nine!

Mother and Daughter Take in Nine NY Premiere

Rob Marshall’s big screen adaptation of “Nine” promised to be a big end of the season bang.  What with the entire cast expected including Fergie’s significant other – Josh Duhamel, it couldn’t possibly be anything other than intense.  As such, photographers commenced their line-up list at midnight for a six o’clock arrivals event. 

Over the top?  Possibly.

The event did not disappoint, Fergie, Josh Duhamel (who ran off so as to not steal his squeezes thunder,) Marion Cotillard with beau (who also ran off,) Kate Hudson with mom Goldie Hawn (sans ex A-Rod,)  Penelope Cruz, Pedro Almodovar, Nicole Kidman, Daniel Day Lewis and Dame Judi Dench all paid their stop-and-repeat dues. 

But when Madonna turned up with her daughter Lourdes Leon the press line erupted into literal screams of OMFG!  I kid you not, those were the exact words out of one of my colleagues upon Madge’s entrance onto the red-carpet.  “I can’t wait to see this,” Madonna stated.  Girl can steal a spotlight.
