Trailers for 'The Artist' and 'Get Low'

I was recently made aware of a film currently making some noise at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival called The Artist. It is a silent film written and directed by Michael Hazanavicius and is set in Hollywood in 1927. It tells the story of George Valentin (Jean Dujardin), a silent movie superstar, whose career is threatened by the rise of talkies. For a young extra, Peppy Miller (Berenice Bejo), suddenly the sky is the limit. The trailer is very moving and this is certainly one to keep an eye out for!

Before Water for Elephants I was distracted from my vigorous texting at the time to take notice of the Get Low trailer. This was a film that proved to be very popular overseas when it was released late last year and Robert Duvall nearly earned himself an Oscar Nomination for his role. The fantastic trailer has me intrigued, and it is set for release in Sydney on May 26. Be sure to check it out!


  1. "Get Low" was one of my favorite films of last year.

    Heads up - saw "Pirates" tonight .... awful.

  2. I am very excited about Get Low, as i will be seeing it soon. Great post!

  3. Ill be seeing it next Thursday most likely. I have heard great things. @ Sam, I can imagine how bad it is going to be. I'll be giving it a go though.
