500 Days trailer

01.19.2009

If you're ready for it, I'm about to make a few bold proclamations. 1. Though it's only January, this teaser trailer for 500 DAYS OF SUMMER will be one of my favorite trailers of 2009. The music, the pacing, the unconventional voiceover and, perhaps most impressive, it made me really want to go see a romantic comedy.

2. When I'm out in social situations people always ask me questions like "Who's gonna win the Oscar?" and "What's the big Sundance hit this year?" I have no idea about the former (THE CURIOUS CASE OF MILK WRESTLING WITH THE DARK KNIGHT?) but I think I have my answer on the latter. 500 DAYS OF SUMMER will wind up being a big hit later this year.

3. Zooey Deschanel is absolutely adorable. Watch the teaser below and I defy you to think otherwise.

The song is "Sweet Disposition - The Temper Trap".

It's funny to see how people react on something that's a bit different. Even the music. You do realize it's an alternative indie-film, huh guys?

OH, ZOOEY!

I don't want to watch this trailer. Not because I won't like it, but because I'm afraid I'll have an even BIGGER crush on Zooey Deschannel. And then reality will slap me acrosss the face saying, "That's impossible!" And then I'll wallow in self pity, in a corner, knowing that cute lil' Zooey isn't in my reach. Why, cruel world, WHY??!!

hmmm

I like that they use that retro "repeat the movie title the whole way through the trailer" element, but that's about it. That song is awful (IMO) and so is the use of the voice with the footage they're showing. If the movie were anything like this trailer, no thanks. Luckily, the trailer hints at some really cool stuff, has Zooey and The Gord, but wow, it doesn't make me want to see this at all.

PS - Mike, how did you like this trailer and not Juno? This is mighty precious stuff.

Nice trailer

It was like one of those old grindhouse trailers where they keep repeating the movie title throughout. Looks good.

Only two stars (hamburgers) in the trailer-section? That's nuts! Just like the fantastic song they used, this trailer won me over in one simple second.

Levitt, imo is one of the most talented actors of his generation, no doubt, I know thereís a large group of people who ainít convinced yet Ö but maybe they didnít saw the right movies. Dunno. But hey, nobody believed in Ledger when his Joker-news first came out, some (including me) did. Levitt is going to be big in a few years, mark my

And ofcours, thereís Deschanel, she kinda always makes my day.

I'm lovin' it. I'm in.

Really? While the trailer was kinda cool, the repeated (500) days of summer title was pretty bad. So was the voiceover which didn't fit at all (perhaps intentional, but why?). Overall still looking forward to it though.
