Latest Movie News Headlines

Richard Linklater finished shooting Before Midnight with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy last night

Sep. 5, 2012by: Alex Maidy

It boggles my mind that some movies can be made in a matter of days while others take months to complete, sometimes years. What makes my jaw drop is that just a few weeks ago, Ethan Hawke was discussing the possibility of a third movie to follow BEFORE SUNRISE and BEFORE SUNSET, the indie romances starring him and Julie Delpy and directed by Richard Linklater. Today, Deadline is reporting that not only is the movie real but it has already finished filming. Last night, to be exact.

BEFORE MIDNIGHT follows the same plot of the first two films. Lovers Celine and Jesse meet and spend a short period of time talking and falling deeper into love. The films feel very unscripted and off the cuff, but you genuinely believe that Hawke and Delpy are romantically involved.

BEFORE SUNRISE was released in 1995 and followed the two as they met on a train headed to Vienna. The sequel, which was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay in 2004, follows them as they meet 9 years later in Paris. BEFORE MIDNIGHT will find the pair in Greece, rekindling yet again.

The trio of Linklater, Delpy, and Hawke issued this statement: “It’s great to be back together again, this time in beautiful Greece to revisit the lives of Celine and Jesse nine years after Jesse was about to miss his flight.”

I am very much looking forward to seeing if this film lives up to its predecessors. All three feel like segments of a single film and I would watch these two actors play these roles until they reached retirement age.

BEFORE MIDNIGHT will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this week. A wide release will surely follow.

Extra Tidbit: I would love to see these two win the Oscar this year.

This just in; Before Afternoon finished filming this morning. What?

No but seriously, this is a film series that should go on for a long time to come. The many years in between each installment is what makes this (among many things) so great.

Thank you God, I literally could not be more excited. In all of the infinite AJ's that Einstein proposes exist in an infinite amount of universes, there is no version of me that's more excited. My two favorite films. Thank you God.

I love how they make these movies with all the production bullshit set aside. Just a great script, a handful of talented artists, a camera and some beautiful surroundings. What more do you need?

Not only is it finished but it's premiering at TIFF? What the -- !? This is great news but very much a shocker. Can't wait to see these two roaming the streets of Greece. This is going to be a beautiful film.

So I've never seen the first two.

But I've always wanted to. And it seems a perfect time to now, seeing as it'll all be wrapped up with a nice trilogy bow.

I LOVE the first 2, but one thing bothers me.....*Spoilers*

So they're only spending a short amount of time together?....With how Before Sunset ended, you'd think they'd be together now and living together....Hell, even married now.

Maybe "Midnight" ends with a proposal? I wouldn't put it outside the realm of possibility.

It takes 8 years for that to happen even though they love each other so much?

possible SPOILERS!!!!! sorry

The last movie ended on a much happier note than the first. It seemed like he was gonna stay with her. I was really thinking that if they did a third movie, it would follow them in a relationship, or at a rutt in the relationship. Anyway, i love the movies and can't wait to see this new one

I am very much looking forward to this. The first two were both great films and the chemistry between Ethan and Julie feels completely natural. They don't feel like movies at all.
