UPDATE: Now with English subtitles. Well worth another look. Picture quality is better too, actually.
I won’t make any bones about it – I think this first full trailer for Luc Besson‘s The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc Sec looks simply superb. I’ve embedded the trailer below the break and fully recommend you check it out.
Meanwhile, the film’s offical English language web site has launched. A lot of it is still “coming soon”, but you can check out the a synopsis and some character art from the original Jacques Tardi comics.
The synopsis is housed as part of a virtual newspaper which also notes “How plentiful they will be, the bonuses and videos that The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc Sec website will make available via the advertising pillar”. Clicking on the ‘advertising pillar’ on the main street-scene, I was indeed given access to an interactive roster of vids… though almost all were still “coming soon”. Disappointing.
There’s a glimpse of bare breasts around the 1:55 mark, so watch out if you’re at work.
