Be Kind, Rewind follows a junkyard worker (played by Jack Black) who believes that a power plant is melting his brain. His plan to sabotage the plant goes wrong and he instead creates a magnetic field that erases all of the videotapes in the local video store where his best friend works. Fearing that the accident will cost his friend his job, the two team up to keep the store’s only loyal customer, a little old lady with a very loose grasp on reality, from realizing what has happened by re-creating and refilming every movie that she decides to rent, including Rush Hour 2, Robocop, Boyz In The Hood and Back to the Future. The movie also stars Danny Glover, Mia Farrow, and Mos Def.
And now thanks to TwitchFilm, we have the first production photo from the film, which can be seen above. Click on the photo to see it at a higher resolution. Rewind finished filming late last year, and this is the first we’ve seen of it. Why no movie trailer? We want more. You hear us Gondry?! We want more! Be Kind, Rewind hits theaters on April 4th 2008.
