See a fresh red band clip from Pierre Morel‘s From Paris With Love after the break, courtesy of My Space. It gives us a pretty good idea of the particular ‘types’ John Travolta and Jonathan Rhys Meyers have been allocated. There’s also a bit of swearing, some violence and a bit of business with a vase that I can’t quite understand.
Maybe I’m overthinking it. Perhaps he just wants to steal it?
I’m pretty sure this film is going to deliver the standard smart-daft Europacorp japes. If it’s one half as entertaining as Taken, we’re guaranteed a good night out at the pictures.

Following up on the earlier news about Pierre Morel (District B13, Taken) directing Dune, we now have the second trailer for his next feature, From Paris with Love. The film stars John Travolta and Jonathan Rhys Meyers, and concerns a young embassy worker who teams up with an unruly FBI agent to stop a terrorist attack in Paris. It’s pretty obvious who’s who. Luc Besson is also credited with the film’s story, not unlike many other films he produces. Instead of Besson’s regular screenwriting bud Robert Mark Kamen, Paris’s script was written by Adi Hasak.

I can’t remember the last live-action movie that John Travolta starred in that I actually enjoyed, or even wanted to see. His latest film, From Paris With Love is co-written and produced by Luc Besson (The Fifth Element), and directed by District B13 helmer Pierre Morel, tells the story of a young embassy worker and an American secret agent who cross paths while working on a high-risk mission in Paris. The movie co-stars Jonathan Rhys-Meyers.
The talent involved gives the project promise, but the plot description sounds rather generic, and some of the shots in this promotional trailer are iffy, at best. I’m not saying this film looks cool, but for some reason I’m actually interested in checking this one out. Leave your thoughts in the comments below but keep in mind that the film is still in production and this is a promotional trailer with unfinished effects/sound/everything. Thanks to Christopher M for the tip.

Warner Bros has pushed August Rush back from October 19th to Wednesday, November 21st.
The film will now go head to head with The Coen Brothers’ No Country for Old Men, Paul Thomas Anderson’s There Will Be Blood, the Jon Heder comedy Mama’s Boy, and the Frank Darabont adaptation of Stephen King’s The Mist. Seems to me that Warner has moved the film into a very unfavorable release date, which makes me wonder what the decision was made behind the scenes. Check out the film’s new theatrical movie poster to the right. Click on the photo to enlarge.
August Rush is a music-driven drama. A charismatic young Irish guitarist (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) and a sheltered young cellist (Keri Russell) have a chance encounter one magical night above New York’s Washington Square, but are soon torn apart, leaving in their wake an infant, orphaned by circumstance. Years later, performing on the streets of New York and cared for by a mysterious stranger (Robin Williams) who gives him the name August Rush, the child (Freddie Highmore) uses his remarkable musical talent to seek the parents from whom he was separated at birth.
