Tokyo Trailer!

This is an excellent little trailer for Tokyo!, which until yesterday I had not even heard about. The film will include three shorts from the likes of Michel Gondry (we all know him, yes?), South Korean filmmaker Joon-ho Bong (The Host) and French director Leos Carax. I’ve never seen any films from Carax (apparently, his last film was 1999’s Pola X), but just the involvement of Gondry getting back to flexing his creative muscles has set my excitement for this at an extremely high level. Early word from the film had it pegged as a “nastier Eastern sibling to Paris, Je T’aime,” and called Gondry’s short, “arguably the best.” The trailer looks visually stunning, and anything that uses the city of Tokyo as its backdrop has me sold from the beginning. Also, the use of Tokyo Police Club during the trailer was a nice touch as well.
