Marie Antionette trailer
padawansguide was so kind as to post a link to the first trailer of the new Marie Antionette movie today. Looks pretty good so far, although why is Antionette running everywhere? :P

Quicktime trailer

I also discovered an interesting tidbit today that I didn't know - the costume designer for Marie Antionette is Milena Canonero, the costume designer of "Affair of the Necklace". It bodes well, n'est pas? :>

Ooh, I was just wondering who the costume designer was! That answers that! And it does bode well!

I liked the trailer! Fun!

Scary, Sophia Coppolia (Spelling) wrote and directed it. If it is anything like AotN it will have to be put on mute. And, why is an American always chosen to paly MA? Sorry about being negative about this but I can see this is geared to the shallow mod peeps. The best MA it still 1938 movie with Norma Shearer, with Adrian as designer.

Just a comment about the 1938 version...

I finally got to see it recently! (Oh TCM how I love thee!) Oh my gosh--those costumes are so gorgeously over-the-top. No wonder I love Adrian's designs so much. He was such a talented Hollywood designer. *sigh* I think Norma Shearer did a good job as MA too--she was such a lovely and talented actress.

Anyway, too much rambling and OT. :D

I must admit I'm not really expecting the movie to be watchible. I'm hoping it will be but I'm not excepting it. :> At least the costumes look interesting.

I haven't seen the Norma Shearer one yet, although I'd like to someday... she was such a great actress!

I'm really looking forward to some better close ups of the costumes from this film. I'm not a huge fan of Kirsten Dunst, and methinks this will probably be a film that I wait until it comes out on dvd to view. However, the costume fall-out could be fabulous!

I'll wait and see it the film makes it to the pothole in which I live. Depending on the rating I probably won't go out of my way to see it in the theater. We'll see.

I'll probably wait for the DVD too--the costumes in the trailer are amazing! I didn't know that they were making a Marie Antoinette movie. I might have heard about it but I forgot.

As long as Alexandra Byrne is banned, I'm happy... Except I liked her work in "Elizabeth" and "Finding Neverland", but I'm not too happy about her "modern twist to historical clothes, so they don't look like museum garbs". When she understands the period she's dealing with, it can be cool. When she doesn't.... Bleeeeeeh.

so they don't look like museum garbs
...and what is wrong with this? *rolls eyes*

*Ahem* First of all, may I say, Jenny, that it can't simply be coincidence that we are both Virginians and costumers (though your stuff beats mine like water over fire). I took the liberty of following the link after work. Costumes- WOWZERS. Kirsten Dunst- Radiant. New Wave Soundtrack and Movie logo- Weeeelll...I LIKE new wave but...It seems out of place in a strict period piece. That's one of the reasons I couldn't STAND "A Knight's Tale" even if I am a Queen Fiend and would watch Heath Ledger watch paint dry. Still...Maybe I need to knuckle down and make an 18th c. gown.

Yeah, I felt the same about the music... interesting choice. I hope this isn't one of those films that can't make up it's mind what it is and tries to please all the demographics groups. I hate those.

Oh yes do make an 18th century something - they are such fun! :>
