New Perfect Sense Trailer: I Can't See Clearly Now!
Don't let singer-songwriter Johnny Nash anywhere near the new trailer for the Ewan McGregor movie The Perfect Sense, because it's a Contagion-style disaster film where everyone loses their senses one by one until they can't see, hear, smell, taste or -- I guess -- touch anything. It's a little hokey and a little hilarious, but with Eva Green (the best Bond girl of all time, period) in tow, there may be some genuine hope for this one. If only I could see or hear it!
I'm a Contagion defender, so I'm already engaged in the Michael Jackson facemask warfare at play here. I wish the gray landscapes and apocalyptic lovemaking didn't feel like an angsty storyline from a Matchbox 20 video, but McGregor and Green are a compatible, sexy duo. Far as I'm concerned, I'm waiting for some McGregor redemption after his dour, unbelievably dull A-plot in Beginners. Maybe Christopher Plummer should play a miraculous gay doctor who saves the whole movie, just in case.
Perfect Sense premiered at Sundance and costars Connie Nielsen, Ewen Bremner, Stephen Dillane, Denis Lawson, Alastair Mackenzie, and James Watson.
