REMEMBER ME trailer
I can’t wait to see NEW MOON, so I can simultaneously swoon over Robert Pattinson’s good looks and laugh at how ridiculous the abstinent glittery vampire storyline is. I may be missing the point, but we’ve already got a review up, so let a girl have her fun. As NEW MOON hits the theaters, Summit Entertainment is prepping yet another Robert Pattinson vehicle that will surely get the ladies into theater seats, the romantic drama REMEMBER ME.
REMEMBER ME is the story of Tyler (Pattinson), a brooding, rebellious college student living in New York City. Tyler has a troubled relationship with his wealthy father (Pierce Brosnan), who seems to think that money can replace his presence in his children’s life. Tyler finds love with Ally (Emilie de Ravin), a classmate who just so happens to be the daughter of a police officer (Chris Cooper) that he just had an altercation with. A tale of star-crossed lovers dealing with family tragedies ensues.
Check out the trailer and my thoughts on it after the jump!
I didn’t make it past the first thirty seconds before I became a little upset with this trailer. I guess from his knowledge of Ghandi quotes and his friends’ commentary, we are supposed to infer that Tyler is introspective and a deep thinker. It’s only the trailer, but I already feel overwhelmed with the filmmakers trying to establish this guy’s character. I also take issue with Ally, the manic pixie dreamgirl who is so quirky she eats dessert first. I’m hoping that there are more to these characters than these feeble attempts to make them look interesting.
REMEMBER ME is directed by Allen Coulter, who directed HOLLYWOODLAND, as well as episodes of “The Sopranos,” “Sex and the City,” and “Rome.” Jenny Lumet, writer of RACHEL GETTING MARRIED, and Will Fetters wrote the screenplay. Jenny Lumet’s writing credit is one of the reasons I will be seeing this movie, as I really enjoyed RACHEL GETTING MARRIED.
REMEMBER ME opens in theaters on March 12, 2010.
