Be Kind Rewind trailer
The trailer for Michel Gondry’s latest flick, Be Kind Rewind, was just released after an early showing at the Comic-Con. It is apparently the story of two video store clerks — played by Jack Black and Mos Def — who end up remaking a lot of popular movies after all their VHS tapes are erased by some bizarre magnetic accident (maybe some Tesla coils involved, who knows). One may wonder why bother renting VHS tapes in the first place, but I am sure Michel Gondry will give us some very entertaining and post-modernistic explanation for this. After all, isolated funny moments saved The Science of Sleep. This new movie in any case is hardly something to be waiting for — the entire story is completely explored and saturated in these two minutes only, and unless Gondry has a really good screenplay, I cannot imagine how he could save this from becoming a collection of youtube fanfilms.
