This cautionary tale about gene splicing and playing God in the laboratory stars Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley as a pair of biochemists who push the envelope. The new trailer does a good job of setting the table for people unfamiliar with the movie, but then sits down for dinner, clears the dishes and starts on the clean up.
Warner Bros. has scheduled the release of the Sundance favorite starring Adrien Brody and Sarah Polly as a pair of brilliant biochemists who learn the hard way what happens when you try to create half-human hybrids in a petri dish.
"Midnight in Paris," which already stars Owen Wilson, Marion Cotillard, Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates, Michael Sheen and French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, will follow a family traveling through France on vacation. Included in the party is a young couple who are forced to rethink their lifestyle.
Wilson's character will find himself in the enviable position of being in a love triangle (this being Woody Allen, after all) with McAdams and Cotillard, while Brody' character has been described as "flashy" by The Hollywood Reporter.
Allen is currently at Cannes, where he premiered "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger," starring Naomi Watts, Josh Brolin, Anthony Hopkins and Antonio Banderas, to mixed reviews.
Brody can next be seen in "Splice," in which he and Sarah Polly play a pair of bio-engineers who learn the hard way about the dangers of mixing human DNA with other lifeforms. That movie comes out June 4. On a related note, if you missed Brody in criminally overlooked "Brothers Bloom," add it to your Netflix cue.
"Midnight in Paris begins shooting this summer in France with an eye toward a 2011 release.
