[Movie] Trailer Tuesday!

Happy [Movie] Trailer Tuesday! This week I’ll try to keep it short on account of last Tuesday’s trailer explosion. First up is Last Night starring Kiera Knightly, Sam Worthington (Avatar), and Eva Mendes. It explores the life altering temptations that married couples face when apart. Second is Friends with Benefits with Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake. Looks like a little something Portman and Kutcher did earlier this year, but Friends seems to up them on the comedy factor. Looks hilarious. And third, a nod to a dramedy about two African-American families, from two very different socioeconomic backgrounds, coming together to celebrate a wedding in Jumping the Broom. I’m just glad it’s not a Tyler Perry movie and hope it isn’t a total plotline flop like Just Wright. Enjoy!

“The Craziest Guy in the Room”

Platon, who has photographed his share of daunting subjects that include Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe, Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, said Gaddafi was different. “He was vacant. There was no emotion, there was no spirit. It was void of something. When you come face to face with that it’s overwhelming, and that’s what I was trying to get in the picture.”

After the shoot, Platon said, “He put his hand on his heart to say thank you, and I did the same. And then, elegantly, he walked away.”

Platon then caught a glimpse of Gaddafi’s speech. “It was written in red crayon, in giant letters, like a six-year-old kid would write it. And it was written on about twenty pieces of tatty paper torn out of a book, in Arabic. It felt like notes of a madman.”
