Upcoming Movies: Jarmusch, Woody Allen, Under the Skin

THE LOCAL ARTHOUSE showed some trailers of note last night before the feature Nymphomaniac Vol. I (last post).  First off is a new Jim Jarmusch film, Only Lovers Left Alive — his take on the vampire genre — which is interesting in that he’s taking a genre at all.  I’m not sure we need another vampire film, but I am a BIG fan of Jim Jarmusch — so I’m excited to see it upon release in my area (click for site & trailer):

Next, John Turturro wrote and directed Fading Gigolo, which, surprise surprise, features Woody Allen acting in a film that, watching the preview, I assumed was a Woody Allen film — it had that comic flavor.  VERY unusual to see Woody Allen acting — or indeed involved at all — in a film he did not make.  It looks a little silly and simple, but it could be fun.

And then there’s the ever-inceasingly-ballyhooed Under The Skin starring Scarlett Johansson — this indie is making such a splash that the local, very mainstream, very commercial classic rock station’s DJ just mentioned it.  As you can see at its site, it has received a lot of advance critical praise.

Here’s hoping all three of these indies offer big entertainment value.
