Following up on my earlier post today about some of the most talked about movies from this year’s Sundance Film Festival, a trailer has just arrived online for Spike Jonze’s latest film I’m Here. If you’re wondering why you’ve never heard of this movie before, it’s because it’s actually a short film — 35 minutes to be exact. It stars Andrew Garfield (Boy A).
Now if you think it’s weird to see a trailer for a short film, well it’s even weirder to see a trailer for a short film that is sponsored by Absolut Vodka! It kinda makes the whole thing seem like a commercial for Absolut, and I’m sure there will be some who question the “artistic integrity” of such a thing. Still, if you’re a Spike Jonze fan, you can’t help but be mesmerized by the look of this short. It’s a love story about two rather clunky-looking robots, and the special effects are both wonderfully strange and blended seamlessly. I’m Here premieres tonight as part of the Shorts Program at Sundance, so I’m sure we’ll be hearing some reviews in the very near future. In the meantime, marvel at the genius of Spike Jonze after the jump!
