This first trailer for Luc Besson's The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc Sec is simply amazing! I've been following this film since I first heard about it, and it looks like it's going to be a fantastic adventure film. I'm 100% sold on seeing this movie and I hope to high heaven that it gets a U.S. release date. It's got a talking gentleman mummy for cryin' out loud!
The movie is a serial-inspired action-adventure that stars the beautiful Louise Bourgoin in the title role, and here is the synopsis of the story.
The year is 1912. Adèle Blanc-Sec, an intrepid young reporter, will go to any lengths to achieve her aims, including sailing to Egypt to tackle mummies of all shapes and sizes.
Meanwhile, in Paris, it's panic stations! A 136 million-year old pterodactyl egg on a shelf in the natural history museum has mysteriously hatched, and the bird subjects the city to a reign of terror from the skies. But nothing fazes Adèle Blanc-Sec, whose adventures reveal many more extraordinary surprises...
Set in the carefree world before World War I, Adèle Blanc-Sec's adventures see the brave young woman fearlessly battling crooks, corrupt politicians, demon worshipers and mad scientists. Legendary cartoonist Jacques Tardi's original stories perfectly recreate the intrigue, romance and excitement of one of the most tumultuous periods in history.
Adapted and directed by Luc Besson (Arthur and the Minimoys, The Fifth Element, The Professional), Adèle's exhilarating, funny and fabulous adventures will be one of the most eagerly anticipated releases of 2010.
Now please watch this great little trailer and tell us what you think! The trailer is in French, so I had no idea what was being said, but I got the gist of it. Enjoy! Oh yeah! There is a very brief nude scene.
