Quiet in San Fran11 May 2008

I'm not usually swayed to see a movie just because of who's in it. But sometimes the casting seems so inspired that I admit to being a little curious. A few such movies are just around the corner:

  • Bubba Ho-Tep: the trailer and poster hilariously proclaim that Bruce Campbell is Elvis and Ossie Davis is J.F.K.;
  • Party Monster: Macaulay Culkin as a cross-dressing, drug-using raver (!), Seth Green, Chloë Sevigny, and cameos by folks like Marilyn Manson;
  • and Lost in Translation: Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson in Sofia Coppola's second movie.

Yes, I'm usually disappointed in the final result. Usually the high concept of a cool pairing doesn't carry the movie, but at least Lost in Translation has a few more things going for it. We'll see.
