Alfie Vs. Alfie: the ‘Sleuth’ Trailer

Alfie Vs. Alfie: the 'Sleuth' Trailer

Maybe it will collapse under the expectations, but I have to say, I’m really excited about the October release of Sleuth. Directed by Kenneth Branagh from a screenplay adaptation by Harold Pinter, and starring Michael Caine and Jude Law, it sounds like a Brit-theater dream. I’ll be curious to see what stage-adapting Branagh does with British stage legend Pinter’s words. And to have Caine and Law face-off for the first time since the 2000 Academy Awards (Caine won), will be a treat. And, oh yeah, Caine created the Alfie character which Law updated decades later. Small-world trivia note: Harold Pinter was once married to original Alfie co-star Vivien Merchent. Get a glimpse of this film now, and watch the trailer.
