While we’re in the last throes of the winter season cinematic blahs, there is a lot to look forward to this spring and summer, and we’re not just talking eyeball-bursting blockbusters. New films from Park Chan-Wook, Woody Allen, Richard Linklater and Terrence Malick are on the horizon, and joining those auteurs is none other than Pedro Almodovar, and a bigger bite of his upcoming “I’m So Excited” has landed.
The official website for the movie has launched and it brings with it a generous batch of photos which show that the comedy will certainly be colorfully over-the-top — we would expect nothing less. But it also has a few more treats, including four soundtrack cuts by the always excellent composer Alberto Iglesias (“The Skin I Live In,” “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy“) along with an eclectic cover of Beethoven‘s “Fur Elise” by Peruvian group Los Destellos.
Up above you’ll see a quick snap of longtime Almodovar collaborators Penelope Cruz and Antonio Banderas, while below you’ll get a glimpse of the ensemble that includes Javier Cámara, Cecilia Roth, Lola Dueñas, Raul Arévalo, Carlos Areces, Antonio de la Torre, Hugo Silva, Willy Toledo, Miguel Ángel Silvestre, Blanca Suárez, José Luis Torrijo, José María Yazpik, Laya Martí and Paz Vega. The film opens on March 8th in Spain and later this year in North America via Sony Pictures Classics.
