Pedro Almodovar’s “I’m So Excited!” will open the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 13. This will be the North American premiere of the film. Watch the trailer below.
The film, which takes place on a troubled cross-Atlantic flight where the flamboyant crew tries to keep passengers calm as the pilot struggles to land the plane safely, boasted the director’s highest box-office opening in his native Spain back in March.
Artistic director David Ansen stated that Almodovar is “the cinematic gift that keeps on giving,” and that “it’s a pleasure to present his latest comic treasure.”
“I’m So Excited!” will hit theaters on June 28, via Sony Pictures Classics.
LAFF runs June 13-23 in downtown Los Angeles.
