Day -1 | JCVD

Day -1 | JCVD

The festival doesn’t start until tomorrow, but the Croisette already looks festival styles, with promotional posters and displays all over, and locals stalking celebritorial prey. I’ve spent most of today in the basement of the Palais helping churn out the first edition of the Cannes Market News, which indieWIRE is writing a daily section of, but got out enough to see this:

Unfortunately, when I went online to look up what the hell this was (Was the film actually called JCVD, as in Jean-Claude Van-Damme? Or does it have some unshown name and just simply stars J.C.V.D.? Or did it stand for something else somehow… um,”Jesus Christ, Venereal Disease” and just happen to star a “star” of the same initials?), and its already been blogged all over, Croisette poster photo and all. But I’m joining in anyway, because, seriously: JCVD is a biopic about Jean-Claude, with Jean-Claude playing himself. Its selling in the Cannes Market, and thank god, it has a teaser trailer:

Oh, JCVD… your career isn’t over yet. And trailer makers, way to misspell “lose”: “I didn’t loose yet!”
