Looking for something to make you smile today? Well, Sony Classics released a teaser for Pedro Almodovar’s new comedy “I’m So Excited” and thanks to the Pointer Sisters the minor subtitles at the beginning really aren’t necessary.
The film reunites Almodovar’s BFF Penelope Cruz and Antonio Banderas (who received critical acclaim for his work in Almodovar’s “The Skin I Live In”) and Paz Vega (Almodovar’s “Talk to Her”), but until now we knew little about the film’s plot. That’s still the case, but this new preview seems to indicate the legendary filmmaker is having more fun behind the camera than he has in decades.
HitFix and In Contention’s Guy Lodge will have a report on the Academy’s London tribute to Almodovar Thursday night sometime this weekend. In the meantime, enjoy the new teaser for “I’m So Excited” embedded below as well as a look back at a quintessential classic 80’s music video.
“I’m So Excited” will open in Spain on March 8, but currently isn’t schedule for a U.S. release until Nov. 22, 2013.
