Here‘s a trailer for “My Sassy Girl,” Yann Samuell’s remake of the beloved Korean romantic comedy of the same name about a nutty, mildly sadistic girl and the guy who falls for her. Elisha Cuthbert and Jesse Bradford play the pair in this version, which doesn’t look terrible Samuell’s well-suited for this film, having previously made the nutty, mildly sadistic French romantic comedy (which might be a bit of a misnomer) “Love Me If You Dare” with Marion Cotillard. Before he took over this project, Gurinder Chadha (of “Bend It Like Beckham”) had been originally attached to direct. No release date yet.
And here‘s a trailer for “The Tracey Fragments,” featuring Ellen Page reprising her preternaturally world-weary teenager thing for darker, non-linear purposes. This film was actually made before “Juno,” and had its premiere at last year’s Berlin Film Festival, where it pleased some and completely irritated others. It opens May 9th.
