“Adam” (2009)

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on July 22, 2009 by kaye

Theatrical trailer for Adam, starring super-cute Hugh Dancy (Confessions of a Shopaholic). He plays the title character who has Aspergers, the same disorder that Christopher Boone has in Mark Haddon’s novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. Anyone who has read the book should have an idea of how Aspergers works and the social disabilities of someone who has this disorder.

Adam is going to be released under Fox Searchlight Pictures, which also produced several popular indie films such as Juno, Slumdog Millionaire, Little Miss Sunshine and (500) Days of Summer, among others, as well as the upcoming Whip It! and Post Grad. It is also, unfortunately, unlikely to be released here in the Philippines.

…but I really, really want to see this. It looks like a really good film, and I’m a sucker for romances.

102cTen films I have to see before the end of the year. All trailers can be found on www.apple.com/trailers, and, of course, YouTube.

  1. Sherlock Holmes. This one isn’t coming out until Christmas, but I’m sure that it will be worth the wait. This one will star Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, so it’ll be a double treat for me. Happy Christmas!!
  2. Public Enemies. I’m not quite sure what this is about, but it’s supposed to be really good and Johnny Depp’s in it. This is one JD I have faith in. He’s one of my favourite actors, so I’m not gonna let this one slide.
  3. The Hangover. A film about a post-bachelor party gone wrong, this is supposed to be the funniest film of the summer. I’m not sure when it’s coming out in the Philippines, but the trailer is hilarious and I have to make sure I see it.
  4. Fame. This is a remake of the 80’s show. I think that it’s a more modern version, since reworking the film but keeping the time setting would be sort of redundant. I haven’t seen the original, but I’ll make sure I do before watching this.
  5. The Boat That Rocked. This one’s coming out in August and I’m excited. It’s supposed to be a trip, especially since it’s made by the same people who made Love Actually. Bill Nighy’s in it, too.
  6. The Soloist. Here’s another Robert Downey Jr. film. This already came out in the US a few last month, but I don’t think it’s been released in the Philippines yet. If it has, I’m gonna throw a fit.
  7. Up. This is supposed to be Pixar’s latest, I think, and it’s coming out this summer. The trailer is hilarious and the storyline is really unique and interesting.. everything that Pixar is about.
  8. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. I absolutely hate the producers for putting such a long delay on this one. As a Harry Potter fan I don’t think that this needs an explanation.
  9. Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian. I don’t think I’ll be able to see this in cinemas unless I nag my parents to the bone (but that might make things worse), but I heard that this one is funny as hell, so I’ll make sure I find a way to watch it somehow.
  10. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. My summer would be incomplete without this one.

Of course, there are other films that are on my watchlist: Bruno, Little AshesHow To Be, Adventureland and (I just found out about this about 60 seconds ago) The Final Destination aka the 4th film.

The year may be almost halfway done, but there’s still a lot in store in the film department.
