If you're a regular reader you know I've been excited about this film ever since it was announced, so I couldn't wait to share the trailer with you.
Although the film was made in English, it's a big deal for Italy to see this get made so its no surprise the trailer first aired on Italian TV and will premiere there first. The only real problem with this teaser preview via Italian media is, it's not your typical trailer as we've come to expect them: no title, no announcement of when it premieres, etc and it looks sort of cut off at the end.
Despite the sound, it's a great preview of what's to come. (Don't be put off by the trailer screen image - remember it's Basile.)
Featuring a great array of ensemble talent including Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel, John C. Reilly, Toby Jones, Stacy Martin, Alba Rohrwacherand Massimo Ceccherini, the film is a loose screen adaptation of the fairy tales by Italian poet Giambattista Basile.
"The Tale Of Tales" opens in Italy on May 14th. (source)By the way, this fairy tale film, in case you had any doubts: definitely not for kids.
