My goodness, this film looks more amazing every time I see more about it. This was going to be a short post: new trailers, new poster, few screen shots - done - but no. There is a TON of new stuff released about this movie and I have to share it all (ok - not all, this post would have been twice as long and I didn't include the gorier stuff so you can feel OK about scrolling if you have family or work mates around.)
These trailers ARE both safe for work and kids by the way, so no worries there (a little blood and dirt and some skin but nothing too terrible). Here they are:
HERE and I'm including a few badly translated excerpts for you:
I am so very curious to see what conversations and discussions this film inspires! (Or perhaps, incites would be a better word.)
Here's a bunch more stills which bring us more intriguing story information (I've left the most bloody and explicit ones out):
I'm also including screen caps from the new WEBSITE HERE to give you more of an idea of the synopsis and different stories involved/included. (It's in Italian but if you use a translator you can understand most of it). I recommend clicking on the images so you can read the story descriptions. There's more on the website too, about the girl and the ogre. There are a TON MORE photos on the official website too - all the ones included in this post are just a sampling (seriously!).
And here are some costume designs...
A list of locations used, which was a closely guarded secret for the whole production (wow! They're going to have "Tale of Tales" tours around Italy in the future, I just know it!)...
And other random things I've found from Cannes reports and other places:
And my son ADORES this ridiculously cute giant flea (No he hasn't seen the trailers!, just the posters, and I also told him that there was a story about a man who raised a special giant flea he loved, being included in the film and wanted to see a photo):
And here's a bonus bunch of behind-the-scenes images (you can click to enlarge).
HERE if you want to like/ follow it as well.
What do you think? Is the film piquing your interest yet?
