The trailer for Michel Gondry’s new film starring Mos Def and Jack Black was released yesterday. I’ll definitely be seeing it, if only because its a Gondry film. 

Jerry (Jack Black), a junkyard worker who attempts to sabotage a power plant that he believes is melting his brain. But when his plan goes awry, the magnetic field that he creates accidentally erases all of the videotapes in a local video store where his best friend Mike (Mos Def) works. Fearing that the mishap will cost Mike his job, the two friends team up to keep the store’s only loyal customer – a little old lady with a tenuous grasp on reality – from realizing what has happened by recreating and re-filming every movie that she decides to rent.

That looks incredible… I can’t wait.

It sounds like the dumbest plot ever, but has the potential to be amazing…

Comment by Kenny

If the plot were just the two of them re-enacting old movies, I think it would wear pretty thin pretty quickly. But the fact that they become micro-celebrities because of their films is a pretty cool idea.
