A SENSUAL LIFE: “Fifty Shades of Grey” official trailer

 


FIFTY SHADES OF GREY – First official trailer: OK, so I refused to read the book because it didn’t sound like my thing. But the trailer looks kinda hot, no?

Take a look and leave a comment below. Did they get the cast right? Who would you have put in the roles? And will you see the movie?

LUSCIOUS AT THE MOVIES: The “other” Saint Laurent film trailer with Gaspard Ulliel as Yves Saint Laurent

 

 Sorry, no English subtitles!

 

It’s odd seeing this trailer, having recently watched the rival 2014 Yves Saint Laurent movie starring Pierre Niney and Guillaume Gallienne, as YSL and Pierre Berge respectively. Read more about it here.

This alternate film, called simply Saint Laurent, is due for release in September. It’s co-written and directed by Bertrand Bonello, and starring Gaspard Ulliel as Yves Saint Laurent, Jérémie Renier as Pierre Bergé and Louis Garrel as Jacques de Bascher. Read more about it here.

Are you so devoted to fashion that you will see both? I know it sounds a bit silly when they look identical, but I probably will!

MUSIC TO SCROLL BY: The soundtrack to The Book Thief by John Williams

 

 

 

THE BOOK THIEF: We’ve been playing this soundtrack a LOT at Chez Luscious – it’s simply divine. Thanks to John Williams for composing such a beautiful score.

Do make sure you read the book by Markus Zusak and see the film, directed by Brian Percival and starring Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson, and Sophie Nélisse. It’s very touching.

Why not play this in the background as you scroll through the rest of the Luscious website?

LUSCIOUS AT THE MOVIES: The Gone Girl trailer

 

 

 

Oooh, the first trailer for The Gone Girl is here! It stars Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, and Neil Patrick Harris, and is directed by David Fincher.

I only read the book by Gillian Flynn recently, and was completely hooked. Can’t wait to see the film!

MUSIC TO SCROLL BY: The Holiday soundtrack – Hans Zimmer – Maestro

The Holiday - film and soundtrack

We play music from a lot of soundtracks in our home – Mr Luscious is very savvy at pulling out the best tracks from the most popular to the most obscure films.

This opening track from the 2006 film The Holiday starring Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, Jude Law and Jack Black is always a winner with me: it stars slowly and develops into a bubbling, happy point which never fails to inspire me…
