Coming Soon But Not Soon Enough
#6 The Fountain (Warner Bros. No release date announced.)
The IMDB Page for this long awaited film from Darren Aronofsky (director of cult hit Pi and the visionary addiction drama Requiem for a Dream) says the following regarding its plot: "Spanning over one thousand years, and three parallel stories, The Fountain is a story of love, death, spirituality, and the fragility of our existence in this world."
OK... So, we know already that it's crazy ambitious. Or just crazy. Still, you've seen Requiem, right? Crazy is a good look for this filmmaker.
The cast is also interesting: Mrs. Aronofsky, also known as recent Oscar-winner Rachel Weisz, headlines with X-Man Hugh Jackman in all three of the movies timeframes. The supporting cast includes the great Broadway star Donna Murphy, Aronofsky regular Sean Gullette, and the legendary Ellen Burstyn.
Watch the trailer. Discuss: Disaster-to-be or future sci-fi masterpiece? We love the movies that walk tightropes without nets.
