Be Kind, Rewind

Be Kind, Rewind

The picture above is from Michel Gondry’s new movie, Be Kind, Rewind, and I’m reallllllllly excited.
It stars Jack Black, Mos Def, Danny Glover, Mia Farrow and Sigourney Weaver.
The movie is about:

Jerry (Jack Black) is a junkyard worker who attempts to sabotage a power plant he suspects of causing his headaches. But he inadvertently causes his brain to become magnetized, leading to the unintentional destruction of the movies in his friend’s (Danny Glover) store. In order to keep the store’s one loyal customer, an elderly lady with a tenuous grasp on reality, the pair re-create a long line of films including The Lion King, Rush Hour, Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, When We Were Kings, Driving Miss Daisy, and Robocop, putting themselves and their townspeople into it. They become the biggest stars in their neighborhood.

Maybe this will be a High Fidelity-esque Jack Black and he won’t be really annoying?! I can only hope.
