New York, I Love You

August 22, 2009

If you’re looking for a different kind of love story to see at the theaters this fall, look no further than New York, I Love You.  The film tells 12 different love stories, featuring an all-star cast. The film was created by the same producers of Paris Je T’aime and some of the directors include Fatih Atkin, Natalie Portman and Brett Ratner.

The film’s stars include Bradley Cooper, Shia LaBeouf, Blake Lively, Justin Bartha, Orlando Bloom, Robin Wright Penn, Hayden Christensen, Rachel Bilsen, Ethan Hawke, James Caan, Julie Christie, Natalie Portman, Cloris Leachman and many more.

New York, I Love You is expected to be released in the US on October 16.

If you can’t wait for New York, I Love You, you can watch Paris, Je T’aime until then.  This original film follows 18 stories in the city of love. After falling in love with Paris and New York, you can still look forward new love stories from Shanghai, Jerusalem and Rio in the next few years.

And, if you love the song from New York, I Love You trailer as much as I do, you can check out Phoenix’s performance of “1901″ on David Letterman from August 18.

The September Issue

July 27, 2009

If you loved The Devil Wears Prada, here’s your chance to see the real deal. The September Issue follows Vogue editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, as the magazine prepares for its infamous September issue (According to The September Issue’s official site, the September 2007 issue of Vogue magazine weighed nearly five pounds, and was the single largest issue of a magazine ever published!).

The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January and a limited release in the US is scheduled for August 28. The September Issue won the Grand Jury Prize for Excellence in Cinematography at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.

The Twilight Saga: Nordstrom’s New Moon Collection

July 24, 2009

Jumping on the band-wagon?  Or pure genius?

InStyle provided an exclusive sneak peek of Nordstorm’s new line of Twilight-inspired clothing, ranging from T-shirts and accesories to fall jackets. While Nordstrom released the photos of the new line amidst Comic Con hype surrounding the release of the Twilight sequel, New Moon, the The Twilight Saga: New Moon Collection won’t be available until October, just before the November 20 release of the film.  Good timing.

While Nordstrom may appear to be following the Twilight trend, their timing couldn’t be better and it’s a smart move to increase sales. Other retailers, including Hot Topic, started selling Twilight merchandise last fall during the hype of the film’s release. Twilight was even labeled as the savior of Hot Topic, according to The Cut:

This welcome break from never-ending economic doom and gloom is brought to you by Twilight, the movie responsible for boosting Hot Topic’s sales 11.4 percent in the third quarter. What? Yes. Twilight merchandise has saved Hot Topic from bloody retail death in the economic downturn. Just look at the numbers:

The mall-based retailer’s comparable-store sales were negative from the second quarter of 2005 until October 2008. They have risen each month since then, increasing 6.5 percent in November, 4.3 percent in December, 6 percent in January and 10.8 percent last month.

Will The Twilight Saga: New Moon Collection increase sales rapidly at Nordstrom?  If “Twihards” have anything to do with it, then the money will surely be rolling in.

What do you think?  Is Nordstrom just jumping on the bandwagon or is this new collection a smart move?  Would you buy anything from the The Twilight Saga: New Moon Collection?
