"Memoirs Of A Geisha" Trailer Up.

Stop what you're doing right now, boy. I got you under my spellWow! I just got hold of the first run of the Memoirs of a Geisha Trailer. And all I can say is. I am so ready for this.

I have to admit. It is a little unusual to see all these fine Asian actors (Ken Watanabe, Michelle Yeoh, Gong Li) speak English in a pretty much Asian setting (parts were actually shot in sound studios in LA). Although it does seem like a winner so I'm putting may trust (and my P120) on Frank Marshall on this one.

"A geisha must be able to stop a man in his tracks with a single look". And, oh yes, she did make me stop doing what I was doing.

Click here for the trailer.

If you can't view it, go to Twitch

Props to Arsonist in the Twitch Forums for the links, I don't know you, man, but I love you...

Thanks, all....

I'm learning Photoshop, and its paying off.. next stop CSS.

The motif is Da Vinci Code, obvious ba?

I didn't have any idea that my changes would make it work for Safari and Mozilla. Twice the cool.

I love your new layout. Haaay... I wish...

BTW, it's been 8 years since I first read the book (tama kaya bilang ko?). I can't believe it's actually here!

Adobo: I haven't read the book. The railer looks really good. Do you think it is loyal (to the book)?

Are you kidding me, Rocketboy? How many films have been loyal to the books they were based on? ;-)

ann: Loyalty to the book is a minor issue I guess, For as long as they make a good movie out of it.
