Universal Pictures has released a boatload of movie clips in anticipation of the release for their upcoming film Idlewild. The clips look pretty solid in a Chicago kind of way. Well, in a Chicago meets Outkast, meets André 3000 kind of way.
Idlewild Movie Clips
The story of the loves and ambitions of two struggling performers is told through intricate musical numbers and vibrantly choreographed dance sequences in Idlewild, an original musical starring multi-platinum and multi-Grammy winning OutKast members André Benjamin (André 3000) and Antwan Andre Patton (Big Boi).
Set against the backdrop of a 1930s southern speakeasy, Idlewild explores the lives of Percival (Benjamin), the club's shy piano player, and Rooster (Patton), the club's showy lead performer and manager. Idlewild synthesizes drama, music, cinema and style to bring the tale of struggling singers to life. It is the feature film- directing debut for Bryan Barber, the award-winning director and longtime OutKast music video collaborator, and includes dance sequences choreographed by legendary performer and three-time Tony winner Hinton Battle.
Some of the clips are hard to get a feeling on. One such clip features a shoot out to upbeat music. Are the characters really in danger or is this film having fun with guns?
