I'm so psyched for this movie!! The trailer just made me that much more excited!
I'm curious as to how this film will be received. Regardless, it seems that Morrissey will get exposure. I hope it's successful.
I wonder if it will be shown in IMAX or 3D, I believe that was only reported my M's nephew on FB and not official. I'm not really sure if an IMAX Moz film is a good idea or not...but I sure couldn't resist a huge Morrissey reaching out to me
I, too, hope it does well there.
My realistic side, however, feels it will come and go with a whisper.
My general view of things like this has become more cynical with time.
I first noticed the decline in interest of Moz stuff in the UK when all the 'recent' singles were easy to buy in record shops.
That includes semi-naked ltd 7"s!
I asked the manager of HMV (in England's second biggest city) how many units they bought in of Moz singles and was amazed to hear between 5 and 10 - which 'catered for demand'!
I fear that besides die hards and group efforts to fill a cinema, there won't be too much fuss made over this release.
It does feel a bit like an apology for skipped gigs.
The dvd will sell a few thousand, but do little for the greater good.
The leaked Hollywood Bowl seemed a better gig to put out too. At least the QID was an interesting way to open the gig.
Perhaps its a bigger thing going on here? With the negativity that creeps in here at times, anon 'bitching' et al - if the fan base can't get on it's not surprising interest has waned (coupled with the lack of new music helping to catalyse it).
Given I've chased the Smiths about since 14yrs old, hung outside recording studios, chased Moz etc in the way you do when you are captivated by your musical heroes, I can honestly say things just don't feel the same any more.
Is this my age or perhaps just a fair observation of someone no longer at their zenith?
Time will tell. I will go see the film if it gets a UK release and certainly own it, but I just can't find that excitement at the thought of a new release right now (an album? Well now you're talking!).
Would be nice to have a CD/DVD Set.....
I could have knocked that trailer together in movie maker in 20 minutes and done a better job.
