Immortel -- A live-action Enki Bilal movie!

The 9MB teaser and 35MB trailer are here, and I think this is already my new favorite movie.

    Speaking of enigmatic trailers with almost ridiculously stylish visuals -- see Casshern.

    Nobody I know seems to have much information about it, in English anyway.

    Looks very cool (as almost everything by Bilal does). I saw "Tykho moon", in a theater, a couple of years ago and, at least visually, I liked it enormously. Later I tried to get a copy of it on DVD, but all I could find was a French edition without subtitles (neither French, nor English, nor anything).

    Does anyone know if it has been published with subtitles?

    I'm still downloading the full trailer, but after seeing the Casshern trailer, I think it's gonna be hard to beat.

    When I first watched the teaser-trailer I was overenthusiastic. The comic book trilogy (Immortel, the Female trap and Equador winter) had climped up my top ten of favourite graphic novels ever. I though it was going to turn into a CGI cartoon, especially where Horus falls of the flying pyramid.

    However, the 35MB trailer represents Immortel as a Matrix-like action movie. Then again, it's Bilal adapting his own comic book on screen, therefore I should be less suspicious and more trusting...

    Confused! Confused! I'm anticipating the 24th of March while bitting my nails!

    And it's coming to a festival near me: . Hope I'll find the time to go there and get tickets to that one.

    So cool. So very, very cool. I have a terrible weakness for Enki Bilal and Roger Loisel.

    There's supposed to be a Hellboy movie coming out soon. I've seen preliminary sketches and they look good, but I'm still a little wary.
