There’s been a number of films that have spawned from literary works. Twilight and Harry Potter film franchises brought an unprecedented amount of attention to their respective novels and The Hunger Games shortly followed as the next novel to get audiences excited. While these were some very popular films, there were many others based on novels that didn’t get their moment in the sun yet audiences retrospectively regret not seeing the films after they had the enjoyment of finally getting the chance to watch them. Drive (Ryan Gosling) for instance was a critically acclaimed film that was noticed only after it gained that acclaim. Syrup may be a film that falls into that same list of quiet successes. When I watch this trailer for the upcoming film Syrup, I have a feeling of intrigue and curiosity as to what this film could be. Based on the critically acclaimed, cult classic by Max Barry (read more here), Syrup seems to wrap the elements of sex, lies, and mystery into this trailer below.
Watching this trailer gives you that feeling of a deviant type of cool with an array of scenes that say this film is going to have a consistent pace and a score that sets the mood. Keep an eye on this film as it may be one of those you’ll regret you missed. If you’re interested now or want to know a little more, keep an eye out for a follow up post on Friday, February 22 where you can read about my interview with Director Aram Rappaport. He gives some detailed information about what you can expect from the film, as well as some intriguing details about the film’s cast members, Shiloh Fernandez, Amber Heard, Kellan Lutz, and Brittany Snow.
