Since it’s premiere earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, Richard Linklater’s Before Midnight has been receiving an astounding amount of praise from critics and audiences alike. It has since then made its way to other film festivals where it received even more praise. The anticipation is absolutely killing me because I am one of those who, unfortunately, haven’t seen the film yet. The first theatrical poster for the film has made its way online. Check out the poster below.
Before Midnight is the third installment of Linklater’s unexpected indie franchise that all started in 1995 with Before Sunrise and then continued with Before Sunset in 2004. Before Midnight picks up nine years after we were left wondering if Jesse (Ethan Hawke) missed his flight or not. As the trailer reveals, he indeed missed his flight. Jesse and Celine (Julie Delpy) are now a middle-aged couple and parents of twin girls who go on a trip in Greece.
Sony Pictures Classics picked up the rights shortly after the Sundance Film Festival and will release the film on May 24th. I made sure to post the official trailer for the film just in case you haven’t seen it yet.
