"I can write a blog. I have thoughts!"
The first trailer for this summer's Julie and Julia has just arrived online (courtesy of our friends at Moviefone), and the thing simply looks sweeter than a piece of pie. With this film, writer-director Nora Ephron brings us two adaptations for the price of one: Julie Powell's Julie & Julia and My Life in France, by Julia Child with Alex Prud'homm. Amy Adams plays Powell, a struggling cubicle worker looking for purpose in life, while Meryl Streep plays legendary chef Julia Child who, though separated from Powell by time and space, is going through a similar crisis in her life. The film, Julie and Julia, then intertwines the lives of these two women as they embark on a journey of self-discovery ... and lots of tasty eats. Remind me not to go into this one on an empty stomach.
I happen to think this looks delightful, funny and more charming than anything arriving in theaters this summer. Could Meryl Streep land another award nod for this role, or is that a stretch? What do you think? Despite the fact that people will constantly fudge the title ("Is it Julia and Julia? Julia and Julie? Julie's Julia?) -- do you think this one has the potential to keep you entertained for a couple of hours? Check out the trailer below; Julie and Julia hits theaters on August 7.
