Hey hold on.... premiere? Doesn't that mean they're showing the whole movie?
Is it just me or was the filming over really quick and there hasn't been that much hype towards the movie? I was hoping Jim or Ewan would win an oscar for their role in the film, because it has a lot of potential. But if it's already finished filming and editing, and already showing a premiere, then ... what the hell?
Carrey, Poehler to turn exhibitionist at Sundance
Jim Carrey will go after the Oz audience as a Texas prisoner who tries to escape to be with his recently released cellmate (Ewan McGregor) in I Love You Philip Morris. (Hope he knows to steer clear of anyone in a fez.)

I've been saying it for ages now, this just ain't the right movie. There's absolutely no way something like this gets nominated. And I highly doubt any of his announced movies (including 'Ripley') is going to be. His only roles that had a chance for an Academy Awards, were in 'Man on the Moon' and 'The Truman Show'. And yes, 'Eternal Sunshine' was there too, but the role for Kate Winslet was just as big as his role, so there was no chance he would get nominated for 'Best Actor'.
I'm glad it's opening at the Sundance Festival, though. For this movie, it sounds like the right place.
I don't really care if he doesn't win an Oscar. They don't mean much to me. I know a good performance when I see one, I don't need the Oscars telling me what the best performance is.
True. But it will would be nice if the recognize his talent one day.
Interesting news about Jim Carrey's upcoming movie "I Love You Phillip Morris". The calendar for the 10 days of Sundance Film Festival, January 16 - 25, 2009 has been announced. And especially the third day is interesting for us. "I Love You Phillip Morris" premieres January 18, 2009 at the Eccles Theatre. The movie has a total running time of 100 minutes.
Check also this new movie still:
With alacrity and style, Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, the codirectors of I Love You Phillip Morris, have fashioned an improbable, but true, tale of a spectacularly charismatic and resourceful con-man’s journey from small-town cop to flamboyant white-collar criminal. Concocted by the absurdist sensibilities and warped minds that were behind the creation of Bad Santa and centered around an eccentrically wonderful performance by Jim Carrey, the film relates a story that is truly stranger than fiction and showcases a love story that will not be denied. When a local Texas policeman, Steve Russell (Carrey), turns to cons and fraud to allow him to change his lifestyle (in more ways than one), his subsequent stay in the state penitentiary results in his meeting the love of his life, a sensitive fellow inmate named Phillip Morris, perfectly portrayed by Ewan McGregor. What ensues can only be described as a relentless quest as Russell attempts escape after escape and executes con after con, all in the name of love. This is the world of the preposterous: it plays like a farce but is vastly entertaining because it turns all that we take for granted about life on its head. As a primer on the irresistible power of a man who is either insane or in love (is there a difference?), I Love You Phillip Morris surely serves to remind us of the resilience of the human spirit.
