Seeing as Elektra Luxx just premiered at SXSW, and seeing as this most likely means that (like its predecessor, Women in Trouble) Elektra Luxx won’t be released into theaters ’til late fall, I know I shouldn’t be getting worked up about seeing this movie quite so soon, PARTICULARLY when I still haven’t seen Women in Trouble to confirm if it is in fact the candy-colored campstravaganza I so hope it to be. Seriously, this could be a recipe for most disappointing thing since that one time when the nerds saw Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace or that other time when I saw the trailer for Marc Vorlander’s Showgirls: The Return, but something tells me that’s doubtful, and that something is poster:
Ermm, I’m sorry, but in such instances of hot pink, European-movie-poster chic fabulousness, I’ve every reason to freak my freak out. This poster has already won the Silver in the 2010 HomOlympics (Gold and Lifetime Achievements went to Johnny Weir because le duh), so let’s not even talk about the plot summary. Wait, scratch that and channel some Jessica-Alba-in-Fantastic-Four annunciation: LET’S:
Pregnant porn star Elektra Luxx (Carla Gugino) is trying to make a living teaching sex classes to housewives. But her life is thrown into disarray when a flight attendant (Marley Shelton) with ties to Electra’s past approaches her for a favor. Chaos ensues as fiancees, private investigators, a twin sister and even the Virgin Mary force her to face up to an unexpected series of decisions and revelations.
Pregnant porn stars, sex classes with housewives, twin sisters AND the Virgin Mary? I’m not saying every movie should sound like an early Almodovar film that’s been put on crazy pills so it won’t reject the kidney transplant it got from an episode of El Generalissimo, I’m just saying they should. And since I’m already making outlandish demands, I want more cowbell musical burlesque numbers:
PERFECTO, Sebastian Gutierrez. I’ve just been whipped up into a frothing campticipation in less than a minute, which means I can only imagine how I’ll react when a full trailer drops (probably this). All I ask is that you please keep doing the delicious work you’re doing, and PLEASE get this movie into theaters ASAP (immediately).
