12 years in the making/filming! I can't wait to see this film. I'm a huge fan of Richard Linklater's and this looks like it's going to be one of his best. Such a cool idea for a movie. The trailer finally came out today.

Re: Boyhood

I only heard about this yesterday really, but as a fan of the Before trilogy I'll definitely be giving this a look

That's a cool, and quite risky, concept.

Reminds me that they should reshoot all the future scenes for TNG's "All Good Things" for the blu ray version.

Re: Boyhood

While on the subject of Linklater, anyone know why in the UK Before Midnight came out on DVD but not Blu-ray?

Pretty much everything gets released on both, and it's available in the US, but for some reason you can only get the DVD here; it's annoying (as I have my movies in chronological order and everything post-2009 I have on Blu-ray, so it would ruin the aesthetics of my shelf )

Re: Boyhood

That is strange it hasn't been released on Blu-Ray for the UK. I'm not entirely sure, but isn't it true that unlike DVD players, Blu-Ray players will play foreign Blu-Rays? I swear I read that somewhere. Maybe someone with more knowledge of the subject can confirm.

Also surprising is Before Sunrise and Before Sunset aren't available on Blu-Ray, in any country. And then there is Linklater's sUburbia, which isn't even available on DVD, just VHS.

I'm really hoping those all get a proper release some day.

Same here. I've little hope that I will get to see this in theaters since Before Midnight never made it to screens anywhere near me. Oh, well, can't wait to see this on my TV screen at home.

Just heard about this movie yesterday. It's gotten rave reviews and certainly has me interested. I hope it plays in theaters around here.

Re: Boyhood

I love the Before trilogy, and I remember Linklater and Ethan Hawke mention Boyhood in some of their interviews when Before Midnight came out, so my curiosity is definitely piqued.

Re: Boyhood

I've read a couple of brief pieces about it. It seems to me that for this industry, such a project is brooking almost unprecedented logistical hurdles. I guess an unremttingly passionate belief in the story by the filmmaker and actors must have been the core of the determination to see it through.

Admirable ambition this film has, but I'm not looking forward to the prospect of the 2000s and early 2010s not being too kind on Ethan Hawke's looks.

Re: Boyhood

I totally got this same idea a few years ago... but not twelve years ago, so I can't claim that Linklater beat me to it.

I'll definitely be catching this at some point, albeit probably on dvd. The New Yorker did a recent profile on Linklater, with some discussion of the movie, and here's a cool interview with him from The AV Club.

Now, given his history of making time-spanning sequels, who's gonna be the first to ask if he'll start filming Manhood for a few days next year, and the eleven years after that?

Jon Stewart brought it up last night and Linklater mused on the possibilities.

Re: Boyhood

I saw the film this past weekend at the local theater and loved every minute of it. It's one of the most ambitious films I've ever seen and manages to be both simple and complex at the same time: a straightforward storyline that covers philosophical questions similar to those found in Waking Life. I highly recommend everyone to watch this film.
