Bottle Shock - Hollywood's next wine movie.

I can't help but post this trailer to the much anticipated (by some in the wine industry, anyway) Bottle Shock, which is loosely based on the 1976 Paris tasting. I still have Alan Rickman's performance with Johnny Dep in Sweeney Todd fresh in my mind. He's a good actor, and along with Bill Pullman might be the only quality performance of this movie. Bottle Shock, in theaters March 2008.

eeek, that looks just TERRIBLE. like something for pre-teens off the WB network. never would have been made if not for the success of sideways, and tht movie was successful because of the depth of the characters. this looks so bad, it's annoying. thanks for the clip though.

Yeah, it looks pretty bad.

"She likes my wine...A LOT!": straight up WB style.

Apparently another film about the 1976 tasting is still in development.
