“COMET” TO HIT PHILIPPINES THIS FEBRUARY
Following the success of the Adam Levine-Kiera
Knightley starrer Begin Again, Solar Pictures brings to local cinemas “COMET”–
a cosmic love story that is sure to leave audiences with that warm February
“Comet,” stars Golden Globe nominee Emmy
Rossum (“The Day After Tomorrow,” “The Phantom of the Opera,” “Mystic River”)
and Justin Long (“Live Free or Die Hard,” “He’s Just Not That Into You”).
"Comet” is an original modern love story
that follows Kimberly (Rossum) and Dell (Long), who first meet at the Hollywood
cemetery where they’ve both come to watch a meteor shower.
Kimberly is brilliant and beautiful;
Dell is nerdy and pessimistic, but with an incredibly sharp mind and direct
manner. While she and he are not a natural pair, they are cosmically drawn to
each other and, under a night sky, luminous with falling stars, they begin
their epic love story.
As the opening title card states the
events “take place over six years (a few parallel universes over).”
But what starts as a typical romance quickly
turns dreamlike as viewers leap back and forth in time, examining their
eventual six-year relationship through the lens of their meeting and four other
pivotal moments: a monumental fight at a friend’s wedding in Paris; a break up
conversation after Dell has moved to New York; a reconnection on a train ride
along the California coast; and finally, when Dell pops in on Kimberly
unexpectedly in her home in the Hollywood Hills.
The leaps between these moments are
seamlessly woven together to create a sense that this love story transcends
time and space and that Kimberly and Dell are destined to be together, if not
in this universe, then maybe the next.
Content Media introduced and screened
the film to international distributors for the first time at the 2014 American
Film Market (AFM) last November and was then picked up by Solar Pictures, among
“The universal theme and inventive
storytelling in ‘Comet’ have us believing that audiences will really connect
with the film,” said Content Media President of Film Jamie Carmichael. “We were
drawn in immediately and are happy to have this film…” COMET opens in cinemas nationwide on
February 25, 2014 and is released by Solar Pictures.
