There's already some conversation attaching itself to this movie about it being two straight actors again taking gay roles away from gay actors, but, I mean... Tucci and Firth are Honorary Homosexuals at this point, aren't they? They've played gay so many times now, even way back in the wayback machine when that wasn't supposed to be good for one's career. Now it is pretty good for one's career though, I'd say. And they look heartbreaking in this so I can't wait. Supernova is about to play some festivals, hence the trailer -- we don't have a release date yet but I hope we will soon. I will obviously keep you informed!

So that's where I am! Basically exactly where I thought I'd be! Here's the trailer:
