The first trailer for the indie Powder Blue has arrived online, and it's one of those montage previews full of quick erotic cuts (did Jessica Biel just pour hot wax down her naked backside?) set to a familiar indie-centric score. Do we have any idea what this film is about after watching the trailer? Not at all, but it sure as heck looks enticing enough to warrant a screening.
Here's what we know of Powder Blue: It follows four Los Angeles residents (a mortician, an ex-con, a suicidal ex-priest and a stripper) who are brought together on Christmas Eve by a mixture of circumstances, and it stars Jessica Biel, Ray Liotta, Forest Whitaker, Patrick Swayze and tons of other people (wiki description after the jump). The trailer itself screams Crash, and if it was up to the editor, we probably would've received two and a half minutes of half-naked stripper Biel ... but who's complaining? No release date yet, and, surprisingly, this isn't playing at Sundance ... so until we find out when and where we can watch this flick in full, enjoy the trailer below ... and then screencaps of Biel and Swayze in a pimped-out blonde wig (doesn't he look like a member of Poison?) in the gallery beneath that.
From Wikipedia: Several Los Angelenos meet on Christmas Eve through chance, tragedy and divine intervention. Swayze will play the sleazy owner of the strip club where Biel's character dances. Redmayne will portray a mortician who falls in love with her. Kristofferson will play the head of a corporate crime organization who tries to convince his former employee (Liotta) not to seek vengeance on his former co-workers. Whitaker, who also serves as a producer on the film, will play a suicidal ex-priest. Newcomer Alejandro Romero will play a transsexual prostitute who shares an unexpected bond with the priest.
