Remember My Blueberry Nights? Oh yeah! Here it is...

From John Beifuss in the CA:

Did you participate as an extra or crew member during the shooting of "My Blueberry Nights" in August of 2006 in downtown Memphis ?

If so, you’ll at last have a chance to see your work or yourself (if you made the cut) on the big screen on May 30, when the latest film from acclaimed Hong Kong auteur Wong Kar-wai opens in Memphis for a run of at least a week, exclusively at Malco’s Studio on the Square.

Wong’s first English-language film and his first to be shot in America, “My Blueberry Nights” is a romantic road movie set in Memphis, Las Vegas and New York that stars Norah Jones, Rachel Weisz, Jude Law, David Strathairn, Natalie Portman and Tony Award-winning Memphian Adriane Lenox. The movie debuted in May of 2007 at the Cannes Film Festival, to mixed reviews; with distribution in the U.S. by The Weinstein Company, it opened April 4 in New York and Los Angeles, and has been slowly expanding into other cities since. (As of this weekend, it has played in a total of only 69 U.S. theaters.)
