You Had Me at Aloha: Rachel McAdams and Bradley Cooper Shine in Cameron Crowe Film, Plus Wisdom from Bill Murray

screen-shot-2015-02-11-at-9-02-20-pm-png-1Sony has just released a new clip from the upcoming Cameron Crowe film ALOHA. Could this be a return to form for the director of JERRY MAGUIRE, ALMOST FAMOUS, and SAY ANYTHING ? This scene suggests the answer is yes.

In ALOHA, a celebrated military contractor (Bradley Cooper) returns to the site of his greatest career triumphs – the US Space program in Honolulu, Hawaii – and reconnects with a long-ago love (Rachel McAdams) while unexpectedly falling for the hard-charging Air Force watchdog (Emma Stone) assigned to him. Written and directed by Cameron Crowe, and produced by Scott Rudin, ALOHA also stars Bill Murray, John Krasinski, Danny McBride, and Alec Baldwin.

The song in the trailer is an instrumental version of ROCKS by Imagine Dragons. This song is not on the soundtrack, but there are a number of familiar names on the album, including  indie and classic acts such as Beck, David Crosby, Fleetwood Mac, Kurt Vile, The Blue Nile, Radical Face, The Tallest Man On Earth. and Jónsi & Alex.

The marketing tagline for the picture is “Sometimes you have to say goodbye before you can say hello.” Here’s the poster:
