Cameron Crowe sure does like to take his time. There was a six year gap between Elizabethtown and We Bought A Zoo, and while it seemed he was going to quickly follow it with a Hawaii set movie, it’s taken a bit longer than originally planned.
The movie shot back in 2013, but it’s only now it’s finally preparing for release.
Aloha is about a defence contractor (Bradley Cooper) who is overseeing the launch of a weapons satellite in Hawaii. He ends up falling for an Air Force pilot (Emma Stone), and together they secretly plan to sabotage the launch. Giving things a slightly sci-fi flavour, the movie also features mysterious island forces and a talking computer. Rachel McAdams, John Krasinski, Danny McBride, Jay Baruchel and Alec Baldwin also star.
The film is due out in the US in May, while it currently looks like the UK will have to wait until September. [Read more…]
