The film that you'll likely never see
Albert Einstein's theory of relativity explains that if two people are waiting for same thing, one it can feel like it is taking a lifetime, while the other feels like it's over in a flash. Regardless of this, we're pretty sure that even the most patient of men would likely give up waiting on the release of John Malkovich's new film 100 Years, a movie with the release date of 2115.
In a case of taking a name very literally, 100 Years is a film that was created in 2015 by director Robert Rodriguez, staring Malkovich in association with the cognac brand Louis XIII, that will be locked in a time-locked safe for the next hundred years.
Granted, due to its level of secrecy, there isn’t much known about the film, although three trailers have been released to help generate hype (see below), although almost everyone watching the trailer now will most likily not live to see the actual film.
“Why have they done it? Well, the short version is that it is an artistic performance for Louis XIII Cognac, an ultra-luxury liquor that takes four generations of cellar master over 100 years to craft. It is a blend of 1,200 eaux de vie, the youngest of which is at least 40 years old, which means today's cellar master is making a selection of eaux-de-vie destined to be part of the Louis XIII final blend in the year 2116. So they decided a piece of art that speaks to their commitment to quality was something worth doing."
What makes this even more exciting is Louis XII, in true Willy Wonka fashion, will be giving out 1,000 “Golden Tickets” to the film's eventual premiere. The tickets will be made of metal, but it’s highly unlikely they will be made of Gold. These tickets will allow the lucky receiver’s descendants to see the screening of 100 Years in 100 years time.
