Movie - Julie & Julia out on Aug 7th

I couldn't find where to post this, so I choose this one. Has anyone seen the trailer for the movie. It looks really good! With Meryl Streep, it probably won't.

Have my calendar marked for this movie.

Anyone else excited about the movie too?

I think this movie looks really good. I grew up watching Julia Child with my Nana and am happy that a movie has been made about her. I hope that it ends up being a tribute and doesn't try to go too much into the side story but maybe it will end up positively surprising me.

"With Meryl Streep, it probably won't." ?????????????????
I've seen the trailers, and I think she does a great job! I have her book, plan to read it this week, then on to the other book, Julie/Julia one, then the movie. I loved watching Julia Child when young, and savor the reruns on PBS. I checked out a few of her videos at the library years ago, how to cook different cuts and types of meat and poultry.

I can't wait for the movie to come out. She is really a part of todays culinary revival, but she started it decades ago. I actually wrote a letter or two to her and she responded with an awesome letter.

I love that she wrote you back! I am looking very forward to the film, and have read some early reviews from foodies that attended prescreenings, they were very favorable!

Sorry, had computer issues that day and it went down while I was typing. Got super busy and forgot ot go back and add what I originally was going to type which was "with Meryl Streep, it probably won't fail because of her amazing acting skills."

Saw her on the tv show "The View" on a day while she was filming Julie & Julia and she said she had gained weight while filming with all of the good rich food she was eating for the movie.

Counting the days til I get to see it.
