Video: Seven (500) Days Of Summer Clips
It was six months ago that I first started raving about (500) Days of Summer, and with the year half over it’s still my favorite film of the year. Soon you’ll be able to tell me to shut up and form your own opinions, since it finally slips into theaters in limited release on July 17th.
(500 Days of Summer) is the story of boy meets girl. Tom, the boy, still believes, even in this cynical modern world, in the notion of a transforming, cosmically destined, lightning-strikes-once kind of love. Summer, the girl, doesn’t. Not at all. But that doesn’t stop Tom from going after her, again and again, like a modern Don Quixote, with all his might and courage. Suddenly, Tom is in love not just with a lovely, witty, intelligent woman – not that he minds any of that -- but with the very idea of Summer, the very idea of a love that still has the power to shock the heart and stop the world.
Below we have seven clips from the film and Fox Searchlight has actually done something worthwhile here. The clips contain moments from some of the best scenes in the movie, but to avoid spoiling them they’ve removed certain key moments or omitted the movie’s gorgeous, mood setting soundtrack. The net effect here is that even if you watch the clips to get a feel for the film, once you see them in context they’ll still feel brand new.
Watch all seven clips below and walk away spoiler free.
