You know when it comes to movies, I get attracted to action packed, adventurous and also comedies. Throughout all these years of watching them, I have never come across one that I am teased, yet will never get to see.
I’m actually talking about LOUIS XIII’s “100 Years Movie” starring John Malkovich. The teaser was published and the release date of the movie is 18 November 2115. That’s right. 100 years from now. I was like ‘WHAT?!’… well there is a reason why it will only be released then.
So let me tell you what actually happened.
LOUIS XIII Cognac, one of the most luxurious spirits in the world, has announced an original film, starring actor John Malkovich, which envisions our beloved Earth, one century from now.
‘100 Years – The Movie You Will Never See’ was inspired by the century of careful craftsmanship and patience it takes to create each decanter of LOUIS XIII Cognac.
“When I was first approached I really loved the idea… I mean, in a way I wish all the films I made wouldn’t have been seen for a hundred years. I don’t know how much that would change the way they are regarded…” said John Malkovich.
The whole idea around this project is very intriguing as it clearly signifies the incredible legacy of craftsmanship that goes into one decanter of LOUIS XIII, and the fact that its creators will never experience the results of their work, led the creative direction of the film ‘100 Years’, which explores the fascinating concept of what the future may look like in one hundred years.
The final movie has already been kept in a state-of-the-art safe, which is locked with a countdown timer and it will only open when the countdown ends. An exclusive preview of the film’s trailer took place at the Sheats Goldstein Mansion in Los Angeles. During the invitation only event, John Malkovich, with LOUIS XIII, ceremoniously placed the film reel into the custom safe and set the timer for the official premiere in November 18, 2115.
To everyone interested to find out more, this safe will be transported around the world beginning in Hong Kong on December 11, and will finally end up at House of LOUIS XIII in Cognac. Exclusive premiere of the movie will be at the Domaine du Grollet in Cognac, France, on November 18, 2115.
