Um … major/genius collaboration announcement! Warner Bros. and the Ace Hotel are teaming up to bring us early screenings of “Inherent Vice” in LA, NY and London! The Ace Hotel DTLA is having a special preview of “Inherent Vice” on Monday, December 1st with director Paul Thomas Anderson, and actors Jena Malone and Joanna Newsom who are in the film. The screening is open to guests at Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles, who will get a gratis ticket to see the invite-only screening before it premieres nationwide. The event will also be open to fans that will have a chance to RSVP through the Inherent Vice official site and social media channels. The LA screening is the first initiative in this creative partnership between the Ace Hotels and Warner Bros., which includes screenings of the film at Ace Hotel in London, New York and Downtown Los Angeles and gallery exhibitions in each hotel in January. For hotel guests, there will also be custom vinyls of the film score by Jonny Greenwood.
“Inherent Vice,” is the seventh feature from Paul Thomas Anderson and the first ever film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel.
When private eye Doc Sportello’s ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a loony bin…well, easy for her to say.
It’s the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that “love” is another of those words going around at the moment, like “trip” or “groovy,” that’s being way too overused—except this one usually leads to trouble.
With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, LAPD Detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover, and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists… Part surf noir, part psychedelic romp—all Thomas Pynchon.
The film stars Oscar nominees Joaquin Phoenix (“The Master,” “Walk the Line”), Josh Brolin (“True Grit,” “No Country For Old Men”) and Owen Wilson (“The Royal Tennenbaums,” “Midnight in Paris”); Katherine Waterston (“Michael Clayton,” “Boardwalk Empire”); Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon (“Walk the Line”) and Benicio Del Toro (“Traffic”); Martin Short (“Frankenweenie”); Jena Malone (“The Hunger Games” series); and musician Joanna Newsom.
Oscar nominee Paul Thomas Anderson (“There Will Be Blood,” “The Master”) directed “Inherent Vice” from a screenplay he wrote based on the novel by Thomas Pynchon. Anderson also produced the film, together with Oscar-nominated producers JoAnne Sellar and Daniel Lupi (“There Will Be Blood”). Scott Rudin and Adam Somner served as executive producers.
