Movie Trailer for Julie and Julia Starring Meryl Streep as Julia Child

Movie Preview: Julie and Julia

Ever since I read Julie and Julia, the story of a New York woman working and blogging her way through Julia Child's Mastering The Art of French Cooking, I've been curious to see how the movie would translate to film. We got a brief glimpse after this year's Oscars, but today the first full trailer is out, and it looks charming.

It appears that writer/director Nora Ephron has beefed up the Julia Child portion of the story, showing her life in France and her own early cooking ventures to go along with Julie's modern kitchen foibles. There's also more physical humor than I was expecting — whacking at things with rolling pins, running from lobsters that escape from pots — and both Streep and Adams seem to pull it off with ease.

Hmm, what would be the appropriate movie theater snack for watching Julie and Julia? The film hits theaters on Aug. 7, and to check out the trailer, just

I'm in the middle of this book and I hate it. Julie just comes off as so whiny and annoying... I'm praying the movie will be better because the premise is so good!

I too was a little skeptical when I first heard about this movie - I love Julia Child and I love this book! but it looks like it will be absolutely marvelous! Meryl Streep can literally master any character, and Amy Adams is just so sweet and effortless. I am very excited about this...

I'm excited for this one. I enjoyed the book, even skipping the weird Julia's life interludes.

Amy Adams and Meryl Streep... sign me up. That said, this looks even better than I expected. Streep is just phenomenal, she has the voice and the mannerisms down pat, and Adams is pretty much the cutest thing in the world. I'll be there.

Amy Adams reminds me of Meg Ryan! (a good thing!) This looks delightful and inspiring. Can't wait. Nora Ephron hasn't had a really good film in a while. This is going to be good.
