I know I've nearly talked this to death, but it's so cool that the French Eurospy revival OSS 117: Cairo Nest of Spies is getting released theatrically in America that I want to do my best to spread the word. Bond fans, Eurospy fans and comedy fans all should be sure to check this one out. Thanks to Music Box Films, the 1950s set retro spy flick will open in select cities today, with a wider rollout over the next few weeks, finally making its way to DVD in the fall. Michel Hazanavicius' clever, loving parody debuts today, May 9, in New York, Seattle and several California locations (including the Nuart Theatre in LA). Be sure to check out the nifty official website which features the trailer, stills, games and a brief history of Jean Bruce's literary creation, OSS 117.
