Before Midnight: What Are The Odds?

, by Zoë Gulliksen

Today new pictures were released for "Before Midnight", the third movie after "Before Sunrise" and "Before Sunset". You can check them all out at The Daily BLAM!, and I could not help but suppress a squeal at work today when I saw these images. I have been a long time of the previous films, and I am very excited yet very scared for this third film.

I won't give you a synopsis of the movies, you can read the Wikipedia page for that. However I would like to take a moment to talk about the odds of this film being good

The ending for "Before Sunset" is so perfect in it's pacing, tension, and meaning that when the screen goes dark you cannot help but feel longing, excitement and stil satisfaction. If you are familiar with the ending or don't mind being spoiled, check out this image

Is there a chance that this film could be just as good, if not better as it's precursors? Ethan Hawke and Julie Deply are back, and have co written the screenplay with the trilogy's director Richard Linklater. These are small, simple films that each take place over a course of only so many hours. These movies are personal projects that mean something to the creators. Will they take the characters and give them the happy ending they deserve, or will our heart strings be ripped apart at the seams and leave us with another tearful parting?

I'm rambling, but I would like to know what fellow fans think. Will Celine and Jesse finally get to be together, once and for all?
