Hollywood stars toast Louis XIII film

Celebrities congregate in Beverly Hills to celebrate cognac-maker Louis XIII’s new film, which stars John Malkovich

A star-studded guest list including the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Emma Roberts and Serena Williams gathered in Beverly Hills on November 18 to celebrate the film 100 Years: The Movie You Will Never See.

Commissioned by cognac-maker Louis XIII and directed by Robert Rodriguez (of Sin City fame), the movie is only scheduled for a November 18, 2115 release — which as its title suggests, makes it a film none of us will actually see in our lifetimes. Guests at the Sheats Goldstein Residence, however, were treated to behind-the-scenes footage screened on gold-framed digital screens.

Following the preview, the film’s writer and star, veteran actor John Malkovich, then secured the film in a state-of-the-art safe which will open exactly a century later. A thought-provoking piece that envisions the future of earth in the next century, the film was inspired by the skill that goes into every Louis XIII. The cognac-maker is renowned for ageing some of its prized eaux-de-vie for up to 100 years.
