Lucky Star

In a transparent attempt to ape the success of its teutonic competitor and their wildly popular BMW Films, Mercedes-Benz hired Michael Mann (director of Heat) to direct the charismatic Benicio Del Toro as the luckiest man alive in Lucky Star.

Lucky Star is presented as a movie trailer (though there is no actual movie to speak of) and was first shown in theaters in London right next to conventional trailers. While capturing some of stylish cool that made the BMW Films such a success, Lucky Star's musical score (in my opinion) seemed grating and out of place with the mood and flavor of an otherwise well-directed trailer.

He posed the one question they could not ignore: How can one man be absolutely right ... all the time?
