In 100 years, humans will probably have no use for cell phones because they’ve implanted micro-chips in parts of their body. Perhaps Elon Musks’ Mars colonization vision will not only be realized, people will be planning seasonal vacations there and the travel time of 6 months will be cut drastically. Whatever will happen to earth, humans and the next generation is undetermined but what we do know for sure is that in 100 years (99 now), a film directed by Robert Rodriguez, written by John Malkovich and starring John Malkovich, Shuya Chang and Marko Zaror in collaboration with Louis XIII Cognac, will be released and you will never see it.
You’re probably scratching your head going “wait wut?” yep you read right, 100 Years: The Movie You Will Never See has been locked up in a time capsule safe and is due to be released on November 18, 2115. 100 years is aptly titled because, Louis XIII de Remy Martin which is blended using grapes from the Grande Champagne territory of Cognac from 1,200 eaux-de-vie (French for spirits, literally “water of life”) takes 100 years, four generations of cellar masters, to craft each decanter. Louis XIII is one of the most expensive and usually retails starting at over $2,000.
The international tour of the 100 Years film, placed inside a high security Fichet-Bauche safe, kicked off in Los Angeles travelling to cities such as London, Hong Kong, Beijing and Johannesburg then making its way to Celeste Chicago Oct. 5. Invited guests were given a short sneak peek of the film with Yves de Launay, Vice President Louis XIII – Americas, in attendance. Following the peek, guests were treated to a guided tasting of the drink in Louis XIII (Louis Trez) fluer de lis etched crystal glasses, as De Launay talked about the history of LOUIS XIII and the inspiration behind the “100 Years” project.
Rémy Martin’s Louis XIII is a pop culture staple as you’ve probably heard it in different lyrics including Rihanna’s never mess with me anthem “B!tch Better Have My Money” where she sang “Louis 13 and it’s all on me, n___a you just bought a shot.” When the safe is finally unlocked in one hundred years, guests will be welcomed – including the future cellar master, and a descendant of each guest who received a ticket to the film’s preview in 2015 – to an exclusive premiere at the Domaine du Grollet in Cognac, France, on November 18th, 2115.
