Well, here's a little bit of a surprise to cap off your week. Just like that, a teaser has dropped online for a commercial helmed by director James Gray and starring Ewan McGregor and Vinessa Shaw.

The brief one minute teaser finds McGregor playing a character named Mats Anderson, while Shaw takes the role of Special Agent Carter. It's all being done for Citron, the French auto company. Earlier this year, Gray dropped a commercial for Martell, and these are just little exercises between his feature gigs.

For now, we're patiently awaiting the filmmaker's next effort, "Lowlife," starring Marion Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner and all eyes on are on the Cannes Film Festival where we think/hope it will make its premiere. Watch below, and after you can catch up on our interviews with the director from last year right here and here.
