But our exclusive trailer for I'm So Excited! looks like he's set to raise the camp, crazy and colourful bar yet again.
Set almost entirely on an aeroplane flying its way to Mexico City, the pilots, flight crew, and passengers are forced to 'face the greatest danger, which we carry within ourselves', when it appears the end could be in sight.

Watch the trailer below and spot the cameos from long-time Almodovar collaborators Penelope Cruz and Antonio Banderas)...
