Entertainment Tonight, a show known for its butchering of potentially major trailer debuts (thanks for talking over everything, ET hosts), has released a promo for the debut of the trailer for Peter Jackson’s upcoming drama The Lovely Bones. You can view the little bit of footage below, which isn’t enough to really get a feel for the film, if you’re curious. Personally, a trailer for a trailer bothers me — it’s bad enough having to pick apart a trailer and try to make statements about a film, let alone trying to piece together single shots of a film — especially such a complex work as this — an formulate an opinion. So I will wait until we get the full trailer later this week.
In theaters December 11, The Lovely Bones is the story of a young girl (Saoirse Ronan) who is brutally murdered and must observe her family and her killer from heaven. Based on a book by Alice Sebold, it shows how she must balance her need to see her family let her go and for her killer to be brought to justice. It is a really great book, one which I would suggest you read before the film hits. The film stars Mark Wahlberg, Rachel Weisz, Susan Sarandon and Stanley Tucci.
