Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close Trailer

It’s been a few years since I read Jonathan Safran Foer’s Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.  It’s a book that I enjoyed while reading, but it hasn’t particularly stayed with me.  I read it, liked it, moved on.  It had totally left my radar until I saw the trailer for the film adaptation earlier today.  Stephen Daldry’s latest directorial feature looks like it could be a fantastically moving film – felt myself well up just watching it.  The appeal partly lies in the cast – Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock are two of the most likeable actors about at the moment and I reckon both are hoping for another trip to the Oscars with this one.  I’ll keep an eye out for more news but would be interested to know what you think about this trailer.

  1. They kill Tom Hanks – I can’t believe it. I thought there was an unwritten rule against such practices unless your name was Spielberg. This looks like a weepy to me. It might work but the trailer doesn’t really do it justice. However, a great choice of music – love that U2 track.

  2. Hmm… I’m not sure what my thoughts are about this. Hanks and Bullock are very likeable and I think, at least in parts, it will be a weepy. I’ll see what the vibe is nearer the time but for now I think it’s probably a rental for me.

  3. I can’t wait to see this! I’m hoping to read the book first.
