Trailer Park: “The Way Back”

October 8, 2010 § Leave a comment

Just a few days after we received confirmation that Peter Weir‘s The Way Back would receive a one-week Oscar-qualifying run at the end of December, this epic trailer hits the web.  And I do mean epic.  Studios and directors aren’t really making films like this anymore, these cross-continental historical dramas/tales of survival, which is a shame.  When done right they can be thrilling, breathtaking cinema.

The cast looks stellar (I can easily see awards traction for Ed Harris, Colin Farrell, and maybe Saoirse Ronan), and it’s obviously gonna show up in at least a few tech categories.  I’m worried that it’s already shaping up to be such a crowded race that it’s late entrance will handicap it severely…
