New Promo Is Extremely Loud

...And Incredibly Close

Most of the movies that are likely to be Oscar contenders have now either come through our cinemas or are approaching rapidly. But we’re going to have to wait a little while for Stephen Daldry’s latest, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, as it doesn’t hit UK screens until February. Still, the new trailer has arrived over at Apple.

Extremely Loud, adapted from Jonathan Safran Foer’s novel by Eric Roth, follows the journey of young Oskar Schell (Thomas Horn). A gifted, sensitive lad, he enjoys nothing more than scouring New York City on informative quests both for and with his father Thomas (Tom Hanks).

But then Oskar and his mother's (Sandra Bullock) lives are shattered when Thomas is killed in the September 11 attacks. Deep in mourning, Oskar finds a key in his father’s closet and sets out to discover what it unlocks, thereby putting himself on a road to recovery.

Featuring a cast stocked full of award winners and solid talent, Extremely Loud boasts the services of John Goodman, Max von Sydow, Jeffrey Wright and Viola Davis.

We’ll finally get to see it on February 3.
