New Trailer For A Long Way Down Arrives
Aaron Paul tackles Nick Hornby

We haven't heard much about A Long Way Down since its shoot in the autumn of 2012. But as it heads to the Berlin International Film Festival next month, a trailer has finally surfaced, showcasing the not inconsiderable charms of Aaron Paul, Pierce Brosnan, Imogen Poots and Toni Collette. Rosamund Pike and Sam Neill provide the support, in Pascal Chaumeil's darkly comic adapation of the Nick Hornby bestseller.

It's no easy thing to craft a feelgood movie premised on multiple attempted suicides, but it looks as though all involved have found a way to do it. If you don't know the novel and didn't glean it from this trailer, the story involves four strangers - Brosnan's disgraced TV presenter, Collette's put-upon single mum, and troubled yoots Poots and Paul - meeting as they find themselves in an unexpected queue to jump from a building on New Year's Eve.

Agreeing to postpone until Valentine's Day, they form an unlikely support group, and endure some equally unlikely escapades on the road to spiritual and psychological recovery.

The trailer sets up Brosnan as the dominant personality, but post-Breaking Bad all eyes are now on Paul's future away from the small screen. March is certainly a good month for him. Need For Speed, which he shot after this, screeches into the UK on March 12. A Long Way Down follows hard on its heels on March 21.
