First Trailer For The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby

Once upon a time there were two versions of The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: one from a “His” point of view, focusing on Conor (James McAvoy) and “Hers”, following Eleanor (Jessica Chastain). For this year’s Cannes film festival and now the drama’s release, the films have been combined into one, “Them” version, and the first trailer is online via Yahoo.

Eleanor Rigby traces the early courtship of Chastain’s title character and McAvoy’s charmer, their bright and consuming love and the tragedy that drives a wedge between them, resulting in Eleanor attempting suicide early in the film. They then have to pick up the pieces of their lives and their relationship.

We saw the combined film at Cannes and liked it, with some reservations, but it would still be interesting to have all three cuts for comparison. Perhaps the home entertainment release will provide that satisfaction.

With Viola Davis, Bill Hader, William Hurt, Ciaran Hinds, Ryan Eggold, Archie Panjabi and Isabelle Huppert also in the film, The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby hits US cinemas on September 26, but has yet to lock in a UK date.
