Must Watch: First Incredible Trailer for Sci-Fi Mr. Nobody
Nothing is real, everything is possible. The first trailer for Belgian filmmaker Jaco van Dormael's Mr. Nobody, a sci-fi drama starring Jared Leto, has debuted via Quiet Earth. We featured the film in our look at the 2009's sci-fi movies, but this looks much more incredible than I thought it would. It looks a bit like if The Curious Case of Benjamin Button were a sci-fi flick, and the "old age" make-up looks as good as anything Fincher could pull off (although that's hard to tell right now). But we'll certainly be keeping a very close eye on this, as it looks like it has the potential to be one of the best films of the year, sci-fi or otherwise.

Watch the first trailer for Jaco van Dormael's Mr. Nobody:
Nemo Nobody (Jared Leto) leads an ordinary existence at his wife's side, Elise, and their three children until the day when reality skids and he wakes up as an old man in the year 2092. At 120, Mr. Nobody is both the oldest man in the world and the last mortal of a new mankind where nobody dies anymore.
Mr. Nobody is both written and directed by Belgian filmmaker Jaco van Dormael, of Totò the Hero, Lumière and Company, and The Eighth Day previously. The film was shot in both Germany and Canada throughout 2007, but is only now just being unveiled. Mr. Nobody does not have a US distributor yet, but we'll let you know when we hear more about it and if it shows up at any film festivals later in the year.
