Worth Watching: Clive Owen in The Boys Are Back Trailer
Miramax has debuted a trailer on Yahoo today for a film I've never heard of called The Boys Are Back starring Clive Owen. This drama is about a father who must learn to become a single parent when his wife suddenly passes away. It's great to see Clive Owen in a non-action movie for once (since I don't really count Duplicity as a complete drama). This looks pretty damn good, but will it be anything memorable? It doesn't look like. Maybe I'm just being too harsh or maybe I'm preparing for the upcoming fall film festivals, since this is premiering up in Toronto. With that said, I still suggest everyone check this out this afternoon.

The Boys Are Back follows a witty, wisecracking, action-oriented sportswriter (Clive Owen) who, in the wake of his wife's tragic death, finds himself in a sudden, stultifying state of single parenthood.
The Boys Are Back is directed by Oscar nominated filmmaker Scott Hicks, of Shine, Snow Falling on Cedars, Hearts in Atlantis, and No Reservations most recently. The screenplay was written by TV writer Allan Cubitt. This is based on Simon Carr's book titled "The Boys Are Back in Town." Miramax is bringing The Boys Are Back to limited theaters on September 25th after its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.
