Second Official Trailer for Peter Weir's New Film 'The Way Back'
More indie trailers today! Newmarket Films has unveiled another official trailer via Yahoo for the domestic release of Peter Weir's The Way Back, his new survival film based on a true story about a group of soldiers who escaped from a Siberian gulag in 1940 and traveled over 4000 miles across some of the most dangerous terrain in the world. The film stars Colin Farrell, Jim Sturgess, Ed Harris, Mark Strong and Saoirse Ronan. We featured an international trailer last month that looked great. This new trailer is a bit different, but still has an epic feel to it. Weir's visuals look amazing and it seems like an incredible story as well. Check it out!
