Restless Trailer

Columbia Pictures has debuted the first official trailer on Moviefone for Gus Van Sant's new teenage drama Restless starring young actors Mia Wasikowska and Henry Hopper. The film has somewhat of an odd premise, almost a bit like Clint Eastwood's Hereafter, that dabbles a bit in the supernatural, with ghosts and things of that sort. It definitely still has the very teenage, indie Gus Van Sant feel to it (that some of you may love), but they're obviously trying to play this as a more mainstream flick. I guess I will say that looks like a wonderfully charming and emotionally riveting romantic drama, I'm curious to check it out. Watch it below!

Tells the story of a 16-year-old terminally ill girl (Mia Wasikowska) who falls for a boy (Henry Hopper) who likes to attend funerals and their encounters with the ghost of a Japanese kamikaze pilot from WWII.

Restless is directed by Oscar nominated American filmmaker Gus Van Sant, of Drugstore Cowboy, My Own Private Idaho, Good Will Hunting, Finding Forrester, Elephant, Paranoid Park, Milk and many other films and music videos previously. The screenplay was written by first-time writer Jason Lew. Columbia Pictures and Imagine Entertainment are bringing Restless to theaters starting January 28th, 2011 early next year.

    looks good but they show too much in the trailer

    I'd like to see the trailer but for some reason this one is not showing up for me.
  • You don't see the photo? Click the little "play" icon in the lower left corner. I'll replace it with a YouTube version a bit later if that still doesn't work for you.
  • Kevin
    Charming.
  • Andy
    Gus Van Sant is a fantastic director with a good track record and only a few mishaps.
  • D.
    Yeap... i'm getting soft... I liked it. It's charming and ,somehow, pretty sad. I'll check this.
  • beavis
    i thought it was looking ok until the kamikaze pilot - i didn't think that was a good fit at all. i may rent it.
  • Kevin
    A quirky hipster romance... haven't seen that before.
  • Mike
    Perhaps its just the trailer and i'll probably end up giving Van Sant the benefit of the doubt ....but that looks bad. Such a lifetime channel feel to it.
  • c
    Yay for FISK!!!!
  • wes
    so...harold and maude...with a ghost?
  • crumb
    @ #5 no,no,no,no,no. Gus Van Sant is a shit director that has occasionally stumbled into good film making. GERRY and PARANOID PARK are some of the worst films ever made. ...though, i liked this trailer. heh. Maybe there will be one more good GVS movie i like afer all... even though i did say to myself that i'll never watch another GVS movie after i watched PARANOID PARK. (and yeah, i already broke that rule by watching the very good MILK.)

    Gus van Sant is an odd character. While I liked Finding Forrester and loved Good Will Hunting, I hated Elephant with a passion. I still think I might check this out though.
  • Alice, that's where I know her from... looks sad.
  • LINKFX
    Aw that looks sweet, definitely a date movie.
  • arjones
    Thanks Alex I'd appreciate that. No I don't have the photo to click on. It's just white for some reason. I've had it once before on another trailer awhile ago but have been able to see others since then.
  • People can say whatever about Gus but he knows how to tell intimate stories.
  • The pilot looked cool, I wish he hung out with me.
  • Jezza
    Looks like a spin off of Extrodinary Measures in which the girl is a lot older and she no longer has Harrison Ford checking up on her. Didn't we see this supernatral idea done in Hereafter?
  • I will definitely be seeing this. Besides, right now Mia W. can do no wrong.
