Do You Believe You Can Do This? First 'Little Boy' Trailer Has Faith
If films blatantly aimed at a Christian audience are your thing, then you're absolutely going to love this cheesy, melodramatic trailer for Little Boy. The film takes the phrase that "faith can move mountains" literally as a young boy believes he has some kind of mind powers to make things happen, like moving a mountain. What's interesting is that this film actually has a decent cast with Emily Watson, Tom Wilkinson, Michael Rapaport and Kevin James for some reason. They all surround Jakob Salvati as the title boy who just wants to bring his father home from World War II. This movie looks tailor made for people who see only the most tame family films in theaters, and that's just not my cup of tea at all. Watch?
Here's the first trailer for Alejandro Monteverde's Little Boy from Open Road Films:
Little Boy is directed by Alejandro Monteverde (Bella), who co-wrote the script with first-time feature writer Pepe Portillo. Set in the 40s, the film follows a 7-year old boy (Jakob Salvati) who is willing to do whatever it takes to end World War II so he can bring his father (Michael Rapaport of The Heat) back home, showing the incredible love a father has for his little boy and the love a son has for his father. Emily Watson, Tom Wilkinson and Kevin James also star in the film which Open Road Films releases on February 27th, 2015.
