Louder Than Bombs

"I wanted to know…" The first powerful teaser trailer for Joachim Trier's new film Louder Than Bombs has debuted online, and it's a must see. Trier is the Danish filmmaker behind Reprise and Oslo, August 31st, and this new drama just premiered at Cannes and will likely hit a few other festivals coming up. Louder Than Bombs is mostly in English and stars Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Ryan, Gabriel Byrne, David Strathairn, Isabelle Huppert and Devin Druid. The story concerns two brothers, played by Eisenberg and Druid, and their feelings and memories of their mother, a famed war photographed who was killed in a horrific car accident that is teased at the end of this. I'm looking forward to seeing the film, something very mesmerizing about this teaser. I'm not the biggest Joachim Trier fan but I'm curious about this. Take a look.

Here's the first teaser trailer for Joachim Trier's Louder Than Bombs, on YouTube (via The Film Stage):

Louder Than Bombs - Cannes Poster

An upcoming exhibition celebrating photographer Isabelle Reed three years after her untimely death, brings her eldest son Jonah back to the family house – forcing him to spend more time with his father Gene and withdrawn younger brother Conrad than he has in years. With the three of them under the same roof, Gene tries desperately to connect with his two sons, but they struggle to reconcile their feelings about the woman they remember so differently. Louder Than Bombs is directed by Danish filmmaker Joachim Trier, of the films Reprise and Oslo, August 31st previously. The script is by Joachim Trier and fellow filmmaker Eskil Vogt. This premiered at the Cannes Film Festival back in May playing In Competition, and will be released next spring in the US by The Orchard. Stay tuned for updates on the release. Your thoughts?

Thanks for the heads up on this one, Alex. Again, I haven't seen a thing about this film except from you today. This certainly has an excellent cast with Eisenberg, and the wonderful Amy Ryan and also Byrne, who I don't see much of anymore. Also the terrific Isabelle Huppert who I've loved for a long, long time. Also David Strathairn who always turns in good work. I'm looking forward to this for just the great cast the director has assembled. Let's hope it's a tale well told with good performances from this terrific cast. Thanks again, Alex.

This short teaser was more intriguing than most full trailers for big films these days, I love it when they are able to draw you in without showing too much.

Joachim Trier is Norwegian, not Danish.

Looks like a super heavy one here. I will probably see this once, cry, and never want to watch it again.
