More New Photos from Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones

Earlier this week we featured the very first photo from Peter Jackson's highly anticipated adaptation The Lovely Bones. Stuffed in the latest issue of Empire (that's about the 10th time I've said that this week) are a few new photos from the film, including our first good look at Saoirse Ronan as the lead character Susie Salmon . Additionally seen in the photos are Susan Sarandon (above), who plays Susia's grandma, and Mark Wahlberg (below), who plays Susie's father. I expect this film to gain quite a bit of buzz over the summer, considering it is Peter Jackson who's directing, and it is a very heartfelt and somewhat controversial story.

Thanks to the fan site Access Saoirse (via SlashFilm) for serving up these high res scans. This is a definite indication that you should pick up the latest issue of Empire, because there is so much packed in it that isn't online and it looks like a great read. In an update found in USA Today earlier this week, Peter Jackson spoke about what appealed to him about the book. "As soon as I read the book, I was inspired by how unique this story could be as a film - both in a narrative sense and as well as visually. Perhaps most of all, I responded to the hope and good humor that runs throughout the book." Stay tuned for more big updates as they arrive.

I think this film has potential for greatness. I read what appears to be a finished draft of the script online and found it to be touching. I hope that tranfered over to the finished product.

Cool i love Mark Wahlberg he's a great actor and i've been waiting for something new from him since Max payne, which was not bad. This movie sounds interesting and if it's a bit horror then it will be even more awesome Peter jackson knows how to do it. That hair is nice!

oscar flick?

Lucas Moreira on Apr 25, 2009


Actually, I'm kind of disappointed in these because (book spoiler) the book starts with Susie all ready dead. So right from the beginning we have her talking about what happened and her family from Heaven. From these pictures it looks like that won't be the case unless these are all going to be flashbacks.

Jim C's Avatar will probably take home Oscar Gold away from this flick. This will come a close second if it doesnt win, perhaps? Hmm......

Ken Masters on Apr 25, 2009


I don't know Ken Masters...I think they're going to be two very different films. James Cameron's Avatar may take Oscars for effects, but if this film were to take Oscars it would be for acting--maybe best picture. I'm not sure if Avatar is going to have the story qualities to compete with a film that is heavily laden with storyline and dramatic content. Then again, I have no idea what JC's movie is about, so I'm sure I'm way off base here. 😉

I'm not sure Avatar will take home any awards with the exception of what's probably a strong lock on effects, maybe set design, etc. If the movie is amazing and really great then _maybe_ it has a shot at some big awards, but even then I sort of doubt it. I'd have to be really amazing, with a great story

Timothy on Apr 26, 2009


I agree. I don't really think Avatar will take any Oscars away from this. If anything Avatar might get special effects, set design and MAYBE screenplay.

PJ H on Apr 26, 2009


avatar is going to get best picture, best director, best story, and music. dont know about best fx. whats its about anyway.oh nevermind

Susan Sarandon looks tasty in that photo.

Crapola on Apr 26, 2009


agree wit #2 and also interested in seeing how saoirse ronan performs.

geneguru on Apr 27, 2009


Actually Janet, the book also features the memories of some parts of susie's life, If it wouldn't We'd never haver any kind of sympathy to Susie's character.

David Ari on Jun 12, 2009


I completely agree with #2!
