New Extended TV Spot for Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones
Paramount has debuted a new TV spot for Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones. It runs a minute long and is a good compliment to the original trailer, especially because I think it's good that they don't give away too much of the story. We get to see a few more scenes of heaven with finished CGI and a bit more of the story. I'm actually really excited for this, I've got high hopes (despite the mixed early buzz). The one part of this I am still a bit hesitant about is heaven, just because it looks so wildly imaginative that I'm not sure if I'll be able to get into it. I sort of had the same problem with What Dreams May Come. Anyway, give this a shot.
Watch the new TV spot for Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones:
The Lovely Bones is directed by Academy Award winning filmmaker Peter Jackson, of Heavenly Creatures, The Frighteners, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and King Kong previously. The screenplay was co-written by Peter Jackson and his writing partners Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, who also wrote Lord of the Rings and King Kong with Jackson. This is based on Alice Sebold's bestselling novel of the same name first published in 2002. Paramount is bringing The Lovely Bones to theaters everywhere on December 11th.

I felt the same about What Dreams May Come as well. But it's gotta be tough to illustrate what "heaven" will be like. I read this book about 5 years ago and really liked it, except for one part that was kind of dumb and predictable. I'm VERY anxious for the screen version due to the fact that Jackson and his previous partners made other things I totally dug. New trailer is better than the last one...showing more visual and less plot busting.

Great one .... The story is interesting .. great crew... and as always I like the CGI ... so colorful and magical ... ! There is no doubt about Peter Jackson's work !! 😉

I think the bad reviews will be overshadowed by the good reviews yet to come. This is my most anticipated movie. Not Avatar, not nine.

I agree 100% with #3. I've been waiting for this film for a while.

I fail to see any valid point here on what heaven may look like as there is no such place anyway. It can look like whatever the director's imagination wants it to. It is only make believe.

If I dont see any unicorns in this movie there is definitely something wrong with Peter Jackson's vision of heaven god dammit!

#6- I took it to be Jackson/Walsh's interpretation of what this young girl should view as heaven and in that case I really don't see much wrong with it. I look at this as more in tune with Ronan's character and not so much as an over-stylized visual effect (which is technically what it is but at least it is serving its purpose in the story).

I agree, even with the mixed reviews, I am still anxious to see the movie. I don't let the critics influence me.

looks awesome yeah, I agree with #3, oddly this and Heath Ledger's final film (sorry I don't want to type the whole thing out. You know what I'm talking about.) are my top picks for January. Can't wait! 😀

I'll definitely be watching this -- though I never liked Marky Mark. But I trust Peter Jackson.

I am really wanting to see this movie but the bad reviews that are coming in is not making me thrilled. Like the Road I will go see it on my own merit and let the negativity slide by the way side.

I only have a few weeks to finish the book...I better get right to it!

#9 Caitie Heath Ledger's final film (sorry I don't want to type the whole thing out. You know what I'm talking about.) = The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus Don't get me wrong ... but the title of the movie was shorter and I am sure they will know what are you talking about 😉

i loved the book when i read it and the story was interesting and a little too sad. i'm looking forward to this, i love the cast and all. the only thing i don't like is Saoirse Ronan's voiceover.... she's speaking kinda weird, like she's trying to be husky, but it doesn't sound right. yet anyway, i'm looking forward to this, especially for one part of the story (i'm very curious about how peter jackson will pull it off)

i dont think it's what they make into a true heaven, i think it's what she perceives as heaven but it seems more like a purgatory because she can still communicate with the physical world and help catch her killer

#5 Are you kidding me? Valid point? Why don't you go tell some kids there's no such thing as Santa Claus while your at it and than kick them in the privates. Scrouge. By the way, to quote Tom Hanks: "It's a movie people. It's not reality. It's a mooooovie." No matter what you believe in, don't get too caught up in the idea that a movie equals reality at any level. Just be entertained by it.

#5 Troll. Alex please that pic of her does not do her justice. Also its her perfect world, its the same thing as What Dreams May Come, he made a fantasy of what he expected Heaven to look like then Albert showed him the true heaven.
