The Weinstein Company has debuted this brand new US trailer for Sam Taylor-Wood's Nowhere Boy, the fantastic film telling the "untold" story of how John Lennon and Paul McCartney came together as teenagers to start the legendary band The Beatles. Thinking back to Sundance, where I first saw this (read my review), it's definitely one film that has stuck with me and I will definitely be seeing it again. It's a great film directed by a great up-and-coming filmmaker and starring some talented actors, including Aaron Johnson (from Kick-Ass) as John Lennon and Thomas Sangster (from Love Actually) as Paul McCartney. Watch below!

A chronicle of John Lennon's childhood starring Aaron Johnson, Thomas Sangster, as well as Sam Bell.
Nowhere Boy is directed by English visual artist Sam Taylor-Wood, marking her feature directorial debut after directing the '08 short film Love You More. The screenplay was written by Matt Greenhalgh, who also wrote the Joy Division biopic Control, and is based on the memoirs of John Lennon written by Julia Baird. This first premiered at the London Film Festival last year and received four BAFTA Awards nominations. The Weinstein Company is distributing Nowhere Boy in the US, hitting theaters on October 8th this fall.
Don't lie to me 14yr old John Lennon!!! (Dewey Cox) in case you dont get it. Me, looks all right. Except the fact that the guy playing John Lennon looks nothing like him.

It's a really good film, shows how damaged Lennon was and touched a little on his sometimes violent nature. It did touch on how he was afraid of cripples or the mentally disabled, whom he would often shout abuse at, but I suppose your still meant to like him at the end. Definitely worth a watch.

This looks awesome. Could they have found a stranger looking Paul though? I agree#8, Lennon had a weird voice(maybe not in Liverpool), and Johnson nailed it.

the original trailer is much much better , check it out on youtube. already saw the movie and this trailer does not do justice at all.

I guess when you're Australian you have to hold on to what little victories you can?

FWIW, it came out in the U.K. two days ago on DVD/BD too if you want to buy it.

What have I learned? Apparently Americans don't like being told that a movie has already come out in other countries. Because that's all I did.
overwatch on May 14, 2010
It's not that Americans don't like being told that a movie is already out, the fact of the matter is this is a trailer for a movie that WILL be coming to THEATERS. Who cares that it's already out in Australia, we don't have access to that. So for us, this is worth watching.

Looks good...hope it is historically accurate. There is a picture circulating on the blogs of the lads when they were really young...and Paul does look like a child. Looking at the photo, it's amazing to know that they changed, (and are still changing, really) the world.

@18 You're right it was a harmless comment, I just felt like getting a little jab in there.

An England that is fast disappearing. Thanks Labour.

A goof from the movie, in the scene after the trip to Blackpool, Julia Lennon says that they have spent the day on the South Pier, the pier that appears is the North Pier.

The movie was nice. The guy playing john lennon seemed familiar. I gave myself a bump in the head when I realized he's the same guy who played kick-ass.
Christian on May 19, 2010
this story has already been told.... ive seen preety much the same thing when i was like 16 and im sure by then it had been out already for a while...

This is already in theaters in Slovenia as well and it's pretty good, but not great. Aaron Johnson is alright but it's Kristin Scott-Thomas that steals the show and in my opinion the only one that could possibly get an oscar nod. Anne-Marie Duff is fun but not awards-worthy.

Nowhere Boy makes sense to put it out October 8 2010 here in America. Hope the truth of John Lennon's life comes out too. John Lennon lovechild daughter goo goo ga ga. She is going to be bigger than the invention of the wheel. You are really going to see history in the making when it comes to Lovechildren. This is the grandaddy of the all. Finally someone will get DNA Money copyrights and the world for once will see that not all lovechildren lie. What a lesson to be learned. Hip hip horay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
