After premiering at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival this past summer, the newest film from About Schmidt and The Descendants director is coming to theaters this fall, in all its black and white glory. Complete with an old Paramount Pictures logo, the first trailer for Nebraska shows off the quirky road trip that a son (Will Forte) must take with his grumpy old father (Bruce Dern) as they embark on a trip to claim a sweepstakes prize that the patriarch thinks he's won. This definitely has the charm and drama between laughter we've come to expect from Payne, and it could be a breakthrough performance for Forte. Watch!

Here's the first trailer for Alexander Payne's Nebraska, originally from Apple:

Also here's the first retro poster for the film, courtesy of The Guardian:


Nebraska is directed by Oscar winning, Nebraska-born filmmaker Alexander Payne, of the films Citizen Ruth, Election, About Schmidt, Sideways and The Descendants previously. The screenplay was written by Bob Nelson and follows a cantankerous father (Bruce Dern) who thinks he’s struck it rich after receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail. So he wrangles his son (Will Forte) into taking a road trip to claim the fortune. The film already premiered 2013 Cannes Film Festival and Paramount Pictures has set an initial release date for Nebraska in limited theaters starting November 22nd, just in time for Oscar season.

Payne is 5/5 in my book. Can't wait to see this. Looking forward to Forte and Dern.
