The Book Thief

We've already seen the stellar trailer for the World War II drama The Monuments Men from director George Clooney, featuring an all-star cast that includes Matt Damon, Bill Murray and more. Now another drama in the heart of Nazi Germany is on the way with The Book Thief, based on Markus Zusak's bestelling novel of the same name. Liesel Meminger (Sophie Nélisse) is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist: books. With the help of her foster father (Geoffrey Rush), she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her family's basement. Watch!

Here's the first trailer for Brian Percival's The Book Thief, originally from Apple:

Based on the beloved bestselling book by Markus Zusak, The Book Thief is directed by Brian Percival ("Downton Abbey") and wirtten by Michael Petroni (The Rite, The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys). The film tells the inspirational story of a spirited and courageous young girl named Liesel Meminger (Sophie Nélisse) who transforms the lives of everyone around her in Nazi-occupied Germany when she is sent to live with a new family and discovers the magic of books, only to share it with anyone she can. Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson also star in the drama which 20th Century Fox releases in theaters on November 15th this fall.

The voice-over ruined the trailer.

Exactly. Shoved it right into the Hallmark channel.

It reminded me of the trailers they used to make in the 90s

I'd rather read subtitles than listen to bad accents.
