Boyhood TV Spot

It's finally time for Richard Linklater's incredible coming-of-age masterpiece Boyhood to hit theaters this weekend. We've been ranting and raving about the film since it premiered at Sundance this year, and the project that's been 12 years in the making is finally coming your way. Unfortunately, it might take awhile to hit a theater in your area, but you can check out the entire timeline for expansion into theaters around the country right here. In the meantime, check out this awesome new TV spot for the film, which begins with a series of photos showing star Ellar Coltrane aging over 12 years of production on this special film. Watch!

Here's the newest TV spot for Richard Linklater's Boyhood, debuted by SlashFilm:

Filmed from 2002 to 2013, Boyhood covers 12 years in the life of a family. Mason (Ellar Coltrane) and his older sister, Samantha (Lorelei Linklater), learn to face the realities of growing up, while their divorced parents cope with the ongoing challenges of parenting in an ever-evolving landscape. Richard Linklater (Dazed and Confused, School of Rock, Before Sunrise, Bernie) directs the film, using the same actors, including Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as the Mason's parents, over 11 years of production. The film premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and IFC Films will release it in limited theaters on July 11th.

Very cool. Linklater seems to love these decade long projects. He is a patient man.
