Full Trailer for Joachim Trier's Powerful Drama 'Louder Than Bombs'
"There's no story in a car accident… so people have to make one up." Motlys presents this new full-length Norwegian trailer for Joachim Trier's Louder Than Bombs, a drama that first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year. The latest work from the Danish director of Oslo, August 31st, Louder Than Bombs is an English language feature about a car accident that kills a mother of a family. This trailer really reveals that it's much more about struggling with grief, recovery and making amends with what happened - see the first teaser trailer here. Jesse Eisenberg stars as Jonah, along with Amy Ryan, Gabriel Byrne, David Strathairn, Devin Druid and Isabelle Huppert. This looks very powerful, very emotional. Take a look.
An upcoming exhibition celebrating photographer Isabelle Reed three years after her untimely death, brings her eldest son Jonah back to the family house – forcing him to spend more time with his father Gene and withdrawn younger brother Conrad than he has in years. With the three of them under the same roof, Gene tries desperately to connect with his two sons, but they struggle to reconcile their feelings about the woman they remember so differently. Louder Than Bombs is directed by Danish filmmaker Joachim Trier, of the films Reprise and Oslo, August 31st previously. The script is by Joachim Trier and fellow filmmaker Eskil Vogt. This premiered at the Cannes Film Festival back in May playing In Competition, and will be released next spring in the US by The Orchard. Stay tuned for updates on the release. Your thoughts?

I just saw this one at MIFF last month, really enjoyed it. Felt like a genuine insight into family loss with characters that felt very real to life, and as result really hit home with me because of how authentic I felt it was. What really stood out was the relationship between the father and son, Devin Druid really standing out here, which I felt overshadowed Jesse Eisenberg. But in terms of the trailer, I wouldn't watch it if you haven't seen this yet. The teaser was really well done, I think it tapped into how the movie was delivered. I felt like this trailer was really off with it's tone.
