Official US Trailer for Jeunet's 'The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet'
"They think I'm an adult." The Weinstein Company has put out a last minute new US trailer for Jean-Pierre Jeunet's The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet. You've probably heard of this one before, because it opened in Europe two years ago, in 2013, and has been delayed by The Weinstein Company for release until now. They're quietly dumping the new Jeunet film in select theaters this weekend. We've posted at least one trailer for this a few years ago, but another brand new trailer has just debuted for this week's opening. Kyle Catlett (who went on to star in Poltergeist after making this) plays T.S. Spivet in this quirky adventure about a ten-year-old cartographer who travels solo across the country. I might still check it out sometime.
The official US trailer for Jean-Pierre Jeunet's The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet, via YouTube:
The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet is directed by veteran French filmmaker Jean-Pierre Jeunet, of Delicatessen, The City of Lost Children, Amélie, Micmacs, who also co-wrote the film with his Amelie and Micmacs co-writer Guillaume Laurant. A 12-year-old cartographer (Kyle Catlett of "The Following") secretly leaves his family's ranch in Montana where he lives with his cowboy father and scientist mother and travels across the country on board a freight train to receive an award at the Smithsonian Institute. Niamh Wilson, Jakob Davies, Helena Bonham Carter, Judy Davis, Robert Maillet and Callum Keith Rennie all star. The film opened in France way back in 2013, and is just now getting a very small US release from The Weinstein Company. The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet will open in select US theaters starting July 31st. Cool?

This movie does look like a lot of fun. Also, I really enjoy the coloring in this (eye catching).

Jean-Pierre Jeunet is the man.

Didn't he (J-P Jeunet) directed Amelie? I sense the same energy. I liked Amelie, so, will consider it. Although, I'm afraid he's repeating the directorial gesture and this time with the kid ...

Yes, he did and a lot of other great films worth checking out, including Mic Macs, The City of Lost Children, A Very Long Engagement and the masterpiece Delicatessen. Great filmmaker!

I know them. Amelie and A Very Long Engagement are my favorite ... As for Delicatessen, I remember it dimly since I saw it last time in 1990s. I actually saw it in cinema first time it started playing and it was interesting to me then ...

Just imagine him sleeping under a bridge with homeless dudes. This actually looks good, cheesy as anything but who cares.
