Watch: New US Trailer for Stephen Daldry's 'Trash' Film Set in Brazil
"Through all of that, why did they stick with it?" "Because it was right." An official US trailer has debuted for the film Trash, directed by Stephen Daldry, co-directed by Christian Duurvoort, about three kids in Brazil who find something in the trash that changes their lives. We've been posting about this film for a while already, featuring a couple of different trailers over the years. What we saw back then was much more like a City of God, with the story of kids growing up within the crazy world of Brazil. This trailer looks much more mainstream, with some familiar faces that speak English to help guide us through the story. Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen are in this, along with Wagner Moura. I'm still very interested in seeing this.
Here's the new official US trailer for Stephen Daldry's Trash, originally from Yahoo:
When two trash-picking boys from Rio’s slums find a wallet in their local dump, little do they imagine that their lives are about to change forever. But when the local police show up, offering a handsome reward for the wallet’s return, the boys, Rafael (Rickson Tevez) and Gardo (Luis Eduardo), realise that what they’ve found must be important. Teaming up with their friend Rato (Gabriel Weinstein), the trio begins an extraordinary adventure as they try to hang onto the wallet, evade the police, and uncover the secrets it contains. Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen & Wagner Moura also star in Trash, directed by Stephen Daldry (The Reader) and written by Richard Curtis (Love Actually). The film originally opened in 2004 after premiering at the Rio de Janeiro Film Festival. Trash finally arrives in US theaters + VOD starting on October 9th.

Yea, I'm with you on this one, Alex. I too am very interested in seeing this movie. Daldry's film The Reader was just an excellent film! I like Rooney Mara a lot and to me she's the most interesting of all the young actresses out there working today. Plus, I like the way she stays off the radar and away from all the 'celebrity/cultural media nonsense. Thanks for the continuing heads-up on this film.

Exactly! Jeez! Thanks, Alex. I thought I'd made myself pretty clear. At least you, being the head guy and all...lol.. here at First Showing understood me....and agreed to boot! That's gotta count for something. Right?..lol... Looking forward to your review when you see this film.

Mike Davis describes in his book 'Planet of Slums' very clearly where little boys like these come from. It's very refreshing to see someone is trying to make a movie about that invisible and socially tragic world of slums. Daldry, indeed, since Billy Eliot, can make a good movie. And I like seeing Martin Sheen again. And on this occasion, he reminds me here on Jack Lemmon, which is, quite honestly, very different actor of classical posture, and on his film (with Sissy Spacek and directed by Costa Gavras) the Missing (1982). I know, it's overstretched, but I couldn't resist ...

Rooney Mara? Sold.

TRASH still looks like an emotional powerhouse. But that poster looks like a straight to VOD spin-off of SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE.

Have to agree with you, its a terrible poster in my opinion.
