Official US Trailer + Poster for Joachim Trier's 'Louder Than Bombs'
"It's our life. It's our family's life!" The Orchard has debuted a new poster and trailer for the upcoming US release of Joachim Trier's indie Louder Than Bombs, which played at the Cannes Film Festival last year. Jesse Eisenberg stars as Jonah, along with Amy Ryan, Gabriel Byrne, David Strathairn, Devin Druid and Isabelle Huppert. The film is about how two boys cope with growing up after their mother is killed in a car crash, which is shown in vivid detail in this trailer and in the film. There's something very emotionally appealing about this, I'm not sure what it is, but every single trailer draws me in. Maybe it's just the way Isabelle Huppert walks around… I'm still looking forward to catching this soon. Take a look below.
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Joachim Trier's Louder Than Bombs, direct from YouTube:
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death, brings her eldest son Jonah back to the family house – forcing him to spend more time with his father Gene and withdrawn younger brother Conrad than he has in years.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 first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last May in competition, and will be released by The Orchard. Louder Than Bombs opens in select theaters on April 8th, plus on VOD this July.

Thanks for bringing this film to my attention, Alex. It looks to be a very serious film about loss and grief which are very painful for those experiencing these feelings. And what a great, great cast with Huppert and Byrne and Strathairn. I've always liked Eisenberg, especially in The Social Network, and it's good to see him involved in a film like this. I know nothing of the younger actor, but he's keeping good company. The fact that it's a Danish director who will no doubt bring a European sensibility to the project is a huge plus to me. Meaning, it will have a mature and intelligent rendering of these dark feelings rather than a typical maudlin and sentimental approach most American films would take. We'll see. Thanks again, Alex.

It's a second trailer and it still looks good. I'm very glad to see G. Byrne after a long time.
