Where'd You Go, Bernadette Trailer

"Your hillside just slid into my home" Annapurna Pictures has debuted the second official trailer Richard Linklater's latest film Where'd You Go, Bernadette, based on Maria Semple's novel of the same name. The film is about a woman who runs away, as the title obviously indicates. After her anxiety-ridden mother disappears, 15-year-old Bee does everything to track her down, discovering details about her troubled past in the process. Newcomer Emma Nelson stars as Bee, with an impressive cast including Cate Blanchett as Bernadette, Billy Crudup, Kristen Wiig, James Urbaniak, Judy Greer, Troian Bellisario, Zoe Chao, and Laurence Fishburne. I'm always excited about the new Linklater film, but this one seems a bit too playful and campy, not what I was really expecting though it's not looking that bad. But I'm intrigued nonetheless and still want to see it - maybe there's something meaningful hidden within? Take a look below.

Here's the second trailer (+ poster) for Richard Linklater's Where'd You Go, Bernadette, on YouTube:

Where'd You Go, Bernadette is directed by iconic American filmmaker Richard Linklater, of films including Boyhood, Before Sunrise / Sunset / Midnight, Bernie, Me and Orson Welles, Fast Food Nation, School of Rock, Waking Life, Dazed and Confused, Slacker, Everybody Wants Some, and Last Flag Flying previously. The screenplay is co-written by Richard Linklater & Holly Gent & Vince Palmo; based on the novel written by Maria Semple. The film will likely premiere at a few film festivals before opening. Annapurna will release Linklater's Where'd You Go, Bernadette in select theaters starting August 16th, 2019. How does it look?

It's Linklater. So, resistance is futile ...

Not for me as I'm not a big Linklater fan. I've just never really liked any of his movies. Good for him that he has a large and loyal following though as he's at least unique and independent and doesn't make Hollywood crap. Cheers.

Well, we don't have to agree about everything. And I do respect your view about him and about his work. If I would take some critical stance about his work, I would say that it is a bit uneven. Some films are more and some are less appealing. But also, he makes insteresting and thoughtful films. Which is worth something for me. And yes, he's far from that Hollywood crap you mentioned. Cheers ...

Well said, shiboleth. My likes and dislikes are what they are and even though I kind of admire this filmmaker for being the unique filmmaker that he is it's not enough for me to care for his work. He's talented for sure, but just doesn't speak to me. Later gator.

Not one? Dazed and Confused? School of Rock? Waking Life? Boyhood? Me and Orson Welles? The "Before..." movies? His long list of films are so varied, he's a incredibly versatile and imaginative director, it's hard to imagine not liking ONE of his movies. Sometimes I wonder what you are doing even checking out trailers, dude. You don't seem to like anything (however, that slight Isabelle Huppert trailer got you all excited.) Oh well, carry on...

Sorry, kitanoO...well, not really....not a one of his do I like. It's true, there is not much these days regarding films that I like and my take is 'what's to like'? I like what I like and don't care what anyone thinks. I love film...certainly used to love a lot of films...just not much to like for me these days. No need to trouble yourself wondering what I'm doing even checking out trailer,'m retired after working many years in film and just killing time until time kills me. Film has always been a passion of mine and it is frustrating to not like so many that are being made today. Oh is a bitch and then you die!!

This looks good...reminds me of a James L Brooks movie...

I first thought this was a new Jason Reitman movie... This looks bad. Awful music, full of cliché lines and stale kookiness. Pass.
