Official: The Way Back trailer

Finally...the official trailer to a film I have been looking forward to since I heard the book ( The Long Walk ) was finally being adapted into a movie.
Directed by the great Peter Weir ( The Truman Show, Witness, Master and Commander ) and starring Jim Sturgess, Ed Harris, Colin Farrell, Saoirse Ronan, Mark Strong, Gustav Skarsgard and Dragos Bucur.

The Way Back is about a group of prisoners who escaped from a Siberian gulag during World War II. The film's screenplay also by Weir is based on the memoir by SÅ‚awomir Rawicz, the character that Sturgess will be portraying. I read the book, and found it to be a pretty compelling experience.

It will be released in limited fashion on December 29, and then spread wide on January 21, 2011.

I love most of Peter Weir films and this looks very promising.

Hey Dark Night, where have you been. Been about a year since I last heard from you.

I too have been looking forward to this film. Read the book earlier this year.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
