This trailer for Terry George‘s Reservation Road (Focus Features, 10.19) is made up of fairly persuasive stuff. Sorta looks like this year’s Little Children, but with the icky-dweeby sexual predator factor replaced by parental grief (followed by obsessive rage) over a lost child. Joaquin Phoenix, Mark Ruffalo, Jeinnifer Connelly and Mira Sorvino costar. Focus needs to hope and pray it doesn’t get an early rave from David Poland….aaahhh!
Where are the high-def trailers? The low-rez trailer up now looks more than a little shitty. Plus Reservation Road is opening only two months from now and there’s no official website in sight. Focus marketing needs to shag ass.
Getting this straight once again: Reservation Road, an emotionally intense adult drama set in Connecticut that’s based on a respected 1999 novel by John Burnham Schwartz, will open on 10.19. Sam Mendes‘ Revolutionary Road, an emotionally intense adult drama set in Connecticut that’s based on a respected 1961 novel by Richard Yates, will open sometime in 2008 via DreamWorks. Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet are costarring.
