The Stephen Daldry-directed ‘Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close’ is tailor-made for Award season glory (and, really, anyone who owns stock in Kleenex). The emotional story is narrated by nine-year-old Oskar Schell (Thomas Horn), who loses his father in the terrorist attacks on 9/11. While the first clip gave you a brief look at the film, it’s the second trailer that really gets into the thick of things, as we follow both the events on that harrowing day, and Oskar on his journey through New York City to find a lockbox his father (Tom Hanks) left him. Sandra Bullock stars as Oskar’s mother, trying to come to grips with the death of her husband.
The movie, based on the 2005 novel by Jonathan Safran Foer, features an all-star cast, including Hanks, Bullock, Jeffrey Wright, Max Von Sydow, Viola Davis, John Goodman and James Gandolfini. Can you say Oscar bait?
