‘The Way Back’ trailer

Posted by · 2:01 pm · November 4th, 2010

Back-to-back trailers today.  A few weeks back we got a look at Peter Weir’s “The Way Back” via the UK trailer.  The poster hit recently.  Today, Yahoo! Movies has the domestic trailer for the film, which has the proper energy, I think.  Check it out by clicking the image below or watch an embed after the jump.

    Read the book it was based off of… Great book, but then later read accusations questioning the accuracy of the tales in the book. Makes one wonder because it does seem rather far fetched.

    As long as that “epic” trailer music is not in the film. I hate music like that.

    Looks pretty epic. Can’t wait to see it. I’m still not totally convinced of the Oscar potential, but I’m very much looking forward to just seeing the movie.

    looks good enough for the BP oscar. But, my only concern is its late release date.

    i really dislike this trailer, but i’m sure that Peter Weir has crafted another epic achievement and the performances look good

    I didn’t enjoy the last trailer, but I oddly really liked this one. It doesn’t make sense because they’re pretty much the same, but whatever.

    Same. I think its getting to see the footage in HD that makes the difference.

    Cant wait to hear you and Anne discuss the film on the next podcast.

    Looks really great.

    But come on, why does someone always have to say “it tastes like chicken” when a group of people eat a snake!? :-D

    (I’ll remember to be that someone if it ever happens to me)

    I actually LIKE the UK trailer more, but this trailer is much more commercial-friendly.

    Am I the only one who thought this trailer made the movie look like an action blockbuster?

    I’m sure the movie is great, but these trailers are oddly unaffecting. Maybe it’s the jumpy editing, maybe the “been there, done that” music and overall vibe.

    The problem with these trailers is that you have here a great cast, directed by a legendary director and all they do is run around and shout a lot.

    Yes, they have a long way to go, we get it. What else is in the film!?!

    Not the greatest trailers ever, but certainly not the worst either. It definitely looks grand, like a proper Best Picture nominee. Considering the acclaim it already has, it only makes me want to see it even more badly. I do hope the late release date won’t hurt it.

    Given the right campaign, it could be a contender, and I’m more convinced of it’s chances than Another Year or The Fighter, that’s for sure.

    Yeah, I hope/think ‘The Way Back’ will make it into the 10. Decent campaign, good reviews, Weir, cast, tech team, etc.. I know we said that about ‘Nine’, but I don’t think ‘TWB’ is remotely a ‘Nine’.

    I think the “Blind Side slot” (I cringe at the term, but can’t think of a better one right now) would be ‘The Fighter’ …

    Bale in a stand-out, possible nomination-worthy role, Mark doing Mark, Amy doing Amy – but against type, Melissa Leo being her usual awesome self, mainstream flick that may eeeeek into the 10 because it’s ingredients could = success.

    It’s really good. I think it’s more effective than first trailer.Can’t wait to see the film!

    oh man. That looks incredible. I’m kinda pissed it’s essentially a 2011 film for anyone outside of L.A. or NYC.
