Rate-a-Trailer: Peter Jackson’s The Lovely Bones


After getting a sneak preview yesterday, today the trailer for Peter Jackson’s adaptation of Alice Sebold’s The Lovely Bones is up and available for your viewing pleasure, with an introduction by Jackson himself. Fifteen-year-old Saoirse Ronan stars at Susie Salmon, the murdered main character who narrates the story from heaven. Rachel Weisz and Mark Wahlberg play her parents, and Susan Sarandon makes what we believe is her grandmotherly debut. Will nerds turn out for a post-LOTR Peter Jackson without the draw of a giant primate? This may help: Pitchfork reports that Brian Eno scored the film. It’s set to open in December — Oscar bait, of course.
