The Lovely Bones trailer

This trailer for Peter Jackson’s adaptation of Alice Sebold’s novel, “The Lovely Bones”, arrived whilst I was away on holiday and is certainly worth your time – posted most obviously as it’s the next major movie to feature Rolling Eyeballs’ adopted actress Rachel Weisz .

The trailer suggests, as you might expect, a drama more akin to the Peter Jackson of “Heavenly Creatures” than the blockbuster sturm und drang of his “Lord of the Rings” trilogy – for some viewers this will be an entirely welcome thing.

For my money, this is a difficult novel to adapt and it’s intriguing to see just how (SPOILER BEGINS) Jackson has visualized Susie Salmon’s personal view of the afterlife, given that this very issue apparently caused a short-lived shut-down in production during filming (SPOILER ENDS).
