The Trailer For ‘Extremely Close and Extremely Loud’ Is Melodramatic To The Extreme

incrediblycloseI feel restrained considering the subject matter, but here it goes anyways: I want to punch that little kid in the face.  Thomas Horn who’s only other credit is having won Teen Jeopardy back in 2009 just ruined any chance of interest I had in this movie.  Saying that, it probably wasn’t his idea to shake a tambourine and play U2 music to the action on screen.

Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock star in Extremely Close and Extremely Loud, which is based on the novel of the same name. The movie was directed by Stephen Daldry and also stars Thomas Horn, Max von Sydow, Viola Davis, John Goodman, Jeffrey Wright and James Gandolfini.   The film is set during the events of September 11th, and tells the story of a young boy who loses his father in the terrorist attack and his journey from loss to the healing power of self-discovery.

The movie is set to be release on December 25th, watch the trailer below:
