Nick Hornby’s A LONG WAY DOWN is Now a Movie, Here is the Trailer

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014


Here is the first trailer for director Pascal Chaumeil’s (Heartbreaker) adaptation of the Nick Hornby novel A Long Way Down.  The story revolves around a group of strangers who coincidentally meet on the top of a London skyscraper on New Year’s Eve where they individually had gone to commit suicide and “Instead of jumping, these four strangers make a pact to stay alive and stay together until Valentine’s Day at least”.  That sounds watchable already; I never read this one but I do like me some Hornby adaptations (About a Boy, An Education, High Fidelity) so it won’t take a lot to sell me on this.

The film also stars Rosamund Pike, Sam Neill, and Tuppence Middleton.  A Long Way Down opens in the U.K. on March 21st; check out the trailer after the synopsis below:

New Year’s Eve on the top of a London skyscraper. MARTIN (Brosnan) is literally on the edge. A once-beloved TV personality, he’s now desperate to jump. But he’s not alone. Single mother MAUREEN, (Collette), sassy teen JESS (Poots), and failed musician turned pizza-delivery boy JJ (Paul), have all turned up on the same roof with the same plan.  Instead of jumping, these four strangers make a pact to stay alive and stay together until Valentine’s Day at least. Both funny and poignant, A LONG WAY DOWN follows this group of unlikely friends as they try to pull back from the brink.

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

jpHere is first trailer for the 3D re-release of Jurassic Park, Steven Spielberg’s 1993 classic that is sure to stir up all sorts of nostalgia with fans.  We did a CoF Show about the trilogy, so there’s that.

It would be worth seeing Jurassic Park on the big screen, if not for the post 3D conversion.  We talked about on the show that the effects hold up very well after 20 years, the trailer does a good job at making us look like truth tellers.

The film stars Sam Neill, Richard Attenborough, Laura Dern, Joseph Mazzello, Ariana Richards, Wayne Knight, and Samuel L. Jackson.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer, Jurassic Park 3D hits theaters on April 5th, 2013.
