Colin Farrell, Ed Harris, and Jim Sturgess go on a journey to freedom in The Way Back trailer

10.12.2010

This trailer for Peter Weir's THE WAY BACK was put on this site a few days ago, but we never ran an article for it.

I wanted to put this up for anyone who might have missed it as it seemed to slip through the cracks. We haven't posted anything on this film since last year in December. Sadly, I had actually forgotten about it. I have no clue how that could have happened since Weir is a great director and this should be an interesting film. It's based on the novel "The Long Walk: The True Story of a Trek to Freedom" by Slavomir Rawicz. The story is a true one based on the soldiers who escaped the Siberian gulag in 1940.

From the looks of this first trailer, the movie looks like it's going to be spectacular. Check it out below along with a synopsis.

Synopsis: After escaping a Siberian labor camp in 1940, seven courageous multi-national prisoners discover the true meaning of friendship as their epic journey takes them across thousands of miles of hostile terrain en-route to India and their freedom."

Weir is truly great

He's a terrific storyteller and a master craftsman, probably the most overlooked in the business. Favourite film by Weir? Picnic at Hanging Rock - beautiful and haunting

Looks good

The trailer looks good though a bit over the top (probably it's just the trailer). The people involved are what intrigues me. As for ET: I've got to go with Truman Show. Great movie

Never heard of this before, but I'll be damned if that trailer doesn't make this look like it's going to be a fantastic, award-winning film.

Oddly, Weir is my fave director

Picnic at Hanging Rock, easily, though all of them have merit...even "Green Card" (the only one he wrote).

Looks fantastic. Loved the score in the trailer. The Truman Show was a great movie. One of the best of the last decade.

I have never seen a Peter Weir film I didn't like. But easily, my favorite is "The Truman Show," which is also among my favorite movies of all time. Any match-up including Colin Farrell, Ed Harris, and Saoirse Ronan is worthy of my attention, especially since Farrell is becoming my new favorite, and Harris is a man who ought to have an Oscar by now. But if Peter Weir's name is on there, then it's a must-see. And I still haven't seen "The Mosquito Coast" or "The Last Wave."

Some films must be seen on the Big Screen this looks like one of them.
Don't you love a Epic.

Wow, this looks epic! I hope this has a 2010 release date because it looks like it could easily be one of the years best!

i've read that it's getting a limited release in late December for Oscar considerations and then a wide release early 2011.
