First trailer for the Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart drama Rabbit Hole is now online

10.22.2010

Just released is the new trailer for the latest film from John Cameron Mitchell (SHORTBUS, HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH) called RABBIT HOLE, about a husband and wife coping with the death of their young son. The film played to some pretty positive reception at the recent Toronto Film Festival. Specifically, Nicole Kidman's performance has been touted as being a shoe-in come awards season (you'll be seeing a lot of that in these Fall and Winter months).

The film stars Kidman and Aaron Eckhart as the grieving parents, Dianne Wiest (HANNAH AND HER SISTERS), Tammy Blanchard (THE GOOD SHEPHERD), Miles Teller (FOOTLOOSE), Spike Lee regular Giancarlo Esposito (DO THE RIGHT THING), Jon Tenney (TOMBSTONE), Patricia Kalember (JACOB'S LADDER), Julie Lauren (KISSING JESSICA STEIN), and Sandra Oh (SIDEWAYS).

RABBIT HOLE opens December 17th. Watch the trailer here or over at Apple in HD.

Synopsis: RABBIT HOLE is a vivid, hopeful, honest and unexpectedly witty portrait of a family searching for what remains possible in the most impossible of all situations. Becca and Howie Corbett (NICOLE KIDMAN and AARON ECKHART) are returning to their everyday existence in the wake of a shocking, sudden loss. Just eight months ago, they were a happy suburban family with everything they wanted. Now, they are caught in a maze of memory, longing, guilt, recrimination, sarcasm and tightly controlled rage from which they cannot escape. While Becca finds pain in the familiar, Howie finds comfort. The shifts come in abrupt, unforeseen moments. Becca hesitantly opens up to her opinionated, loving mother (DIANNE WIEST) and secretly reaches out to the teenager involved in the accident that changed everything (MILES TELLER); while Howie lashes out and imagines solace with another woman (SANDRA OH). Yet, as off track as they are, the couple keeps trying to find their way back to a life that still holds the potential for beauty, laughter and happiness. The resulting journey is an intimate glimpse into two people learning to re-engage with each other and a world that has been tilted off its axis.

I actually thought Kidman was pretty good in Invasion or in Australia. Other than that she's been pretty bland.

John Cameron Mitchell's previous movies were quite pretentious, going with the ''trash is art'' type of creativity, but this look alright. Aaron Eckhart should bring some honesty to the film.

Looks brilliant. I love depressing movies like this. Balls to the wall honesty.

Aaron Eckhart would have made a GREAT Captain America.

This is just a different vision of a re-cycled concept.

Wow, that trailer just completely sold me on a premise I had completely dismissed when first hearing about it. Were John Cameron Mitchell's other movies any good?

Nice to see Nicole Kidman making a bit of a comeback. She's an amazing actress, and hit a real stride in the early aughts (though her best is still "To Die For"), but I admit somewhere during the latter half of the decade she turned in some stiff performances. This looks pretty terrific, if damn depressing.

And I also never really understood why people seemed to hate on Kidman within the past few years. Even if the movies weren't standouts in themselves, she still shined. Just within the past five years, she owned in Australia, Margot at the Wedding, The Interpreter. I even thought she played an excellent villain in The Golden Compass.

I love Kidman, and I'm glad she's gonna definitely be in contention for awards this year. She deserves it.

Besides the fact that James Mercer singing over this trailer is enough to make me grant it Oscar gold, I think it looks absolutely brilliant. I had been looking forward to it for a long, long time, but really I was just going by the cast and story.

I can't wait now.

I'm glad the trailer doesn't go too in-depth into the film. This was one of the better movies at the film fest this year. It's not all that plot-driven - it's a character-centric chamber piece but it is always well-acted and sensitively directed and it's the Kidman show through-and-through (though everyone else is great in it from Dianne Wiest to Aaron Eckhart to Miles Teller). What I liked most about it was that it wasn't the depressing down-on-itself affair I had expected, rather, while it

What I liked most about it was that it wasn't the depressing down-on-itself affair I had expected, rather, while it was melancholy, it could also be pretty funny. The script never puts a wrong foot down imo and, as a result, it builds a melancholy power in its portrayal of this grieving couple..

Kidman is great

Too bad Antichrist did killed this subject with its unabashed brilliance. Kidman is always great. Problem is she was in a lot of crap starting towards the middle of the last decade.
