Lovely Bones Trailer

Aug. 5, 2009by: Tony Lang

Lovely Bones book cover

It HAS been a long time since Peter Jackson's THE LOVELY BONES preview page" href="../upcomingmovies/movies.php?id=2977" target="_blank">THE LOVELY BONES was announced, and we've all been jonesing for a peek at it ever since. The wait is now over, at least so we can crave it even more.

The film is based on the best-selling novel from Alice Sebold and a script by Jackson himself with, as usual, Philippa Boyens and Fran Walsh. Which one is married to him again? Keep forgetting... Anyhoo, the story follows a murdered young girl who journeys through the afterlife while watching her family trying to cope with and solve her death.

Two things I retain from watching the trailer. One: it has the look and feel of Jackson's pre-Rings work, namely HEAVENLY CREATURES. And Two: Michael Imperioli's in this? SPIDER! Things just got even cooler for that movie! Watch and rejoice: Only 5 months to go. So enjoy the trailer down there, or check out its APPLE HD version.

Extra Tidbit: Will this film help the awesome Stanley Tucci take his rightful place among the great creeps of movie history?

Hey Joblo...

Kind of silly to give the trailer 3 hamburgers because it has "too much cg" when half the book takes place in this girl's own personal heaven. How else are you supposed to portray that? Go on location? Give it 3 hamburgers for a legitimate reason instead of assuming it has too much cg when you don't even know the story. Such a random thing to decide from a trailer anyway. It has too much cg, even though the trailer is two minutes long and can't possibly be an accurate representation of the

One of the most heart breaking books I've ever read. And the trailer looks great; the movie will be well worth the wait.

Amazing!

What an incredible trailer and an amazing looking film. I wasn't excited at all before but now I officially am. I smell Oscars for this flick...especially for Stanley Tucci who I've always been a huge fan of.

Smarmy Douche is correct

The killer is revealed in the first 3 chapters. This is not a spoiler and this story is not a whodunnit! If you have not read the book, do not comment on the trailer, there is so much more to this story than who the killer is.

REGARDING SPOILERS

For those of you freaking out about giving the killer away in the trailer, just know that you find out who he is in the opening scene of the movie. (first chapter of the book)

It's not about finding the killer. It's about coping with the death of a family member, both for the family and the member that died.

This movie looks great, but...damn, did they have to show so much?! i wish they didn't give away the whole last part with the killer and the girl running around in his house etc. i mean what the fuck!?

still, looks like a great movie and those "heaven?" scenes look AMAZING!

I haven't read the book in a few years, but I remember the killer being revealed immediately, as he is someone who Susie knows and.. you know.. kills her. He is known from just about chapter one, it's not a spoiler.

The story isn't about finding the killer, it's about knowing in your heart who the killer is and not being able to prove it.

On that note, part of the ending, and I think those who have read the book know exactly what I'm talking about, was totally anticlimactic, which while

I'm looking forward to his, but again, that trailer had piss poor editing, it looked like something an amateur on Youtube would make.

So we're fucking giving away the identity of the villain in trailers for mysteries these days?

Film still looks great.

Awful

This is one of the worst trailers I've ever seen. I'm sure the movie will be good but this trailer left a bad taste in my mouth

I kinda like the trailer but they shouldn't have given away the killer & I agree some of the music is corny. But it looks like a Peter Jackson fantasy, which usually rox.

I agree, ChinoMoreno7, that was a TERRIBLE fucking trailer. Between the cheesy thriller music they put on it, and giving the identity of the killer away (or did they? Never read the book), this trailer did nothing for me. Considering it's Peter Jackson, and the amount of anticipation, you'd really think they could've done a better job on the preview. That said, I still want to see it.

This one looks like a winner, no doubt. Count me in 100%. I never doubted Jackson, I just never saw this coming is all.

Looks like this is going to feature some good work from Jackson. The trailer in itself though isn't very involving, as far as trailers go. And Wahlberg looks a bit stiff.

What Dreams May Bones

Yuck! This looks bad. All the worse coming from jackson. I don't care what anyone says - the real peter jackson was kidnapped right after the academy awards and the skinny evil looking, less talented guy was put in his place.

yeah, i like the look, not exactly what i thought some of it would look like, and wahlberg as the father still kind of sucks. Anyone know where you can download an hd version?

Hey Studios...

STOP SHOWING ME THE WHOLE MOVIE!!! I want a taste, just something to tease me. A good trailer is one like Dark Knight or Indy 4 where I just got a feel for the movie, not all the plot points. Hell, when you go into Funny People knowing that Sandler is going to get sick and then recover (a la the trailer), what's the fucking point?

After that well deserved rant though, movie doesn't look half bad.

Decent trailer...

...but I think it divulged too much of the story. The set up is great but did we really need to see WHO the killer is AND a major suspense set piece? A little restraint from the studio would have been nice.

Agreed, they should have ended that part of the trailer when she kicks open the basement window BUT it keeps going for like 10 seconds.

about time....

....but it was worth the wait. This doesn't look like the way I had expected it but, in fact, it looks even better, especially the visual effects.

I can't wait for it to come out. And who knows....with the Academy bumping the Best Pic noms to 10, this movie might have a chance.

I agree since you end up watching the same ad over and over, but 9 times out of 10, there is a link to the original source where you can see the trailer without ads. At least you don't have to go to the Joblo video site anymore.

Okay, I understand JoBlo needs to make some money, but I find it insulting and really stupid that I have to sit through an advertisement to watch an advertisement.

What are you talking about? Do you mean the ad before the trailer? The trailer is actually CONTENT. If it was an "ad" as you seem to imply, why would you want to watch it?

The first ad is a real ad, you're right. We gotta pay the bills, my friend. The site is FREE, remember? ;)
