Matthew McConaughey talks life and death in The Sea of Trees trailer
Arthur Brennan (Matthew McConaughey) treks into Aokigahara, known as The Sea of Trees (that's the title!), which is a mysterious and dense forest at the base of Japan's Mount Fuji where people go to commit suicide. On his journey, he encounters Takumi Nakamura (Ken Watanabe), a Japanese man who has lost his way after attempting suicide. The two men begin a journey of reflection and survival in this trailer for Gus Van Sant's THE SEA OF TREES.
Alright, so we don't have the feel-good movie of the year on our hands with this one. Still, all of the lead actors are fantastic. McConaughey, in particular, I could probably watch just walk around a forest for 2 hours and still be into it. With that said, I hope there's a little bit more to it than that as far as this movie is concerned.
THE SEA OF TREES will open in theaters on August 26, 2016.
