Another Earth trailer
Mike Cahill's film, Another Earth, is far from the science fiction film you'd expect judging from the trailers we've seen to date. So far it's been about people, relationships, and what it means to be you, and I love that.
The trailer concentrates on a couple who have come together under very strange circumstances and the effect the appearance of another planet has on them. Not just any other planet though, a copy of Earth with a copy of everyone else on it.
Mike Cahill's film, which he co-wrote with Brit Marling, does look very powerful and it's one of these films I really enjoy, a big scale story that focuses on the individuals and what happens to them because of it.
Here's a new blurb for Another Earth:
Another Earth, Mike Cahill's sci-fi drama about the discovery of a duplicate Earth behind our sun, and the way it effects a young scientist and a widowed composer.
Here's the one currently on IMDB:
On the night of the discovery of a duplicate planet in the solar system, an ambitious young student and an accomplished composer cross paths in a tragic accident.
Now to complete the story, here's the blurb that I first ran about the film with the first trailer I found:
In Another Earth, Rhoda Williams (Brit Marling), a bright young woman accepted into MIT's astrophysics program, aspires to explore the cosmos. A brilliant composer, John Burroughs (William Mapother), has just reached the pinnacle of his profession and is about to have a second child. On the eve of the discovery of a duplicate Earth, tragedy strikes and the lives of these strangers become irrevocably intertwined
Now I know that's a lot of blurbs, but for me that really does tell the story well, each of the first two blurbs on their own don't really cut it.
The new trailer is similar to the first one, although it tells a little less of the story, which is just fine with me. This one has just enough to hook you in and I certainly am.
