See Peter Jackson’s The Lovely Bones Trailer

Paramount Pictures have unveiled the full trailer for Peter Jackson’s theatrical adaptation of The Lovely Bones.

The beautiful surreal and otherworldly imagery strewn throughout the trailer is reminiscent of the dazzling visuals in What Dreams May Come. Like that film, The Lovely Bones is hard to classify with touches of drama, mystery, suspense and the supernatural. Which is perhaps why the trailer gives away more of the story than you might expect.

Based on the critically acclaimed best-selling novel by Alice Sebold, and directed by Oscar winner Peter Jackson from a screenplay by Jackson & Fran Walsh & Philippa Boyens, The Lovely Bones centers on a young girl who has been murdered and watches over her family – and her killer – from heaven. She must weigh her desire for vengeance against her desire for her family to heal. Oscar nominee Mark Wahlberg and Oscar winners Rachel Weisz and Susan Sarandon star along with Stanley Tucci, Michael Imperioli and Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan.
