Trailer for “The Way Back”
So, not so long after Peter Weir’s “The Way Back” kicked off its Oscar campaign, the UK Guardian released the trailer for this epic film. I think that after viewing this, despite the minimal amount of buzz accumulated in the U.S., I will have to update a few of my predictions. I already had it down for Supporting Actor and Cinematography. From the look of it, it may definitely be in line for Best Picture, Best Director and Editing. If it rides a good wave, perhaps Adapted Screenplay and Score, as well.
Surprisingly, the trailer doesn’t seem to showcase Ed Harris much at all. Perhaps, his part is not as meaty as one would hope. I guess we shall have to wait and see which direction the wind blows. Those who don’t know much about this film should definitely give this a look-see because it’s about to become a major player.
Sorry about the low quality, but the trailer is not very widely available, yet. Enjoy.
