‘Room’ Trailer: Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay’s Daring Escape
Wednesday, September 9th, 2015 at 4:00 pm
A24 has released the first official trailer for Lenny Abrahamson‘s Room, starring Brie Larson as a mother who has been held captive with her 5-year-old son Jack (Jacob Tremblay). After years of being trapped in the 10’x10′ room Jack knew as the world, Ma devises a dangerous escape plan that will help free Jack. We already saw a teaser trailer that set the tone for the film earlier this summer.
There is no need to tell you how extraordinary of an actor Larson is. Having starred in 21 Jump Street, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, and my personal favorite (and seriously underwatched) Short Term 12, Larson’s latest role in Room is already getting some major high praise, and hopefully will make up for not getting some awards attention that Short Term 12 so rightfully deserved. Check out the latest trailer below.
Now Room‘s newest trailer goes deeper into the plot, revealing that Ma and Jack’s survival in the room, and their escape was only one obstacle. Now they have to adjust their life outside of it. However, there will be a few joys as Jack gets to experience cars, dogs, and see his grandparents for the first time. Don’t worry about the whole escaping the room being a huge spoiler, we already saw them do it in the teaser.
The film is based on the best-selling novel written by Emma Donoghue. It also stars Joan Allen and William H. Macy.
ROOM tells the extraordinary story of Jack (Jacob Tremblay in a breakout performance), a spirited 5 year-old who is looked after by his loving and devoted Ma (Brie Larson, SHORT TERM 12, TRAINWRECK). Like any good mother, Ma dedicates herself to keeping Jack happy and safe, nurturing him with warmth and love and doing typical things like playing games and telling stories. Their life, however, is anything but typical””they are trapped””confined to a windowless, 10-by-10-foot space, which Ma has euphemistically named “Room.” Ma has created a whole universe for Jack within Room, and she will stop at nothing to ensure that, even in this treacherous environment, Jack is able to live a complete and fulfilling life. But as Jack’s curiosity about their situation grows, and Ma’s resilience reaches its breaking point, they enact a risky plan to escape, ultimately bringing them face-to-face with what may turn out to be the scariest thing yet: the real world. ROOM also stars three-time Academy Award® nominee Joan Allen and Academy Award® nominee William H. Macy.
At once a taut narrative of captivity and freedom, an imaginative trip into the wonders of childhood, and a profound portrait of a family’s bonds and fortitude, ROOM is a beautifully transcendent experience based on the award-winning global bestseller by Emma Donoghue. Director Lenny Abrahamson (FRANK) remains faithful to the novel while bringing Jack, Ma and their entirely singular world to heart-pounding and intensely cinematic life. ROOM demonstrates the triumphant power of familial love even in the darkest of circumstances, and is sure to take its place among the most emotionally affecting films to ever explore the bond between parents and children.
A24 will open The Room in New York and Los Angeles on October 16th. It opens nationwide November 6th.
