Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close Trailer
Sometimes judging sentiment can be a hard thing. If you go too far the end product can feel manipulative but get it just right and your're onto a winner.

Well the trailer for Extremely Loud and Incredibly loss currently sits in the middle of the above. We have a dead father, a broken hearted mother and 9/11 all pivoted on one small boy. I'm already welling up.

The synopsis reads "Based on the acclaimed novel of the same name, “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close” tells the story of one young boy’s journey from heartbreaking loss to the healing power of self-discovery, set against the backdrop of the tragicevents of September 11. Eleven-year-old Oskar Schell is an exceptional child: amateur inventor, Francophile, pacifist. And after finding a mysterious key that belonged to his father, who died in the World Trade Center on 9/11, he embarks on an exceptional journey–an urgent, secret search through the five boroughs of New York. As Oskar roams the city, he encounters a motley assortment of humanity, who are all survivors in their own ways. Ultimately, Oskar’s journey ends where it began, but with the solace of that most human experience: love"

Tom Hanks is a draw but an unknown in the lead makes it feel like a gamble. I do like the look of the trailer though and it has won my over.

What do you think though?
