This new US trailer for the John Lennon film Nowhere Boy makes me want to go out and see this movie all over again. I had the opportunity to see this film up at The Sundance Film Festival and I absolutely loved it! this is definitely a nicely cut trailer that has the ability to sell you on seeing this movie. Unlike most biopics, where you see the entire life of an individual in two hours, Nowhere Boy focuses on just Lennon's youth. This film is the origin story of one of the greatest musicians to have ever lived. If your a fan of Lennon or the Beatles then your gonna love this movie, not just because it's about a music legend, but because the film itself was made extremely well, and the acting was fantastic.
The film stars Aaron Johnson who you most recently was in Kick-Ass, but Nowhere Boy really shows off his acting skills. The film also stars Thomas Sangster from Love Actually as Paul McCartney. I suggest you read Abe Froman's great review of the film right here.
Imagine… John Lennon's childhood. Liverpool 1955: a smart and troubled fifteen year—old is hungry for experience. In a family full of secrets, two incredible women clash over John: Mimi, the buttoned—up Aunt who raised him, and Julia, the prodigal mother. Yearning for a normal family, John escapes into the new and exciting world of rock n' roll where his fledgling genius finds a kindred spirit in the teenage Paul McCartney. Just as John begins his new life, tragedy strikes. But a resilient young man finds his voice — and an icon explodes into the world.
The film will hit theater on October 8th. Watch the new trailer below and let us know what ya think!
