Above is a new poster for Peter Jackson's big-screen adaptation of The Lovely Bones. Based on the critically acclaimed best-selling novel by Alice Sebold, the screenplay was written by Jackson and his LOTR writing partners Fran Walsh & Philippa Boyens, and stars Saoirse Ronan(Atonement) as Susie Salmon, a young girl who has been murdered. While she is in heaven, she watches as her family(Mark Wahlberg, Rachel Weisz) attempting to cope with their devastating loss- and her killer(Stanley Tucci) who stealthily covers his tracks and prepares to claim his next victim. She must weigh her desire for vengeance against her desire for her family to heal. Susan Sarandon and Michael Imperioli also star.
Myspace premiered the one-sheet, and the first of the extended clips for the film below. The second clip premiered on MSN. The first clip is a nice look at a love struck Susie before she is murdered. The second is an intense clip that focuses on Stanley Tucci targeting his next victim using the similar tactics he used to murder Susie.
Even though neither feature the vast scope and stunning imagery of Jackson's take on heaven that we've seen in the Trailer, the shots are still visually rich! I can't wait for this to come out! The Lovely Bones begins its limited release on Dec. 11th and begins opening wide on Jan 15th.
