Tuesday’s Top Trailer: Nobody Walks

Welcome to a weekly feature here at Movies with Abe, Tuesday's Top Trailer. One of my favorite parts about going to see movies is the series of trailers that airs beforehand and, more often than not, the trailer is far better than the actual film. Each week, I'll be sharing a trailer I've recently seen. Please chime in with comments on what you think of the trailer and how you think the movie is going to be.

Nobody Walks – Opening October 12, 2012

The trailer for this drama has a whole lot going for it. The co-writing credit given to Lena Dunham is an enormous attractor, especially since this is a foray into something considerably darker than the fascinating “Girls.” John Krasinski gets another serious role as well, something that he’s proven himself capable of in projects such as “Brief Interviews with Hideous Men,” and he’s surrounded by an exceptional cast, including Rosemarie DeWitt (“Your Sister’s Sister”), Olivia Thirlby (“Juno”), Justin Kirk (“Weeds”), India Ennenga (“Treme”), Jane Levy (“Suburgatory”), and Dylan McDermott. DeWitt plays scorned well, Kirk seductive, and Thirlby alluring in an inappropriate way, so they’re all sure to be excellent. The story appears to be extremely complex, and there’s a whole lot of infidelity being alluded to in the previews, some of which provokes angry and violent reactions. The end of the trailer in particular gets quite serious, and I’m very intrigued to see how these actors, whose material hasn’t been nearly as dramatic in the past, handle it. This Sundance Jury Prize winner is being released in September on iTunes being its theatrical premiere in October.
