Tuesday’s Top Trailer: I’ll Follow You Down

Welcome back 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.

I’ll Follow You Down – Opening August 5, 2014

What doesn’t this movie have? Its main component, of course, is genre actors who we haven’t seen in a while. The last main role that Haley Joel Osment, an Oscar nominee at age 11 for “The Sixth Sense” who is now 26 (a month younger than me, in fact), had was way back in 2003 in “Secondhand Lions.” Now he’s grown up and he’s back in what appears to be a serious and challenging role as a young man haunted by the disappearance of his father, who he believes isn’t actually gone but just needs to be brought back in a science fiction-heavy way. Gillian Anderson, of “The X-Files” fame, was on NBC’s short-lived thriller “Crisis,” but that’s already been cancelled. I’ll always remember Rufus Sewell from the underrated 1998 sci-fi classic “Dark City,” and I think all I’ve seen in since is “The Illusionist” and the show “Eleventh Hour.” Victor Garber is always a dependable actor, and he appears to have a key supporting role. I’m a huge fan of time travel in almost all forms, and while wormholes get a bit more complicated, I think that this film, with its layered story dynamics, could be well worth it. It’s at least interesting to know what kind of project appealed to an actor like Osment who has been so absent from the film world since just after his big breakthrough at a young age.
