I hate to break it to you

So a film adaptation of my favorite novel is coming in October. It’s a very quiet, tense, loving and hopeful story about filial affection and duty. Moreover, I trust John Hillcoat’s ability to translate some of this to the screen. However, Harvey Weinstein apparently cares about stupid stuff like box office so he decided to cut this trailer that makes it look like this crazy action flick…starring Charlize Theron? Her character exists for a split second in the novel! Anyhow, I’m still really looking forward to seeing this – I’m going to pretend this trailer doesn’t exist.

    Admittedly, I’m nowhere near finishing the book, but yeah, that trailer doesn’t remind me of what I’ve been reading so far.

    I actually don’t think the preview looks bad – I have heard that they bulked up the wife’s role, but that makes sense for the adaptation because even though she’s “in” one scene, the memory of her pervades the book and they’ve got to put her importance across visually, so… I don’t mind.
