Luther star Idris Elba and other entertainment industry representatives have called on British TV networks to dedicate more funding to programs for ethnic minorities.

Those names should do enough to give you an idea of where this one is heading – Inspiration City by way of Feelgood Highway and Uplift Heights. Martin Sheen and Rooney Mara are the names headlining but as you’ll see from the synopsis they are supporting the film’s real leads.

Few filmmakers have the Oscar pedigree of Stephen Daldry, whose past works include Billy Elliot, The Hours, The Reader and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (all of which have been nominated for Best Picture and/or Best Director). And so, though his upcoming film Trash doesn’t yet have a U.S. release date, it would be foolhardy to count it out of this year’s awards race.
In the film, scripted by Richard Curtis (About Time), “three poverty-stricken boys who discover something unusual, mysterious, and dangerous in a city dump.” The latest trailer for Trash, released through Universal Pictures Brazil, certainly maintains the thrilling, adventurous vibe that the film’s first preview gave off.
Though I can honestly claim to understand less than one-fifth of this international trailer, the Slumdog Millionaire-esque tone and impressive visuals paint Trash as another fascinating work from Daldry. And with Rooney Mara and »

I’m not sure where I come down on this Trash trailer, in part because I can only understand about 10% of it. Universal Pictures Brazil has released an international trailer for the film, directed by Stephen Daldry and written by British rom-com maestro Richard Curtis. In the film, “three poverty-stricken boys who discover something unusual, mysterious, and dangerous in a city dump.” The trailer has some slick visuals and a tone that reminds me of Slumdog Millionaire in the way that it places children in sort of a “safe” feeling criminal world. Martin Sheen and Rooney Mara star alongside Wagner Moura (Elysium) and Selton Mello. Rickson Tevez, Eduardo Luis, and Gabriel Weinstein play the three young boys at the center of the mystery. Hit the jump to check out the Trash trailer. The film is based on the novel by Andy Mulligan. There is no word yet on a U. »

So the trailer for Stephen Daldry’s “Trash” is out there. Set in Brazil, it chronicles impoverished street kids who find themselves involved in a political scandal when they make a discovery in a garbage dump. Soon the trio are running from the cops and trying to right a terrible wrong. It stars Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen as an Ngo worker and priest, respectively, and highlights a triad of young Brazilian boys played by Rickson Teves, Eduardo Luis and Gabriel Weinstein. And yes, these non-actor discoveries are actually the leads with the Americans providing the support (Brazilians Wagner Moura and Selton Mello also co-star). “The three lead actors in the film have never acted in a film before, they’ve never been to a cinema before,” Daldry said in a recent interview with Screen Daily. "The reason I made this film is because it’s about the underbelly, the difficult side of Rio, »

As we dive deeper into the fall awards season in 2014, more prestige films are suddenly being unveiled. This isn't a new trailer, but it is a trailer for a film that might end up with tons of acclaim by the end of this year. The next film from The Reader director Stephen Daldry is an adaptation titled Trash, about three young orphaned boys (played by newcomers Rickson Tevez, Eduardo Luis & Gabriel Weinstein) in Brazil who make a discovery in a garbage dump and find themselves running from the cops in a corrupt society. Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen, and Elysium's Wagner Moura also co-star in a film that looks like yet another intense drama on the crime-ridden streets of Brazil - a bit like City of God with a fresh twist. I'm in. Here's the Brazilian trailer for Stephen Daldry's new film Trash, found on YouTube (via SlashFilm): Trash, »

Stephen Daldry also talks about his new Netflix-backed series, his first foray into episodic TV.
Daldry, speaking at the Motovun Film Festival in Croatia this weekend, said: “The reason I made this film is because it’s about the underbelly, the difficult side of Rio, the underexposed side of Rio.”
Trash, which is slate for its world premiere at the Rio Film Festival in October, is now in the final stages of post production for Peapie Films, Working Title and Universal. It follows the story of impoverished kids who scavenge on a trash heap in Rio who get embroiled in a political scandal when they find an important item in the trash.

After breaking out in David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo with her Oscar-nominated turn as hacker Lisbeth Salander, Rooney Mara has steadily cemented her reputation as one of the most talented young actresses working today with strong performances in Ain’t Them No Bodies Saints, Side Effects and Her. And she doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon, with Stephen Daldry’s Trash, an untitled Terrence Malick project and erotic thriller Carol in the can. Now, we’ve learned that Mara has booked another high-profile gig leading the Jim Sheridan-directed The Secret Scripture.
Mara will replace Jessica Chastain in the drama, “about a 100-year-old woman named Roseanne who recounts her life in mental institutions in a secret memoir.” She will be playing the younger version of Roseanne, “who survives a traumatic childhood only to see her life utterly changed by a vindictive Catholic priest. »

We’ve heard very, very little about the latest film from Oscar favorite Stephen Daldry, who previously directed Billy Elliot, The Hours, The Reader and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (every film the director has been involved with has either been nominated for Best Director or Best Picture), but today brings the arrival of the first trailer for Trash, certainly a grittier and more unconventional venture from the helmer.
The movie, based on the book by Andy Mulligan, and scripted by About Time screenwriter Richard Curtis, tells the story of three street kids who survive by rummaging through a huge trash fill on the outskirts of a major city, searching through human waste and filth in hopes of finding food and other items necessary for their survival. One day, one of them finds a small leather bag with a wallet with some money and an ID card, a folded-up map, »
