The gala screening will mark “Trash’s” world premiere, a matter of import for Oscar pundits given Daldry’s Academy Award track record: “Billy Elliot,” “The Hours” and “The Reader” all snagged Best Director noms, “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close” made the Best Picture cut.
Written by Richard Curtis and Felipe Braga, “Trash” also reps Daldry’s first teen adventure thriller, and a pioneering Brazil, U.K. co-production which melds top echelon talent from Brazil and the U.K. while staking out Brazil as its home market.

That international trailer for Stephen Daldry’s Trash that dropped just about a month ago did offer up a solid preview of the film’s style and tone, but it’s much nicer when you can actually understand the dialogue. This latest promo is in English and has subtitles when it’s not, offering up a much clearer picture of the trouble that Rato (Gabriel Weinstein), Gardo (Eduardo Luis) and Raphael (Rickson Tevez) get themselves into after finding a bag in the dump. The details on why what’s inside the bag could change the nation aren’t particularly clear, but the trio is likable and engaging enough to inspire you to believe in and get behind what they’re fighting for.

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. »
