A first trailer has arrived for John Curran's gorgeously mounted desert adventure "Tracks," starring Mia Wasikowska as intrepid Robyn Davidson, who at age 26 in 1977 undertook a dangerous 1700-mile trek across the unforgiving Australian Outback with four camels and a dog. The film is based on Davidson's memoir of the same title; it co-stars Adam Driver as National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan, who met up with Davidson at various points on her excursion. Curran explored another exotic location in 2006's excellent "Painted Veil," set in rural China. "Tracks" debuted on the fall festival circuit earlier this season to positive reviews, and was promptly scooped up by the Weinstein Company. No word yet on a release date, but Australian Wasikowska could be a long shot for a Best Actress awards campaign if Harvey Weinstein decides to chase that goal. Watch a first-look clip here. The lovely cinematography on display is by Mandy Walker ("Australia, »

Mia Wasikowska is a fantastic young actress that has a long successful acting career ahead of her. She's been in films such as Jane Eyre, Stoker, Alice in Wonderland, Lawless, and several more. She was amazing in all of those, and now she's basically going to carry a whole film on her shoulders with Tracks, which is based on an inspiring true story. This looks like a beautifully shot film, and I'll be checking it out when it is released.
Tracks is based on the inspirational and iconic true story of Robyn Davidson. Robyn's phenomenal solo trek from Alice Springs to Uluru and on to the Indian Ocean saw her traverse 2700km of spectacular yet unforgiving Australian desert accompanied only »

Ever wanted to see Mia Wasikowska walk nearly 2,000 miles? Well now you can thanks to her latest drama, Tracks. Admittedly there seems to be more than just walking to this true story of a young woman overcoming adversity. It sees Wasikowska decide, rather out of the blue judging by the trailer, that she will walk 2,000 miles from central Australia to the Indian Ocean. Along the way she meets photographer Rick Smolan (Adam Driver), and has some camels for company.
It’s not that I’m pessimistic about the film, but it certainly has trouble selling itself in the trailer. The use of the overused musical track and slow motion spinning/turning around to show the appreciation of nature’s beauty don’t exactly scream “Watch Me!” But with the film being such a personal journey, the core will rely on the emotional context of events. Fingers crossed the journey will »

Some people go on vacation to find themselves. They start writing their novel, or get a makeover or eat/pray/love their way to self acceptance. But in 1977, Robyn Davidson took things in a slightly bigger direction when she gathered up some camels and trekked across the Australian outback from Alice Springs to the west coast — you know, just because. Davidson’s story is chronicled in Tracks, the adaptation of her revered “National Geographic” article turned memoir that stars Mia Wasikowska as the fearless adventurer and Adam Driver as the NatGeo photographer she picks up along the way to document the journey. Though Davidson’s trek begins as the grandest declaration of “ugh everyone just leave me alone please,” the inclusion of the photographer and the many lively human and non-human companions she meets during those 2000 treacherous miles out on the road allow her to open up to a new mindset about what she wants out of »

Mia Wasikowska and Adam Driver are two of the most fascinating young actors working right now, and both have HBO to credit for their success. Wasikowska burst into the spotlight with Alice in Wonderland but had already gotten rave reviews for her striking turn on In Treatment, as suicidal gymnast Sophie. Meanwhile, Driver is the most electric part of the young adult ensemble on HBO’s Girls. His role as the ill-mannered but intelligent Adam Sackler is a constant, awkward delight. Wasikowska and Driver will be seen on the big screen in Tracks and the trailer for John Curran’s autobiographical adventure drama is now online.
Tracks tells the true story of Robyn Davidson, a woman who decided to walk through 1,700 miles worth of Australian desert to reach the Indian ocean, accompanied by camels and a dog. Wasikowska plays Davidson and Driver is Rick Smolan, a National Geographic photographer who »

Based on the acclaimed memoir from Robyn Davidson, See Saw Films. Tracks is a return to the emotional drama for director John Curran (We Don.t Live Here Anymore), whose 2010 thriller Stone just wasn.t up to snuff with the rest of his work. Here.s hoping he didn.t have to take a 2,000 mile journey to figure that out. The trailer, via EW, is quite possibly the most sunshiny thing I.ve ever seen indoors. The film chronicles the 1,700-mile trip through the Australian wilderness that Davidson took with her dog and camels back in 1977. And Mia Wasikowska is absolutely transformed for the role in a complete 180 from her dark look in this year.s Stoker. Not only is she blond, which looks rather strange, but she.s almost always completely sunburnt and covered in dirt. It.s obviously more of a passion project than a vanity project. Davidson »
In 1977, a 27-year old woman by the name of Robyn Davidson set off on a trek across the Australian desert from Alice Springs to the west coast with nothing more than four camels and her dog for company. Robyn didn't do it because she was trying to prove anything or to make some bold statement. She did it because she could and wanted to and her very personal journey made her a role model for other women who could relate to Davidson's push for independence and self discovery by her own terms rather than those dictated by society.
Her National Geographic article was so well received that Davidson later published "Tracks," a book which outlined her preparation for and the subsequent 1,700 mile long trek. Her novel is also the basis of John Curran's film which stars Mia Wasikowska as Davidso [Continued ...] »
Although The Weinstein Company has not set a domestic release date yet, the first international trailer has arrived for Tracks. Mia Wasikowska stars in this true story adaptation as Robyn Davidson, who made the 1,700-mile journey across the West Australian desert with four camels and a faithful dog. Adam Driver and Emma Booth co-star in director John Curran's drama, which debuts in U.K. theaters April 25, 2014.
"When people ask me why I'm doing it, my usual answer is, 'Why not?'"
That's the explanation that Robyn Davidson (Mia Wasikowska) gives in this new trailer for "Tracks" for deciding to trek 2,000 miles from the middle of the Australian Outback to the Indian Ocean. The film is based on a true story, making Davidson's decision all the more remarkable, and director John Curran ("We Don't Live Here Anymore," "The Painted Veil") spares no detail in bringing her inspiring journey to life against the gorgeous landscape.
"You want to die out there or something?" an incredulous Driver asks.
But of course, Davidson's journey is about more than the destination, and along with snakes and sunburns, she finds herself. The movie received raves »

An epic journey of wilderness travel and self-imposed isolation is at the heart of John Curran's ("The Painted Veil," "We Don't Live Here Anymore") new film, "Tracks." Mia Wasikowska ("Stoker," "Alice in Wonderland") stars in the true story of Robyn Davidson who in 1975 traveled 2700km across the Australian desert accompanied only by her dog and four camels. Read More: Mia Wasikowska On Having Three Films at Tiff and Why She Stuck to Indies Following 'Alice in Wonderland' The trailer highlights Australia's epic landscapes that almost seem overwhelming. National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan (Adam Driver) intermediately breaks Davidson's solitude, forming an unlikely friendship.

Can't a girl just get some alone time? Mia Wasikowska stars in Tracks, the true story of Robyn Davidson, a girl who sets out to walk 2,000 miles through the Australian desert because - get this - why not? Along the way, she encounters various creatures and people, including (but not limited to) snakes and a National Geographic photographer (Girls' Adam Driver). Think Into the Wild, but with Wasikowska instead of Emile Hirsch and the outback instead of the Alaskan wilderness. This trailer is gorgeous. The landscape is beautiful and perfectly complemented by M83's "Outro." Could there be a better song for such a haunting story? Wasikowska seems like the ideal young actress to pull off this role, and hey, how could you not want to see Driver in anything and everything? The movie doesn't yet have an official release date, but you can (and should) watch the trailer below the jump. »

The first trailer for the drama Tracks has gone online. John Curran's film is based on the true story of Robyn Davidson (played by Mia Wasikowska), who in 1975 decided to walk from Alice Springs in Central Australia all the way to the Indian Ocean, a distance of approximately 1,700 miles. I caught the film at Toronto and found it to be a disappointing slog, but other critics I spoke to were enthusiastic about the picture. If I hadn't seen the movie, this trailer would lead me to believe Tracks is exciting and emotional. This trailer does not have her training camels for two years. Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Adam Driver as a National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan, who periodically checked in with Davidson because the publication was sponsoring her trip. The Weinstein Company has distribution rights for Tracks, but there's currently no release date. »

He does not actually ride one in this trailer, but you have to figure that Adam Driver will ride a camel at some point during Tracks. So: Adam Driver riding a camel! And Adam Driver in nerdy glasses! Also, and more important, really: Mia Wasikowska bonding with all sorts of terrifying animals in her journey across the Australian outback. If you hate snakes, you are gonna want to skip the last twenty seconds of this. »

It takes a certain kind of person to gather up a handful of camels, head out into the middle of the Australian outback, miles from civilization, and start walking, but that's just what Robyn Davidson did and her story is chronicled in "Tracks," the latest from director John Curran (“We Don’t Live Here Anymore,” “The Painted Veil”). And with Mia Wasikowska in the lead role, perhaps it shouldn't surprise you that this is one will be worth watching. Hitting the festival circuit this fall, premiering in Venice, our man on the Lido called it a "beautiful experience," and it's hard to argue with that verdict. Curran makes the most of this gorgeous landscape he's given to shoot on and Wasikowska gives a terrific turn as a woman haunted by her past, who relates better to animals than people. And helping to keep the mood light is Adam Driver, a »

"I'm so alone." "We all are." Transmission Films has debuted the first full trailer for John Curran's Tracks, an Australian indie film telling the real life story of 27-year-old naturalist and adventurer Robyn Davidson, played by Mia Wasikowska. In 1977, Davidson hiked alone (along with four camels and her dog) across almost 1700 miles of desert through the Australian Outback. The film premiered at the Telluride, Toronto and Venice Film Festivals and earned quite a bit of healthy praise. I saw it in Toronto and fell in love with, not only the score but the incredible performance from Wasikowska (read my review). Adam Driver shows up in this too, and they use M83's "Outro" in the trailer. This film comes highly recommended. Take a look! Watch the first official trailer for John Curran's Tracks, uploaded to YouTube (via The Film Stage): Starring Mia Wasikowska (Jane Eyre, Stoker) and Adam Driver ("Girls", Frances Ha, »

Mia Wasikowska has taken part in Disney blockbusters, twisted tales from Park Chan-wook and Jim Jarmusch, and much more, but she recently saw her greatest journey yet: a trek across the Australian desert. Coming from The Painted Veil director John Curran, the project premiered on the fall festival circuit and follows the actress as Robyn Davidson, who traveled more than 1,678 [...] »

‘Catching Fire’ box office: To surpass Iron Man 3 in North America? (photo: Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’) Thanksgiving was celebrated this past week in the United States. Although the American economy remains in a seemingly never-ending rut, Lionsgate has much to be thankful for, financially speaking: on the weekend of November 29-December 1, 2013, Francis Lawrence’s $110-130 million-budgeted The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth, added another $74.5 million from 4,163 North American locations according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. Even if Lionsgate’s estimates are (once again) off by a couple of percentage points, that’s a remarkable hold for a sequel. In fact, Catching Fire was down only 53% compared to its first weekend, which included $25+ million from Thursday night and Friday midnight screenings. And let’s not forget that the Hunger Games sequel blew off »
