Davis makes his feature directorial debut, having previously co-directed mini-series Top Of The Lake with Jane Campion.

Coming Distractions: Dev Patel unearths his past in the Lion trailer

26 August 2016 8:29 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

We’re coming up on Serious Movie Season, and thus here we have another trailer for a based-on-a-true-story film aiming to tug at your heartstrings. In Lion, Dev Patel stars as Saroo Brierley, a man adopted at a young age by an Australian couple. Saroo, who was separated from his brother in a train station during his youth, goes searching for his birth family with the help of Google Earth. Hey, look! A movie involving the Internet, which doesn’t glorify the contributions of one white man or spell doom and gloom for society.

Anyway, the first look at the project from director Garth Davis introduces us to an adult Saroo, beginning to remember details of his past life. “I had another family, a mother, a brother,” he says. “I can still see their faces.” Davis relies on flashbacks to dramatize Saroo’s past, while Nicole Kidman plays his adopted »

‘Lion’ Trailer: Dev Patel Searches For His Long Lost Family

26 August 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Producer Harvey Weinstein sees awards potential in Lion, one of the two contenders he’s betting on this fall. The other awards hopeful film coming from TWC, in Harvey Weinstein’s eyes, is The Founder, based on the life of Ray Kroc. While that biopic is about a man driven by greed, Lion is a more kind-hearted and inspiring tale, about […]

Oscar Hopeful Trailers Galore

26 August 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Chris here. As the upcoming fall festival and Oscar season looms, get ready for a steady stream of incoming footage for this year's hopefuls to start cropping up in the coming weeks. Today we have some peeks at a few weepies ready to work your tear ducts on their path to awards: Manchester By The Sea, A United Kingdom, and Lion. Take a look at the trailers (and a few quick thoughts) below:

Manchester By The Sea

Kenneth Lonergan is definitely returning to You Can Count On Me territory after the intellectual meanderings of Margaret, with already raved about results.

• Isn't Kyle Chandler in this? Obviously new star Lucas Hedges will be the supporting Oscar play here, but when will the always strong Chandler finally get his due?

• I've read Michelle Williams performance compared to Beatrice Straight in Network several times. Looks like we'll have a brief spellbinder of a performance. »

Dev Patel Searches for Home in First Trailer for ‘Lion’

25 August 2016 12:57 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Dev Patel is setting off on a heart-tugging journey to India to find his real parents in the first trailer for The Weinstein Company’s “Lion,” based on Saroo Brierley’s memoir “A Long Way Home.”

“I had another family — a mother, a brother,” he tells his mother, played by Nicole Kidman. “Every day my real brother screams my name.

The movie tells the story of 5-year-old Indian child who gets hopelessly lost after falling asleep on a parked train and ending up 1,000 miles from his village. He’s adopted by an Australian couple (Kidman and David Wenham), then begins a painstaking search for his lost village and family, utilizing Google Earth, more than two decades later.

Sunny Pawar plays the 5-year-old version of Brierley with several scenes in the trailer showing the nightmarish sequence of getting lost on the train. Rooney Mara also stars.

Lion Trailer Hits All The Melodramatic Notes

25 August 2016 12:45 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We tend to use the word “melodrama” as a pejorative, but good melodrama – melodrama that hits all the right notes of sentimentality and realism – can be wonderfully beautiful and moving. The Weinstein Company must be hoping for that with their new film Lion, a film practically made to be Oscar bait.

Lion stars Dev Patel as Saroo, a young man who was separated from his family as a child and wound up traveling thousands of miles across India by train. He learns to survive alone until he’s finally adopted by an Australian couple – and now, many years later, he wants to find his birth family. With the help of some friends and Google Earth, Saroo sets out to discover his home and return to the family who lost him.

The trailer for Lion makes a good case for the film, combining lovely imagery with Saroo’s compelling voiceover, as »

Dev Patel’s ‘Lion’ Joins 2016 Oscar Race

25 August 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

The Dev Patel–starring biopic “Lion” has made its way onto many an awards season shortlist. Given its high-profile roster of talent on screen and off, it’s not surprising; co-starring Nicole Kidman and Rooney Mara, the film is written by Luke Davies (“Candy”) and helmed by Garth Davis (“Top of the Lake”) in his feature film debut. With the release of the movie’s stirring trailer today, it’s even clearer that Academy voters and awards season pundits will be taking notice. “Lion” traces the real-life story of Saroo Brierley, who was separated from his family in India at the age of five and later adopted by an Australian couple. Based on Brierley’s memoir “A Long Way Home,” the film follows Brierley as he attempts to locate his birth parents—through the magic of Google Earth. Could Patel have a shot at an Oscar nomination for best leading actor? »

‘Lion’ Trailer: Inspirational True Story Is The Weinstein Company’s Major Oscar Hopeful

25 August 2016 7:23 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It hasn’t been the easiest road for The Weinstein Company as of late (the lackluster box office for Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight” last December was just the starting point of a year’s worth of executive departures and release date changes for its 2016 slate), but when Harvey Weinstein labels a film his Oscar power player, attention must be paid. Such is the case this year with Garth Davis’ “Lion,” starring Dev Patel, Rooney Mara and Nicole Kidman. “I think ‘Lion’ will set a new streak for us,” Weinstein told The Hollywood Reporter earlier this summer. “‘Lion’ could get nominated for eight or nine Academy Awards…Nicole [Kidman] gets one or supporting actress because she’s amazing in ‘Lion.'” It looks like the pressure is on.

Rooney Mara Helps Dev Patel Remember His Past in First Trailer For ‘Lion’

25 August 2016 7:15 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Coming off an Emmy for directing Top of the Lake, Garth Davis has helmed a new feature titled Lion. Set for a premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival before a release this fall, the drama starring Dev Patel, Rooney Mara and Nicole Kidman follows the true story of a man who takes a journey to his home in India after being adopted and raised in Australia for 25 years.

“Google Earth is a far more advanced application now and simpler to navigate. When Saroo was searching, it was cloudy, square pixels and took ages to zoom in to look closely,” Patel tells USA Today, who debuted the trailer. “This became his completely-consuming obsession, finding this needle in a haystack. This man’s determination and perseverance was incredible.”

Check out the trailer below for The Weinstein Company drama that will arrive in November.
