Domnhall Gleeson headlines the story of A A Milne. Here's the trailer for Goodbye Christopher Robin...
Well, this looks like it could be really lovely. Goodbye Christopher Robin is an upcoming film that tells the story between the author A A Milne – creator, of course, of the Winnie The Pooh stories and his son. His son was called Christopher Robin, and it was Christopher’s toys that inspired the Winnie The Pooh stories in the first place.
Domnhall Gleeson takes on the role of Milne in the film, and he’s joined in the cast by Margot Robbie and Kelly Macdonald. Furthermore, the first trailer for the movie has arrived, along with an official synopsis. So let’s get on with that.
Here’s the trailer…
And here’s the synopsis…

Chris here, just imagining a Beatles / Winnie the Pooh crossover. You say goodbye, because I say hello to the first Goodbye Christopher Robin trailer. (Which Beatle matches which Pooh character? Ringo is such a Tigger.)
The film is chasing after our literary nostalgic tears in the vein of Finding Neverland, following A.A. Milne (played by the ever dashing Domnhall Gleeson) as his son inspires him to create the adventures of Winnie the Pooh during Wwi »

Disney is currently working on a live-action Winnie The Pooh movie called Christopher Robin that will focus on Pooh’s human friend growing up and losing touch with his imagination, but director Simon Curtis’ similarly titled film Goodbye Christopher Robin is far more straightforward. As seen in this trailer, Curtis’ movie is a biopic about Winnie The Pooh creator A.A. Milne, and what it lacks in magical nonsense about a man reconnecting with his imaginary bear buddy, it makes up for in pure, untainted brightness and optimism. The way this trailer tells it, Domhnall Gleeson’s Milne singlehandedly brought the world back from the brink of darkness after the first World War, and it was all because of his son’s collection of stuffed animal toys.

Today's movie news is jam-packed with new trailers with a couple posters sprinkled in!
Kathryn Bigelow’s new film Detroit dropped a new trailer today and we’re already on the edge of our seats! She’s teaming up with screenwriter Mark Boal again (this duo’s brought you other acclaimed movies like The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty). It’s early in the year to start making Oscar predictions but this one is almost guaranteed to get some award season love. The film stars the likes of John Krasinski, John Boyega, Will Poulter, and Anthoney Mackie. It follows a police raid in Detroit in 1967 which results in one of the largest citizen uprisings in the United States' history. Check »

You can hardly expect you won’t have a good time with anything connected to Winnie the Pooh, but Goodbye Christopher Robin is a multi-faceted adventure that details the creation of the beloved stories, and the family and times that are behind that creative endeavor. The film has released a trailer, and the narration paints a picture of hope and happiness in a world gone made, but it apparently isn’t as simple as even that.
First off, the title is depressing. I mean, what kind of story starts with “Goodbye?”
More to the point, the official synopsis gives us – “Christopher Robin and his family are swept up in the international success of the books; the enchanting tales bringing hope and comfort to England after the First World War. But with the eyes of the world on Christopher Robin, what will the cost be to the family?”

Winnie the Pooh is a cherished literary character who exudes warmth, love, kindness and absurd amounts of cuddliness. So why shouldn’t a movie about the adorable bear's creation also possess the same fine qualities? The first trailer for Goodbye Christopher Robin is oozing with sweet tenderness, with Domhnall Gleeson playing Pooh author A. A. Mine and Margot Robbie as his wife Daphne de... Read More »

In January 2017, fans of A.A. Milne celebrated the anniversary of his birthday which has become Winnie the Pooh Day. Biography.com posted a list about the British author earlier this year which you can see here.
In 2006, Winnie the Pooh received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, marking the 80th birthday of Milne’s creation.
Milne is most famous for his two Pooh books about a boy named Christopher Robin after his son, Christopher Robin Milne, and various characters inspired by his son’s stuffed animals, most notably the bear named Winnie-the-Pooh. Christopher Robin Milne’s stuffed bear, originally named “Edward”, was renamed “Winnie-the-Pooh” after a Canadian black bear named Winnie (after Winnipeg), which was used as a military mascot in World War I, and left to London Zoo during the war. “The pooh” comes from a swan called “Pooh”. E. H. Shepard illustrated the original Pooh books, »

Fox Searchlight has released the first trailer for “Goodbye Christopher Robin,” which chronicles A. A. Milne’s creation of the Winnie the Pooh stories. “Once upon a time there was a great war that brought so much sadness to so many people,” says the voiceover in the trailer. “Hardly anyone could remember what happiness was like. But something happened that changed all that. It helped us believe in the good things. The fun things. And a world of imagination. And then, just like a tap you turned on, happiness came pouring out.” The trailer opens with the aforementioned war then shifts in. »

"Hardly anyone could remember what happiness was like. But something happened that changed all that." Fox Searchlight has unveiled the first trailer for the film Goodbye Christopher Robin, telling the true story of beloved children's author A. A. Milne, as played by Domhnall Gleeson in the film. Set in England in the early 1900s, the story is all about how Milne came up with Winnie the Pooh, inspired by his son Christopher Robin and his stuffed animals. Along with Gleeson, the cast includes Margot Robbie as Daphne Milne, Will Tilston as C.R., plus Kelly Macdonald, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Stephen Campbell Moore. This seems to be a lovely relief from the heaviness of the world, focusing on the good things and the happy things that we can appreciate. There's some cool shots in this, hopefully it's a fine film.

We’ve seen many variations of the animated Winnie the Pooh, but now he’s coming to life in a new feature — or more precisely, how he came to life is captured. Goodbye Christopher Robin follows author A.A. Milne (Domhnall Gleeson) and his wife Daphne (Margot Robbie) as they raise their son Christopher Robin (Will Tilston). Directed by Simon Curtis (My Week With Marilyn, Woman in Gold), the first trailer has landed today ahead of a fall release.
Scripted by Frank Cottrell Boyce and Simon Vaughn, the film explores the Milne family as they encounter fame following World War I and specifically the father-son relationship at the center. Judging from the first preview, it’s as saccharine as you’d expect from this director, but hopefully the emotions are earned. Check out the trailer and poster below for the film also starring Kelly Macdonald, Stephen Campbell Moore, Alex Lawther, Richard McCabe, »

Well if this doesn’t cause your heartstrings to swell with manipulated warmth then you might as well be a stuffed toy. The first trailer for Simon Curtis’ Finding Neverland-esque biopic of the life of Winnie the Pooh creator A. A. Milne is washed in sunlight and smiles, cherubic children and the wonders of rebuilding hope in the darkest time.
Focusing on the relationship of Domhnall Gleeson as Milne with his young son, the titular Christopher Robin (as played by Will Tilston and Alex Lawther), the trailer sets its scene on the unsteady ground of post-war Britain. Making much of the enormous success of Milne’s stories the trailer hints at trouble at home, as well as the erosive effect of a world turned upside-down with war.
But never fear – there are Pooh-sticks galore, a stuffed Piglet and all the gang are here. Gleeson looks every »

For years, Disney‘s “Winnie the Pooh” has been allowing audiences to escape to the Hundred Acres Woods, a place of imagination and friendship with Christopher Robin, Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, and many, many more. What many people may not have realized, though, is that Christopher Robin was himself based on a real person: the young child of author A. A. Milne, who used his son’s imagination as the inspiration for the books about a boy and his magical bear.
