The Orchard have released the first trailer for their new film Louder than Bombs starring Jesse Eisenberg and Gabriel Byrne. The film is directed by writer-director Joaquim Trier and the trailer looks phenomenal. As a huge fan of Eisenberg, I personally get very excited for any film he is starring in. Two of my favorite films of last year he starred in (American Ultra, End of the Tour). Check out the trailer below and sound off in the comments with your thoughts.
Here's the official synopsis:
On the eve of an exhibition honoring noted war photographer Isabelle Reed (Isabelle Huppert), whose career was cut short in the wake of her untimely death, a father and two sons grapple with her domestic and professional legacy. Flashbacks of Isabelle’s conflated role of wife, mother and photojournalist intermingle with the present-day attempts of the Reeds to manage their grief amid combat of a different kind. Family patriarch Gene (Gabriel Byrne) discovers secrets about his late spouse while pursuing a new romance and struggling to connect with teenage son Conrad (Devin Druid), who hides in video games and introspection. Adult son Jonah (Jesse Eisenberg) takes leave from academic and married life to organize his mother’s archive, only to slip into reckless behavior. Past and present coalesce in sharp focus as the surviving Reeds come to terms with love and loss — locating in memories both painful and joyous the skills they need to soldier on…
Louder than Bombs hits select theaters on April 8th.
