The Lovely Bones trailer

posted by Jason Kottke   Aug 05, 2009

The trailer for The Lovely Bones, directed by Peter Jackson and based on the 2002 book by Alice Sebold.

It is the story of a teenage girl who, after being brutally raped and murdered, watches from heaven as her family and friends go on with their lives, while she herself comes to terms with her own death.

Jackson personally purchased the film rights to the book and from the trailer, it seems like this is a return to his Heavenly Creatures days, with a bit of the LOTR fantasy and special effects sprinkled in. Looking forward to this one.
