Trailer Watch: Never Let Me Go

Thompson on Hollywood

One award-season play for Fox Searchlight this year is Mark Romanek’s Never Let Me Go, set for October 1 release. (The trailer is below.) Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightley and Andrew Garfield lead the cast of the film adapted by Alex Garland from the novel by Kazuo Ishiguro (The Remains of the Day). Romanek, who last directed One Hour Photo eight years ago, has much to prove here, following two big-budget studio films that imploded. He left Universal’s The Wolf Man over budget issues–a penny-wise, pound-foolish call that the studio regrets in retrospect. And Tom Hanks-starrer Cold Case also fell apart.

The trailer looks excellent. Hopefully the movie will be just as good. One quibble, though. Why does the trailer insist on giving away the Big Secret that the novel hides for quite a few chapters?
