A month before its U.S. bow at the New York Film Festival, Paramount has unveiled the first trailer for Alexander Payne’s acclaimed black-and-white charmer “Nebraska,” starring Oscar hopeful Bruce Dern, who picked up acting honors after its Cannes world premiere.
“Saturday Night Live” alum Will Forte and Dern star as a father and son on an aimless
mission to claim a million-dollar sweepstakes prize that
doesn’t exist. Having received a scam letter in the mail, Woody (Dern)
continually wanders away from his
home in Montana to claim his wealth, upsetting his wife Kate (June
Squibb). Growing weary of picking
up his father on random street corners, David (Forte) — a
electronics salesman — decides to drive his dad to Lincoln, Nebraska
while stopping at their relatives’ home along the way.
The film opens in limited release November 15th. Watch the trailer below.
