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 down-on-his-luck electronics salesman -- decides to drive his dad to Lincoln, Nebraska while stopping at their relatives' home along the way.
