After the ignominious reception of “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close”—and the similarly cool and tepid reaction to 2008’s “The Reader”—director Stephen Daldry has an uphill battle to gain back some goodwill with critics and audiences. Will the Brazil-set “Trash” get him back in your good graces? To help sway your decision, the film has released a new clip, along with a behind-the-scenes featurette.
Running over a minute long, the clip from the Richard Curtis-scripted film takes place just after three trash-picking boys—non-professional newcomers Rickson Tevez, Luis Eduardo, and Gabriel Weinstein—find an important wallet and realize what exactly they’ve gotten themselves into. The clip also features Rooney Mara, one of two American stars in the film—the other being Martin Sheen—playing missionaries.
A featurette has also been posted online, via Flicks And Bits, and it focuses on the logistics of shooting the film on location in Rio de Janeiro. “Trash” arrives in U.K. cinemas on January 30th, with no North American release date set yet. Watch the featurette and clip below.
