‘Nebraska’ Trailer from Director Alexander Payne

‘Nebraska’ Trailer from Director Alexander Payne

A father and son hit the road in search of fame and fortune in the first trailer for Nebraska. Bruce Dern stars as a father who forces his son (Will Forte) to go on a road trip to redeem a sweepstakes prize. We also have two posters for director Alexander Payne's dramatic comedy, co-starring June Squibb, Bob Odenkirk and Stacy Keach, arriving in theaters November 15.

After receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail, a cantankerous father (Bruce Dern) thinks he's struck it rich, and wrangles his son (Will Forte) into taking a road trip to claim the fortune. Shot in black and white across four states, Nebraska tells the stories of family life in the heartland of America.

Francis Ford Coppolla Brings ‘Twixt’ to Comic-Con 2011

Coppola has a unique new approach to the presentation of the film that will incorporate live music by acclaimed independent performance artist Dan Deacon. Deacon will attend Comic-Con with Coppola to help demonstrate the interactive experience of the film. The film incorporates both 2-D and 3-D elements.

Like his most recent films, Twixt follows three self-imposed mandates that Coppola requires in all of his new work: be his own original story and screenplay, have some personal element, and be self-financed. This particular story came to Coppola during a vivid dream he had while on a trip to Istanbul and is inspired by the writings of Edgar Allan Poe and Nathaniel Hawthorne. The film also brings Coppola back to his horror roots that began during his apprenticeship with Roger Corman.
