Hot Trailer: 'The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby'

Ned Benson‘s directorial debut The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby received a 10-minute standing ovation at its Cannes premiere in May. The version that played was Them, the film that Benson cut to tell a straight narrative story after two versions, Him and Her, debuted in Toronto last fall. James McAvoy and Jessica Chastain play a married couple whose relationship disintegrates when tragedy intervenes. The Weinstein Co is releasing the combined version Stateside on September 26. Six weeks later, it will put out the two earlier takes. All told, there is expected to be a big awards-season push by TWC, and in particular for the performances of Chastain and McAvoy. Viola Davis, Bill Hader and William Hurt also star. Here’s the trailer:

  1. Well it certainly looks interesting…, I suppose. It feels like an art house version of a Cameron Diaz rom-com.

    But could someone please tell me which of these films features James McAvoy with a convincing American accent?

  2. There is no such thing as a 10-minute standing ovation. To civilians, a two-minute standing ovation–which almost never, ever happens in real life–feels like 10 minutes. But you look a little silly using that figure as a journalist.
