Check Out the International Trailer for Tommy Lee Jones’ ‘The Homesman’

tommyleejones_homesmanOne of the wildcards for this coming year could be Tommy Lee Jones‘ sophomore feature The Homesman, in which he stars alongside Hilary Swank, Grace Gummer, Meryl Streep, John Lithgow, James Spader, Hailee Steinfeld and Miranda Otto.  Robert Hamer is currently reading the book and says this could be a fantastic vehicle for Hilary Swank, who he says is “tailor-made” for the role.

Today we have an international trailer which has a very There Will Be Blood vibe to it in the opening seconds but quickly opens itself up to what looks like a soft but emotional interpretation.  Tommy Lee Jones made his directorial debut with The Three Burials of Melquaides Estrada, for which he scored nominations from the Independent Spirit Awards and won Best Actor at Cannes.  This could be another actor-turned-director effort that scores big if embraced by critics and audiences.

Check out the trailer down below:
