The Loneliest Planet Trailer: Please, Somebody Spoil Me. I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NOW

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | July 6, 2012 | Comments ()


See, here I was watching the amiable enough trailer for The Loneliest Planet thinking, "Why isn't Gael Garcia Bernal a bigger star?" and "That redhead (Hani Furstenberg) is super cute." Then the trailer is all, like, "What if the one you love became a stranger in an instant?" and I'm all, like, "Hmmm. That's interesting. How does that happen?" And I'm watching along, and these critic quotes start rolling by, "A film you will never forget. It turns on the kind of small incident that could alter our lives forever," and I'm like, "WHAT INCIDENT?" TELL ME NOW. And then Karina Longworth is all, like, "Arresting. You don't know what's going to happen next ... and it seems like absolutely anything could," and I'm like "WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENS NEXT?"


The film opens on October 26th, and seriously, if someone actually tells me what happens and ruins this movie for me, I will use your IP address, track you down to your living room, and pull your intestines out your nose.

Happy Friday!

    Gael Garcia Bernal. Damn. Why isn't HE in the Pajiba Hall o' Fame?

  • Jezzer

    Dustin, they forget to pack toothbrushes and everyone dies of acute gingivitis at the end.

  • Someone email every major Hollywood studio and tell them to watch this trailer and take notes. That is how you cut a trailer to hook people. I'll be there.

  • Ludo_88

    lol I was wondering if they were changing the actress to a more disfigured one as time and wackiness progressed...

  • gp

    shirley, there's more to it than THAT.

    damn you, trailer-making assholes.

  • Rubble44

    Rosebud is a sled.

  • Steve Ward

    Am I the only one who thought there might be some weird sci-fi jungle wackiness going on here? As in, one of them LITERALLY becomes someone else, gets brainwashed or infected, starts acting entirely unlike themselves, etc?

    Wikipedia makes it sound much more simple, but still very much like a great character drama I'd love to see.

    If you go into this movie armed with only the blurbs pasted onto this trailer, there's a strong chance at disappointment as it isn't anywhere near as worthy as the build-up given. That's the trouble with trailers like this; more often than not, the viewer's attempt to theorize how the blanks are filled in are far more impressive than the actual reality.

    Went to Wiki. Spoiled it.

    “What if the one you love became a stranger in an instant?”

    Didn't The Vow already come out?

  • $27019454

    I'd lick that face, too.

  • Jezzer

    That picture caught her in the act of devouring his soul.

  • Sophie

    The wikipedia page for the film gives a little bit more information, if you really want to know.

  • An Atlantan

    I am intrigued.

  • akak



  • Matthijs

    Somebody removed the plot summary from Wikipedia, so all's safe now.

  • Hannah

    You can still read the review on The Holliwood Reporter

  • BWeaves

    I looked it up because I always read the last page first. It's an interesting premise. It's much more subtle a plot point than I would have thought, and yet huge.

  • An Atlantan

    Ha! I almost looked it up because I wanted to see if they filmed in New Zealand, but then.. I knew I wouldn't be able to resist looking at the plot.
