It Goes By So Fast: After 12 Years, the 'Boyhood' Trailer Is Finally Here

By Vivian Kane | Trailers | April 25, 2014 | Comments ()


In 2002, Richard Linklater (of Dazed and Confused and the Before/After/During Different Times of Day films) started filming a movie about a 6 year old boy and his family. The film was shot over 12 years, periodically gathering the actors together to continue the work. This movie could have easily played out as a filmmaking gimmick, but it was a serious favorite among the SXSW Pajiba contingent. The trailer’s main commodity seems to be that Linklater specialty: quiet, painful intimacy.

Boyhood has a release date of July 11.

    As a father of two boys(6 and 3), this gave me the feels.

  • hapl0

    So Jon & Kate Plus 8 is damaging to the kids but this is "transporting"? Ok.

  • Cree83

    This is a fictional movie. Nobody is broadcasting any of the actors' private lives to strangers.

  • hapl0

    Ohh, my bad then.

  • All I want to know is whether reshoots were done with time travel or vat-grown clones.

  • pajiba

    I sh*t you not, people, this is the best movie I've seen in a decade.

  • Ryan Ambrose

    Ohh, Ethan Hawke. On any other occasion I would have wanted to punch that douche grin out of your face because of all the bad movies you made me sit through.

    But then I see you in a project such as this and I am reminded of what a naturally talented performer you are. It's the Nicholas Cage Effect in action.

    Didn't Simpsons do something like this?

    For once, The Simpsons didn't do it first.
