We just stumbled upon the trailer of Mr. Nobody via Quiet Earth (here). Mr. Nobody is a sci fi movie written and directed by Belgian Director Jaco Van Dormael and starring Jared Leto in the lead role. There is no denying that this trailer caught my attention: there is a feel of Donnie Darko or of the Butterfly Effect with something more that makes the movie even more strangely appealing.
Watch below the movie trailer of Mr. Nobody:
“Nemo Nobody leads an ordinary existence at his wife’s side, Elise, and their 3 children until the day when reality skids and he wakes up as an old man in the year 2092. At 120, Mr. Nobody is both the oldest man in the world and the last mortal of a new mankind where nobody dies anymore. But that doesn’t seem to interest or bother him very much. The only questions that preoccupy him in the present is whether he lived the right life for himself, loved the woman whom he was supposed to love, and had the children whom he was meant to have… now his purpose is to find the right answer.”
The best science fiction stories always have an excuse to digg into human emotions and to show what may people tick, that’s what make them so great. And I believe that Mr Nobody is one of those great sci-fi movies!
The movie will be released on October 9, 2009 in Belgium, but no US release for lack of distributor. Hope that a US distributor will pick it up soon.
