Finally, the official theatrical trailer for Third Person has landed, released by Sony Pictures Classics and Yahoo Movies earlier. Third Person tells three stories of love, passion, trust and betrayal, in a multi-strand story line. The tales play out in New York, Paris and Rome: three couples who appear to have nothing related but share deep commonalities: lovers and estranged spouses, children lost and found. The movie opens on June 20, 2014.
MICHAEL (Liam Neeson) is a Pulitzer Prize-winning fiction author who has holed himself up in a hotel suite in Paris to finish his latest book. He recently left his wife, ELAINE (Kim Basinger), and is having a tempestuous affair with ANNA (Olivia Wilde), an ambitious young journalist who wants to write and publish fiction.
At the same time, SCOTT (Adrien Brody), a shady American businessman, is in Italy to steal designs from fashion houses. Hating everything Italian, Scott wanders into the “Café Americano” in search of something familiar to eat. There, he meets MONIKA (Moran Atias), a beautiful Roma woman, who is about to be reunited with her young daughter. When the money she has saved to pay her daughter’s smuggler is stolen, Scott feels compelled to help. They take off together for a dangerous town in Southern Italy, where Scott starts to suspect that he is the patsy in an elaborate con game.
JULIA (Mila Kunis), an ex-soap opera actress, is caught in a custody battle for her 6 year-old son with her ex-husband RICK (James Franco), a famous New York artist. With her support cut off and her legal costs ruinous, Julia is reduced to working as a maid in the same upscale boutique hotel where she was once a frequent guest. Julia’s lawyer THERESA (Maria Bello) has secured Julia one final chance to change the court’s mind and be reunited with the child she loves. Rick’s current girlfriend SAM (Loan Chabanol) is a compassionate onlooker.
First international trailer for Third Person hit the internet, and it’s terrific. The movie is being released on June 20, and also set for Tribeca Film Festival later this month (April 24). Take a look!
A very first (30 sec) teaser trailer for ’Third Person’ has been published via official Japanese site – www.third-person.jp. The movie (previously screened at Toronto Film Festival) is now set for Tribeca Film Festival on April 24.
New York writer Michael (Liam Neeson) has recently split with his wife. His lover, Anna (Olivia Wilde), comes to visit him in a Paris hotel, but their relationship is complicated due to her inability to commit—he doesn’t know it, but she’s hiding a terrible secret.
Despite being accused of negligence in an accident that almost caused her son’s death, New Yorker Julia (Mila Kunis) firmly denies being responsible. Charged with negligence, she loses custody of her son to his father Rick (James Franco) , who tries his best to take the boy away from her permanently.
American businessman Sean (Adrien Brody) falls in love with a Gypsy woman, Monika (Morn Atias) while on a trip to Rome. He gets caught up in her life to the point that he’s involved in trying to free her kidnapped daughter from an Italian gangster. When he’s asked to help put up money for her ransom, Sean begins to wonder whether he’s being set up.
Third Person has been added to the “Spotlight section” at 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.
Veteran screenwriter and director Paul Haggis (Crash) brings to the screen a calculated vision of the drama of love. Three stories set in cities known for romance—New York, Rome, and Paris—take raw and personal twists as characters grapple with the difficulties of modern relationships. With a heavyweight cast including James Franco, Mila Kunis, Liam Neeson, Olivia Wilde, Adrien Brody, and Maria Bello, Haggis once again weaves an intricate narrative out of seemingly separate worlds.
