EXTREMELY LOUD AND INCREDIBLY CLOSE
During a recent visit to New York City I came across what was clearly a movie set. The trailers lined both sides of the street, and a crew with lights and camera were working on the side walk. The movie buff that I am had to check the Internet to see what was filming in New York that day. It said a movie starring Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock titled EXREMELY LOUD AND INCREDIBLY CLOSE was shooting that day on the same street I was on. I looked around for a few minutes assuming it was another Sandra Bullock romantic comedy that would come and go. Boy was I wrong. It turns out that the movie is based on a book with the same name written in 2005. It is about a nine year old boy who lost his father September 11th. He finds a key to door left by his dead father. He desperately searches for what the key will open to learn more about his father and his life. It originally was set to release on 2012, but it was recently announced that it will be released this year in time for the award season. Some have already predicted this as winning Best Picture. There has not been an official trailer released yet, but I will keep you updated on the release.
