Trailer Alert: The Fantastic First Look at The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, The Story of One Relationship Told in Two Parts
Written by Steven Panzarella(@ProCreateSteve)
The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby is Ned Benson's two part story about a relationship that falls apart. Designed to be released as two 95 minute movies entitled The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby:Him, the idea is to tell the story from different points of view but to witness the whole thing separately. For what can only be presumed as award season reasons, The Weinstein Company has asked writer/director Ned Benson to release one 2 hour version of both movies. All three versions will be released simultaneously but only the 2 hour version is slated to get a full release. The trailer below if for the combined version, about a couple Eleanor (Jessica Chastain) and Conor (James McAvoy) who fall in love then fall out of love and attempt to pick up the pieces. If the trailer and the wonderfully creative story telling is any indication this is a movie to look forward to. The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them will hit theaters September 26th with the other two films releasing in select cities.
I personally would like to experience the two separate films back to back considering it is the way the director intended. It’s hard to not look forward to a movie that is being highly touted by the award hungry Weinstein’s, with a wonderful cast and a newbie writing and directing this movie should carry some promise heading into the start of Awards season.
