Trash, Rooney Mara
Here's the deal: if you see a trailer this week for a prestige, awards contender seeming movie, the chances are you'll likely see it somewhere on the fall festival slate. And so, even though we weren't quite sure where Stephen Daldry's "Trash" would fit on the calendar, it's done, in the can, a trailer is here, and now you can see if the Oscar race is being shaken up.

Wow, we guess it really was 2011 that Stephen Daldry's "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close" hit theaters, and while he's been quiet on the cinematic front he's still been very busy. Daldry was a producer for the opening and closing ceremonies at the 2012 Summer London Olympics but his next movie has been cooking up for a while. Way back in the spring of 2011 it was revealed that Daldry was going to direct an adaptation of Andy Mulligan's book "Trash," with a script from Richard Curtis ("Love Actually," "About Time"). And unlike most movies that sit around for a couple of years, this one has now started to press forward.

While the modern movie musical has been an unpredictable mixed bag ("Mamma Mia!" a hit, but retro "Rock Of Ages" and classic-feeling "Nine" flopped), it seems Hollywood still thinks there is money to be had. And they are hoping stage success can translate to movie audiences (though again, that didn't mean a thing for "Rock Of Ages").

In Jonathan Safran Foer’s “Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close,” the author tells the story of Oskar Schell, a school-age boy who grapples with the passing of his father in the 9/11 attacks. Adapting such difficult material was never going to be easy, and with Stephen Daldry’s new film of the same title, the obstacles were twofold. One must have fidelity not only to the source material, but to the tragedies of the event itself. Gathering together to talk with the press in New York City recently, the cast and filmmaker related the importance of being true to the emotions that still linger from that fateful September day.

At present, up to the imminent release of “Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close,” Stephen Daldry is three-for-three in terms of films to Best Director Oscar nominations; there’s clearly something about the stories he tells hitting a nerve among Academy voters, no matter how challenging (“The Hours”) or even controversial (“The Reader”) his subject matter. 'Extremely Loud' suggests that he’s as interested as ever in posing hard questions and finding powerful answers, as he brings to life Jonathan Safran Foer’s novel about a child with Asperger’s who takes an extraordinary journey to come to terms with the death of his father during 9/11.

Review: 'Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close' Is Often Moving But Insufficiently Effective

Oskar Schell, the protagonist of "Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close," isn’t like other boys. Sure, he likes laughing and junk food and having a good time like the other kids. But this overly precocious ten year old is more of an Encyclopedia Brown in training. With the guidance of his father, he pieces together the mysteries of history, breaking down everyday life into a puzzle. The unspoken tragedy of this is that Oskar doesn’t have a life. What makes up his existence is the notion of an interconnected web attaching his life experiences as if they all influenced another, domino-style. He’s a ten year old boy who doesn’t appear to have many friends, aside from his overactive father.

This year marks a full decade since Michael Chabon's masterpiece "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay," a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel telling the story of America in the 1930s and 1940s through the eyes of two Jewish comic book creators, was published. And as tends to happen with a cultural phenomenon like that book, movie rights were snapped up even before publication, with Scott Rudin (who produced the adaptation of Chabon's "Wonder Boys" around the same time) acquiring the project, and setting the late Sydney Pollack to direct, with Jude Law circling the role of escape-artist-turned-comic-artist Joe Kavalier.

The Academy loves Stephen Daldry. Every film he has directed thus far -- "Billy Elliot," "The Hours" and "The Reader" -- has been nominated for Best Director, with the last two also taking Best Picture nods, in addition to a host of other honors. And, even though Daldry's latest effort, an adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer's "Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close," has yet to be unveiled this late in the game, the film will seems poised to hit it big with voters with its post 9/11 dramatics.

Richard Curtis -- who wrote "Four Weddings and a Funeral, "Bridget Jones's Diary" and directed "Love Actually" and "Pirate Radio" -- has much to celebrate with his adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's "War Horse" hitting theaters later this month, but he's not taking any time off. He's already hard at work on his next adaptation of another children's book by a British author, this time to be directed by Stephen Daldry for Working Title. Andy Mulligan's second novel is called "Trash," but to Curtis, it's pure gold.

With the names Richard Curtis ("Love Actually," "Four Weddings And A Funeral") and Stephen Daldry ("The Hours," "Billy Elliot") attached, you might think this is automatic Oscar bait, but what they're cooking up together looks like more of an adventure film with some serious cred behind it.
