The Young And Prodigious Spivet

During the hustle and bustle of the Cannes Film Festival you may have missed it, but Jean-Pierre Jeunet's upcoming 3D English-language film "The Young And Prodigious Spivet" recently dropped a pretty charming trailer and it seemed to impress the right people. Over the weekend, Deadline reported that none other that Harvey Weinstein swooped in to grab the U.S. rights to the picture for his The Weinstein Company and now a few more pics have emerged for the movie.

Based on the best-selling novel "The Selected Works Of T.S. Spivet" by Reif Larsen, the film features Helena Bonham-Carter, Callum Keith Rennie, Judy Davis, Kathy Bates, Dominique Pinon with newcomer Kyle Catlett, and it follows a young amateur cartographer, the titular Spivet, who travels cross-country on a freight train to visit the Smithsonian Institute. Of course that is merely the start of an adventure told the way only Jeunet can tell it. While there is no domestic date yet, it is arriving in France on October 10th and in addition to the new photo there's a poster as well for the international release.

Check out the official synopsis, one sheet and pics below.

T.S. Spivet lives on a ranch in Montana with his mother, who is obsessed with beetle morphology, his cowboy father, who was born 100 years too late, and his 14 year old sister, who dreams of being Miss America. T.S. is a 12 year old child prodigy with a passion for cartography and scientific inventions. One day he receives an unexpected call from the Smithsonian announcing he has won the Baird award for the discovery of the perpetual motion machine, and is invited to make a speech. Unbeknownst to all, he decides to head for Washington D.C. crossing the United States on a freight train... but no one at the Smithsonian has any idea that he is only a child...
