Watch: The Many Lives Of Jared Leto In Trailer For 'Mr. Nobody'

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist September 12, 2013 at 10:18AM

With production beginning in 2007, and premiering at the Venice Film Festival in 2009 (after being controversially rejected by Cannes), it has taken four years for Jaco Van Dormael's "Mr. Nobody" to secure a U.S. distributor and a release. (And we actually reviewed the movie when it opened in Canada three years ago). That should pretty much tell you all you need to know about this ambitious folly, but we reckon this new trailer does enough to showcase it's rather hokey conceit.

Mr. Nobody

With production beginning in 2007, and premiering at the Venice Film Festival in 2009 (after being controversially rejected by Cannes), it has taken four years for Jaco Van Dormael's "Mr. Nobody" to secure a U.S. distributor and a release. (And we actually reviewed the movie when it opened in Canada three years ago). That should pretty much tell you all you need to know about this ambitious folly, but we reckon this new trailer does enough to showcase its rather hokey conceit.

Something like a hybrid of "Sliding Doors" and "Cloud Atlas," the film tells the story of Nemo Nobody (Jared Leto), the last mortal human on Earth in 2092, who recounts the events of his life to a newsreporter. What follows is pretty messy jumble of storytelling that essentially finds Nemo detailing two lives: one that would have unfolded had he stayed with his father or mother, following their divorce. This includes relationships with a handful of women, something about angels and at least four lectures in the movie itself about string theory in case it wasn't obvious enough.

Co-starring Sarah Polley, Diane Kruger, Linh-Dan Pham, Rhys Ifans, Natasha Little, Toby Regbo and Juno Temple, "Mr. Nobody" goes VOD on September 26th and opens in limited release on November 1st. Watch below.
