This is the first official trailer for Breathe, a biographical drama that marks the feature directorial debut of Andy Serkis. But before you click play know that this trailer pretty much summarize the movie from start to finish.
“Robin Cavendish, who after being given only three months to live after being paralysed from the neck down by polio at age 28, becomes a pioneering advocate for the disabled. He and his devoted wife, Diana, travel the world with the hopes of transforming the lives of others like him.”
Like I said in the intro, that’s probably the entire movie in two and a half minutes. I mean it looks like a very beautiful movie and Andrew Garfield might get his second Oscar nod for Breathe, which is all great, but I feel like there was maybe a better way to do this trailer that didn’t show so much. Then again, how else do you sell a movie such as this one?
Andy Serkis (who also helmed Warner’s 2018 Jungle Book: Origins) directed Breathe and William Nicholson wrote the screenplay. Starring in the film are Andrew Garfield, Claire Foy, Dean-Charles Chapman (Tommen on Game of Thrones) and a few others.
Breathe opens October 13th in the US and October 27th in the UK.
