THE GOLDFINCH – Official Trailer 1

The Goldfinch – In Theaters September 13

From Warner Bros. Pictures and Amazon Studios, “The Goldfinch” is the film adaptation of Donna Tartt’s globally acclaimed best-selling novel, which won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction.

Directed by BAFTA Award winner John Crowley (“Brooklyn”), the film features a multigenerational cast led by Ansel Elgort (“Baby Driver”) as Theo Decker and Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman (“The Hours,” “Big Little Lies”) as Mrs. Barbour.

Theodore “Theo” Decker was 13 years old when his mother was killed in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The tragedy changes the course of his life, sending him on a stirring odyssey of grief and guilt, reinvention and redemption, and even love. Through it all, he holds on to one tangible piece of hope from that terrible day…a painting of a tiny bird chained to its perch. The Goldfinch.

“The Goldfinch” is produced by Nina Jacobson (“The Hunger Games” films, “American Crime Story”) and Brad Simpson (“World War Z,” “American Crime Story”). Mari Jo Winkler-Ioffreda, Kevin McCormick, Sue Kroll and Courtenay Valenti are the executive producers. The screenplay is by Oscar nominee Peter Straughan (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”), based on the novel by Donna Tartt, which spent 30 weeks on The New York Times Best Sellers list.

The film also stars Oakes Fegley (“Pete’s Dragon”) as Young Theo, Aneurin Barnard (“Dunkirk”) as Boris, Finn Wolfhard (“Stranger Things,” “It”) as Young Boris, with Sarah Paulson (“The Post,” “American Crime Story”) as Xandra, Luke Wilson (“The Royal Tenenbaums”) as Larry, and Jeffrey Wright (“The Hunger Games” films) as Hobie. Rounding out the main ensemble cast are Ashleigh Cummings (“Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries”) as Pippa, Willa Fitzgerald (“Little Women”) as Kitsey Barbour, Aimee Laurence (“Chicago P.D.”) as Young Pippa, Denis O’Hare (“American Horror Story”) as Lucius Reeve, and Boyd Gaines (2014’s “Driving Miss Daisy”) as Mr. Barbour.

The behind-the-scenes creative team included Oscar-winning director of photography Roger Deakins (“Blade Runner 2049”), Oscar-nominated production designer K.K. Barrett (“Her”), editor Kelley Dixon (“Breaking Bad”), and costume designer Kasia Walicka Maimone (“Bridge of Spies”). The music is by Trevor Gureckis (“Bloodline”).

Slated for release on September 13, 2019, “The Goldfinch” is a presentation of Warner Bros. Pictures, in association with Amazon Studios, a Color Force Production, a John Crowley Film. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. “The Goldfinch” has been rated R for drug use and language.

    Just streamed the film last night and found it to be wonderful in story and also cinematography. Read the reviews (wiki included this morning) and was astonished to find how it 'bombed' at the movies losing $50 mill, and how the reviewers slated it as 'trash'. Yet, for me, this is one of the best films Ive seen for quite a while. I understand that film productions of novels can be awkward at best when trying to capture the sense of the written form, but I'd highly recommend this film- quite beautiful. Clearly, according to the professional reviews and movie-going public, whadda I know? Ah well… Se la vie!

    This trailer is really good because it makes the movie look so much better than it was. I'll never get over how this "film" completely botched such a good novel and missed all of the points and themes within it so much it almost seemed deliberate.

    As a slavic I must admit Finn did very well with the slavic accent… his canadian slipped here and there. But he nailed the pronounciation of many words (Canada, Harry Potter…) as slavic people typicaly say them

    I just finished the book today and I am excited to see in brought to life, despite the bad reviews. I think everyone should take time to read this. It's taken me a month to read it but it's worth it!
