TRAILER: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (2011, Daldry)

It’s not that it looks good, per se, but it sure looks right up Oscar’s alley. The most important thing about this trailer is simple: Max Von Sydow, who has jumped to the front of the Supporting Actor race.

The Bergman regular has had some flirtations with Oscar in recent years, getting closest for a two-scene performance in The Diving Bell and the Butterfly back in 2007. If you can actually believe it, Sydow has only one Oscar nom, coming for his lead turn in 1988’s Pelle the Conqueror.
