PanARMENIAN.Net - The first trailer for James McAvoy and Jessica Chastain's The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby has debuted online, The Hollywood Reporter said.
The Oscar hopeful, which The Weinstein Co. picked up after the well-received premiere of its two versions at last year's Toronto Film Festival, was presented as one film at Cannes last month.
The trailer begins with Chastain's Eleanor Rigby and McAvoy's Conor Ludlow falling in love — before things get dark.
As the two are shown dancing, laughing and rolling around in a field, a voiceover says, "Everyone starts out thinking this is forever. But then things get hard." Chastain is then heard saying, "I can't do this anymore," and Conor discovers Eleanor has vanished.
Eleanor is shown talking to her family and exploring another life while Conor is hesitant to go after her. "I need to try some other version of myself," Eleanor says. "I'll never get to where we were … someplace good."
The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, written and directed by Ned Benson and co-starring William Hurt and Viola Davis, is set to hit theaters on Sept. 26.
