The first trailer arrives for Steven Spielberg’s loosely autobiographical take on his childhood, The Fablemans.
The Fablemans is something of an uncharacteristic step for director Steven Spielberg. Said to be a tale based loosely on Spielberg’s childhood, this will mark the first time that the legendary director has directly set out to tell a story about a part of his life that has influenced so much of his greatest work.
Spielberg has finished up work on the The Fablemans, with Universal releasing it for the American Thanksgiving holiday in November. It debuted over the weekend at the Toronto Film Festival too.
Ahead of that date though, a first trailer for the film has arrived for the coming of age film.
Michelle Williams, Seth Rogen, Paul Dano, Julia Butters and David Lynch will be joined by newcomer Gabriel LaBelle, who is expected to play a young, film-obsessed child growing up in Arizona who becomes inspired to make movies. Lincoln and Munich screenwriter Tony Kushner has penned the script whilst John Williams has composed the film’s score.
We don’t get the film in the UK until next year, but you can see the trailer right here…
