First trailer for Restless

Columbia Pictures has debuted, via Moviefone, the first trailer for Gus van Sant’s new drama Restless, starring Mia Wasikowska and Henry Hopper. And it’s quite possibly the strangest movie we will see all year.

Restless tells the story of a 16-year-old terminally ill girl who falls for a boy who likes to attend funerals and their encounters with the ghost of a Japanese kamikaze pilot from WWII. See weird, right?

It’s an interesting looking project and van Sant is a fine film-maker so I’m looking forward to checking this out when it is released early next year.
