First poster and trailer for Alexander Payne’s Nebraska

Paramount Vantage has released the first poster and trailer for Alexander Payne’s Nebraska. A favourite for Oscar glory before it even began shooting this does look like something that the Academy will admire.

The film is the story of man who travels with his son to Nebraska in the belief that he has won money. Along the way he meets friends, relatives and acquaintances who all want a piece of the action.

Bruce Dern is in the central role, with Will Forte, Bob Odenkirk, Stacy Keach, and June Squibb also starring.

Nebraska is out in the US on November 15th, and in Ireland on December 13th.


After receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail, a cantankerous father (Bruce Dern) thinks he’s struck it rich, and wrangles his son (Will Forte) into taking a road trip to claim the fortune. Shot in black and white across four states, Nebraska tells the stories of family life in the heartland of America.
