Trailer Debut: Submarine

The first trailer for the very buzzy British indie flick Submarine has debuted online. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September of 2010 to much acclaim, and has been circling the festival circuit (including a stop at Sundance) ahead of its March release.

Submarine is written and directed by Richard Ayoade, who is best known as Moss from The I.T. Crowd (or, to fellow comedy geeks, as Dean Lerner from Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace). He is also, however, an accomplished music video director, having helmed videos for Arctic Monkeys, Vampire Weekend and Yeah Yeah Yeahs among others.

Based on the novel of the same name by Joe Dunthorne, it tells the story of a 15-year-old boy named Oliver Tate (Craig Roberts) whose perception of the world differs greatly from reality. He attempts to reunite his fractured family, whilst simultaneously trying to have it off with his girlfriend (Yasmin Paige).

Any film that looks like a fusion of Ghost World, Rushmore and Heartbeats has my undivided attention. Check out this beautiful trailer and share your thoughts below.

Submarine, executive produced by Ben Stiller, also stars the great Sally Hawkins, Paddy Considine and Noah Taylor. Alex Taylor of Arctic Monkeys provides the soundtrack. It opens March 18, 2011 in the U.K., with an Australian release to hopefully follow.

Discuss: Damn, this film looks pretty.
