I can't help feeling the gorgeous trailer for The Light Between Oceans–opening September 2—gives too much of the story away. I've read the novel by M.L. Stedman, so it really shouldn't matter to me, and I know plenty of you have too. If you haven't, get busy. It's a powerful deeply moving book. I grumble because the marketing is an example of our society's current information overload where trailers seem to be mini-synopses of the movies rather than short promotional vehicles designed to fan our interest. Do sights like mine, where I try to share as much information as I can glean about upcoming films, spoil the sheer magic that is movie making? Or do they enhance it? The latter I hope.
That being said, today's Slacker Sunday video is an exclusive featurette in which Alicia Vikander, Michael Fassbender and director Derek Cianfrance talk about the story behind The Light Between Oceans. The film on which Vikander and Fassy fell in love.
