New Trailer, Poster and Pictures for Michel Hazanavicius' Cannes Entry 'The Search'

The Search trailer

Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist) will see his new film The Search, starring Berenice Bejo, premiere in front of press at the Cannes Film Festival tomorrow, but today we are all getting an advanced look at the upcoming feature with the first trailer, poster and a few pictures.

The film is a remake of Fred Zinneman's 1948 film, this one taking place in 1999 and set in war-torn Chechnya. A small boy has fled his village after his parents were killed, joining the flood of refugees when He meets Carole (Bejo), a European Union delegation head. Little by little, with her help, he will return to life.

Along with Bejo, the film co-stars Annette Bening and is obviously being considered a film to look out for come Oscar season. Tomorrow's screening and critical reception will help us in figuring out just how big a player it might be.

Check out the trailer, pics and poster below.

    Looks much better than I expected, however, trailer doesn't present moments proving that Berenice and Anette have meaty roles, mostly it's concentrated on the topic and people lives afftected by politics and war. Anyway, looks promising and can grab unexpected win in Cannes.

    I just watched the Zinneman film for the first time a couple of months ago. Interested to see what Hazanavicius does with it.
