Yet another edgy trailer for Randall Miller (Bottle Shock) thriller Nobel Son, which opens in theaters this Friday, December 5th 2008. Only this one features a great shot of actress Eliza Dushku…that’s all I’ll say. Nobel Son looks like a mix of a Coen Brothers flick and Shoot’Em Up, and stars Alan Rickman as the deliciously contemptuous Eli Michaelson.
Written and produced by Miller, along with Jody Savin, Nobel Son is a venomous tale of familial dysfunction, lust, betrayal and ultimately revenge. Barkley Michaelson (Bryan Greenberg) is struggling to finish his Ph.D. thesis when his father, the learned Eli Michaelson (Alan Rickman), wins the Nobel Prize for Chemistry. But Eli’s past indiscretions begin to collide with the present. When Barkley is kidnapped on the eve of his father accepting the prize, Eli refuses to pay the ransom. So starts a game of intrigue and deception that proves that payback’s a bitch.
Nobel Son also features Shawn Hatosy, Mary Steenburgen, Bill Pullman, Eliza Dushku, Ernie Hudson, Ted Danson and Danny DeVito. The film features original music from composer Paul Oakenfold with tracks from Spitfire, Chemical Brothers and Groove Armada.
