New Trailer for The Book Thief

A new trailer has been released for The Book Thief, this one coming from the U.K. The film is based on the best-selling novel by Australian author Markus Zusak; a truly wonderful piece of literature that is both creative and moving. The second trailer renews our hope for a decent film, after the disappointingly forced and tacky U.S. trailer. The book packed an emotional wallop, fingers crossed the film does the same.

Check out the film’s synopsis and poster underneath the trailer.
