Here is the first look at All Is Lost, J.C. Chandor’s follow-up to his Oscar-nominated debut feature film Margin Call. Starring Robert Redford (and no one else), the film tells the story of a sailor stranded at sea and forced to face his own mortality amidst the uncertainty of finding help. The film premiered to much acclaim at the Cannes Film Festival this past May, where Redford’s performance was pinned as a leading awards contender.
Redford, himself appears to be on an upward swing of ubiquity as of late. The onetime matinee idol, Sundance Kid, Academy-Award winning director (1980’s Ordinary People), and literal Sundance kid (as the founder of the famed Park City film festival) seems to be taking a stronger turn toward acting these days. He appeared (as well as directed) this springs indie hit The Company You Keep and will appear in the Marvel film Captain America: The Winter Soldier, out next April.
All Is Lost is due for release on October 18, 2013. See the trailer below:
