The trailer has been released for The Lovely Bones, the adaptation of Alice Sebold's harrowing novel about the aftermath of a teenage girl's rape and murder. The book, published in 2002, was a huge hit and fans have been eagerly awaiting the movie.
It will be interesting to see how Peter Jackson, director of the Dreamworks film, handles the otherworldliness, with the dead girl watching from heaven as relatives cope with the loss. Judge for yourself from the trailer.
