PATERSON Trailer Premiere: Jim Jarmusch's lyrical drama is transporting

Jim Jarmusch’s Paterson, a lyrical drama that pivots around a bus driver who moonlights as a poet, looks uniquely intriguing even from his earlier works; which, if you think about it, is only the filmmaker being consistent. In the case of the new film, plenty of room seems to have been left for contemplation and thought, a feat that’s packaged perfectly in a transporting two-minute trailer which has just recently been released.

Watch it here:


Adam Driver portrays the role of the driver-poet, who roams the streets of his hometown whose moniker he shares (Paterson, NJ). Driver’s performance had been the subject of many reviews from the critical rave the film had received when it premiered at Cannes this year.

The film is getting a theatrical release in the U.S. late December; are you excited? Let’s discuss in the comments!

You know, I didn't even know this existed until about a month ago. It sounded intriguing - Jim Jarmusch and Adam Driver is a hell of a combination. Jarmusch is one of my gods, and Driver's probably my favorite of the current bunch of emerging young American actors. And with this coming out in December, I'd love to see Jarmusch nominated. Fantastic trailer, and what a nice surprise this has all turned out to be.

Looks like it's going to be a happy December for you, then. A fan from the Philippines like myself has to wait a bit more until it premieres here theatrically (if at all).

I'm sorry to hear that, man. But hey, it looks like it'll be worth the wait.

Im fed up with Drivers wounded intellectual shtick. I get it, he looks weird and is therefore smart cause he couldnt get away with being a lazy attractive person, whatever.
