Amelie Director Jean-Pierre Jeunet's New Film Gets Trailer

Amélie director Jean-Pierre Jeunet is back with his first English-language film since 1997's Alien: Resurrection. It's called, strangely, The Young And Prodigious Spivet, and it stars Helena Bonham-Carter, Callum Keith Rennie, Kathy Bates, Judy Davis, newcomer Kyle Catlett and Dominique Pinon.

Based on Reif Larsen's 'The Selected Works Of T.S. Spivet', IMDb describes Jeunet's film as thus: A 12-year-old cartographer secretly leaves his family's ranch in Montana where he lives with his cowboy father and scientist mother and travels across the country on board a freight train to receive an award at the Smithsonian Institute.

Get a load of the trailer which, visually at least, is undeniably Jeunet-ian (that's a word, right?). Expect to hear more about this one as it climbs aboard the festival carousel later this year.
