A Long Way Down adaptation gets an emotional and uplifting trailer

Nick Hornby has a talent for weaving emotional depth and humour into the same stories so it is no surprise to see that the new trailer for A Long Way Down - the latest adaptation based on one of his beloved novels - looks to follow the same path.

The story of four strangers who meet at the top of a building as they plan to commit suicide by jumping off it is an emotional and endearing one and with an impressive cast that includes Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots, this is sure to make audiences laugh and cry when it arrives in cinemas on 21st March.

A Long Way Down synopsis
New Year’s Eve on the top of a London skyscraper. MARTIN (Brosnan) is literally on the edge. A once-beloved TV personality, he’s now desperate to jump. But he’s not alone. Single mother MAUREEN, (Collette), sassy teen JESS (Poots), and failed musician turned pizza-delivery boy JJ (Paul), have all turned up on the same roof with the same plan. Instead of jumping, these four strangers make a pact to stay alive and stay together until Valentine’s Day at least. Both funny and poignant, A LONG WAY DOWN follows this group of unlikely friends as they try to pull back from the brink.
