The Orchard has released the new trailer and poster for Joachim Trier‘s small-scale family drama Louder Than Bombs, ahead of the U.S. release in early April.

The English-language debut from Norwegian director Trier (Oslo, August 31st) features the ensemble of Jesse Eisenberg, Gabriel Byrne, Isabelle Huppert, Devin Druid, Rachel Brosnahan, David Strathairn, and Amy Ryan.

The film premiered at Cannes and the Toronto International Film Festival, heading to select U.S. theaters on April 8th before expanding. Here’s the full-length U.S. trailer for Louder Than Bombs, the feature about a car accident that kills a mother of a family.

I think the trailer tapped into how the movie was delivered. It looks like an art film with house money.
