THIRD PERSON International Trailer and Poster

Following last year debut at TIFF and ahead of the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival, an international trailer has dropped online for Paul Haggis‘ most recent directorial effort, Third Person.

Judging by this trailer, it’s likely Crash writer-director Haggis has served up another dud, even with a great cast including Liam Neeson, Mila Kunis, James Franco, Olivia Wilde, Adrien Brody, Maria Bello, Kim Basinger and Moran Atias.

He returned to the world of interconnected stories, but still doesn’t trust his audiences to figure anything out on their own. Moreover, this looks melodramatic, overwrought and it’s corny as hell so if you hated Crash (or In the Valley of Elah), you’ll probably take issue with Haggis’ latest film, Third Person, which is still without a domestic release date.

The drama will stop by Tribeca before it gets a release in Italy and Belgium this month and Japan later this year.

Check out the first trailer and poster below, coming from Japan complete with lots of Japanese title cards.

Third Person tells three stories of love, passion, trust and betrayal. The tales play out in New York, Paris and Rome through three couples who appear to have nothing in common and only tangential connections. But there is always a third person in any relationship — perhaps not romantically, perhaps you aren’t even aware of their existence, but they are there. At its heart, Third Person is much more than a collection of love stories — it is a mystery; a puzzle in which truth is revealed in glimpses, and clues are caught by the corner of your eye — and nothing is truly what it seems.
