The Book Thief Trailer

Here’s the first trailer of The Book Thief, based on the prize-winning and well-loved book of the same name:

The synopsis goes like this: While subjected to the horrors of WWII Germany, young Liesel finds solace by stealing books and sharing them with others. Under the stairs in her home, a Jewish refuge is being sheltered by her adoptive parents.

While Death (as an entity) is not mentioned, I do hope he makes an appareance in the film!

The Book Thief is directed by Brian Percival and stars Emily Watson, Geoffrey Rush and Sophie Nélisse in German accent. The film was moved forward to November 15, 2013 (the original date was January 17, 2014) in order to compete in the 2013-14 award season.
