Wow, The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby Trailer Looks Incredible

Ned Benson’s The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby is a movie, but it’s also three movies, or three versions of the same movie. Benson set out to tell a love story from the perspectives of both the woman and the man, with each gender getting its own 95-minute movie. Then, for approachability and Weinstein reasons, Benson made a third film, which runs about two hours and is built as a more traditional movie, featuring both perspectives. All three films will be released, with the two-hour unified movie, called The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them, getting a wide release on September 26; and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him getting a limited release later in the fall. Okay, with the logistics out of the way, let’s get to the story itself. The film(s) star(s) Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy as a married couple who has lost what they once had, and as things keep on getting worse, the film looks back at how they got to this point. No word on how much time will be dedicated to picking up rice in the church where a wedding has been.
