We were provided with four clips and a batch of stills, but now Sony Pictures Classics have finally launched the trailer for Smashed. We loved James Ponsoldt’s drama, calling it one of our favorite films at Sundance. The film follows Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World‘s Mary Elizabeth Winstead in a devastating look at alcoholism.

Light on dialogue, it still provides a solid sense of what to expect, as we mostly see Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul and his relationship with Winstead.

Grand Piano is a film that is so masterfully done that it seems silly one would ever have doubts that the story could be pulled off. Much of that has to do with the work of the blossoming director Eugenio Mira, who actually created animatics of the film to get everyone on the same page. Starring Elijah Wood as [...]
