Despite making our prestigious 2013 countdown, it truly feels as if zero discussion has been following The Young and Prodigious Spivet, director Jean-Pierre Jeunet‘s (Amelie) first foray into the eye-popping world of 3D cinema. A small selection of photos had been released, some international dates had been set, and… well, that was about the extent of it. Playing it close to the chest, they were?
But as the summer movie season kicks into high gear and, with this, fall titles begin to receive trailers, previously unseen work is coming to light. Spivet just so happens to be next on the block, for Allocine have debuted an English-language, French-subtitled trailer that shows off Jeunet‘s typically boisterous images and burnished photography, complete with all the whimsy we’d also expect in full. Going off the supplied material (admittedly not much), an American setting could make way for a different tone than his Franco-centered past efforts — its plot follows a boy, T. S. Spivet (Kyle Catlett), who travels from his country home to the Smithsonian — but fans need not fear: much of the rest looks like Jeunet through and through.

Does this look to be Jeunet’s return to form?
