Emotive and moving first trailer arrives for Steven Spielberg’s semi-autobiographical film The Fabelmans

If you’re from a certain era, then Steven Spielberg has definitely played a huge part in your life – and I say this because I know he definitely has in mine. Whilst Jurassic Park was my first big cinema film memory, the likes of E.T., Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Jaws, Indiana Jones, Hook, Saving Private Ryan, Catch Me If You Can and beyond, have kept my love for film alive, and meant those journeys to the cinema are always exciting.

This first trailer for Spielberg’s The Fabelmans is a moving, emotive one and we know that it’s a semi-autobiographical story from the iconic filmmaker, and something he has talked about for over 20 years – and, no doubt, thought about for even longer. Written by Spielberg and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner, it stars Gabriel LaBelle as 16-year-old aspiring filmmaker Sammy Fabelman, plus the wonderful Michelle Williams as his artistic mother, Mitzi; the always compelling Paul Dano as his successful, scientific father, Burt; and the ever-impressive Seth Rogen as Bennie Loewy, Burt’s best friend and honorary “uncle” to the Fabelman children, and the iconic Judd Hirsch as Mitzi’s Uncle Boris.

Scored by John Williams, oh yes, get your first look now:

The ensemble cast includes Jeannie Berlin as Sammy’s paternal grandmother, Hadassah Fabelman; Julia Butters as Sammy’s sister Reggie; Robin Bartlett as Sammy’s maternal grandmother Tina Schildkraut and Keeley Karsten as Sammy’s sister Natalie.

Entertainment One (eOne) today will release The Fabelmans, in cinemas across the UK & Ireland from 27th January 2023
