The first trailer for Steven Spielberg’s ‘The Fabelmans’ starring Michelle Williams, Paul Dano, Seth Rogen, and Gabriel LaBelle was revealed. It is set in post-World War II era Arizona, from age seven to eighteen, a young man named Sammy Fabelman discovers a shattering family secret and explores how the power of films can help him see the truth. Watch the trailer below.
Directed by Steven Spielberg from a screenplay he co-wrote with Tony Kushner. The film stars Gabriel LaBelle as Sammy Fabelman, a young aspiring filmmaker based on Spielberg himself, Michelle Williams as Mitzi Fabelman, Paul Dano as Burt Fabelman, Seth Rogen as Bennie Loewy, Judd Hirsch as Uncle Boris, Oakes Fegley as Chad Thomas, Gabriel Bateman, Nicolas Cantu, Julia Butters as Reggie Fabelman, and Birdie Borria as young Reggie.
Spielberg, Tony Kushner, and Kristie Macosko Krieger are producing. According to the Collider review, The Fabelmans is like delving into Spielberg’s childhood and watching his memories come to life on the screen—something a young Sammy almost certainly never saw as a possibility. Spielberg shows us his process in making his earliest film at a young age, his inspirations, and the moments in his life that influenced him to make his early films the way they were. Sammy also films his family, getting to see his mother, father, sisters and his father’s best friend Bennie (Seth Rogen) in a way that no one else in the family can see. Sammy captures everything with his camera: the joys, the pain, and with that, sees the power that crafting a film can have—both good and bad. As Sammy’s Uncle Boris (an excellent Judd Hirsch) says in a family visit, he’s a junkie for art.
The Fabelmans is scheduled for a limited theatrical release by Universal Pictures in the United States on November 11, 2022, before expanding wide on November 23.
