Official trailer for ‘Beautiful Boy’ with Timothée Chalamet and Steve Carell is a heartbreaker

The first full trailer for Beautiful Boy, the English-language debut of Belgian director Felix Van Groeningen (the Oscar-nominated The Broken Circle Breakdown), is here and it’s a doozy.

Oscar nominees Steve Carell (Foxcatcher) and Timothée Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name) star as David and Nic Sheff, a father and son whose memoirs (“Beautiful Boy” and “Tweak,” respectively) tell the heartbreakingly real story of a family experiencing survival, relapse and recovery through Nic’s years-long drug addiction.

Beautiful Boy co-stars Emmy nominee and Golden Globe winner Maura Tierney (E.R., The Affair) and Oscar nominee Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone). It’s got the powerhouse set of Oscar-winning producers of Plan B behind it including Brad Pitt (12 Years a Slave), and Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner (Moonlight).

Right now, I have Steve Carell at #3 in Best Actor and Timothée Chalamet at #1 in Supporting Actor in my 2019 Oscar prediction charts with the film and its screenplay moving up. I expect this to have a major fall festival presence and be a major Oscar player.

Amazon Studios will release BEAUTIFUL BOY in theaters October 12, 2018.

Here is the trailer and poster.

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
