Although it’s set during a civil war, “Belfast” focuses heavily on family, including Buddy’s parents known as Ma (Caitriona Balfe) and Pa (Jamie Dornan), and his grandparents Granny (Judi Dench) and Pop (Ciarán Hinds). In September, the first “Belfast” trailer premiered on YouTube and gave us a first look at the events to come. Set to the upbeat song “Everlasting Love,” the first trailer offered a more lighthearted look at the film. The newest trailer, however, is decidedly more intense.
The second “Belfast” trailer starts on a light note, similar to the first, and we see Buddy trying to impress his crush while his father and grandfather encourage him. Then, the music stops, a crowd descends as Buddy plays with other kids in the street, and a car explodes — seemingly kicking off the political unrest at the center of the film. We then get glimpses of the family as they try to decide whether to stay in their beloved home, while Buddy tries to understand what’s going on in the world around him.
You can watch “Belfast” in theaters on November 12.
