The subject of suicide seems hardly comedic or even heartwarming, but the new trailer for A LONG WAY DOWN makes it look like a little of both. Based on the book by Nick Hornby (HIGH FIDELITY and ABOUT A BOY), adapted by Jack Thorne and directed by Pascal Chaumeil, the drama with comical elements stars Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Imogen Poots, and BREAKING BAD’s Aaron Paul as four very different people who oddly enough find themselves on the same roof all about to jump to their deaths. They decide to live, and their story becomes inspirational and life-changing. The film co-stars Rosamund Pike (who previously starred with Brosnan in his last Bond movie DIE ANOTHER DAY) and Sam Neill (who oddly enough was almost James Bond before Timothy Dalton got the role). Take a look at the trailer below and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

New Year’s Eve on the top of a London skyscraper. MARTIN (Brosnan) is literally on the edge. A once-beloved TV personality, he’s now desperate to jump. But he’s not alone. Single mother MAUREEN, (Collette), sassy teen JESS (Poots), and failed musician turned pizza-delivery boy JJ (Paul), have all turned up on the same roof with the same plan.

Instead of jumping, these four strangers make a pact to stay alive and stay together until Valentine’s Day at least. Both funny and poignant, A LONG WAY DOWN follows this group of unlikely friends as they try to pull back from the brink.

A LONG WAY DOWN opens in the UK on March 21, 2014 – no U.S. release date is set yet
