A24 has released a new teaser trailer for Lenny Abrahamson‘s (Frank) Room, which will be making its world premiere at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival as part of its special presentation lineup. The film stars Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay as Ma and Jack, a mother and son trapped in a 10×10 foot room who hatch a plan to escape, but find acclimating to the real world is the most challenging part. 

Room is based on the novel by Emma Donoghue and also stars Joan Allen and William H. Macy. After premiering at Tiff, it will open in New York and Los Angeles October 16th, with a nationwide release November 6th.

ROOM tells the extraordinary story of Jack (Jacob Tremblay in a breakout performance), a spirited 5 year-old who is looked after by his loving and devoted Ma (Brie Larson, SHORT TERM 12, TRAINWRECK). Like any good mother, Ma dedicates herself to keeping Jack happy and safe, nurturing him with warmth and love and doing typical things like playing games and telling stories. Their life, however, is anything but typical—they are trapped—confined to a windowless, 10-by-10-foot space, which Ma has euphemistically named “Room.” Ma has created a whole universe for Jack within Room, and she will stop at nothing to ensure that, even in this treacherous environment, Jack is able to live a complete and fulfilling life. But as Jack’s curiosity about their situation grows, and Ma’s resilience reaches its breaking point, they enact a risky plan to escape, ultimately bringing them face-to-face with what may turn out to be the scariest thing yet: the real world. ROOM also stars three-time Academy Award® nominee Joan Allen and Academy Award® nominee William H. Macy.
