I have a confession to make: Despite the involvement of Gerard Butler and Jodie Foster in this kids' adventure movie, I've been avoiding watching the trailer because I thought it might make me cringe so much my face would get stuck that way. Now, having watched the adorable trailer for Nim's Island — which also stars the ever-charming Abigail Breslin — I feel a little ashamed. And I kind of can't wait to see this movie.
Foster plays Alexandra, a reclusive yet wildly successful children's book novelist whose main character, Alex Rover, is the hero to Nim (Breslin), a girl living on her magical Nim's Island with her scientist father. When he goes missing, Nim desperately needs Alexandra's (and Alex Rover's) help in conquering the mysterious island's challenges. Gerard Butler looks nice as usual, and Jodie Foster is refreshingly funny in this preview. Nim's Island opens April 4.
