Here is the first look at Peter Jackson’s long-awaited project The Lovely Bones, and it’s certainly something to see. Academy Award nominee Saoirse Ronan (Atonement) stars as Susie Salmon, a young girl who was murdered in 1973, and finds her soul caught in “the in-between,” haunted by her killer (Stanley Tucci) who has not been brought to justice. Her grieving father Jack (Mark Wahlberg) has clues but no evidence, and her mother Abigail (Rachel Weisz) and grandmother Lynn (Susan Sarandon) struggle to move on with their lives. Susie must watch her family grieve for her loss, while her sister Lindsey (Rose McIver) is determined to find the man who took her sister from her.
