Coming Distractions: Aaron Paul’s a troubled family man in The 9th Life Of Louis Drax trailer

The sinister daddening of Aaron Paul continues, with a trailer released today for The 9th Life Of Louis Drax. In the film—based on Liz Jensen’s 2005 novel—the Breaking Bad and The Path star appears as the “violent” father of the titular semi-lucky kid, whose tendency to get into dangerous accidents once a year culminates in a cliffside fall that renders him (briefly) dead. Louis’ case attracts the interest of a coma researcher (50 Shades Of Grey’s Jamie Dornan, footloose and flogger free), who goes into the kid’s head to discover whether Paul’s father character is linked to the incidents. (Also, he totally falls in love with the kid’s mom, played by Sarah Gadon, despite the looming and disapproving glare of a mentor-y Oliver Platt.)
