Contest: Win 'The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby' With Jessica Chastain & James McAvoy On Blu-Ray

One of the most interesting experiments in recent years was filmmaker Ned Benson’s “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby.” Starring Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy, with great supporting help from Viola Davis, William Hurt, Isabelle Huppert, Jess Weixler, Bill Hader, and Ciarán Hinds, the indie drama looks at the dissolution of a marriage from two perspectives: the husband and the wife. And so, three versions were eventually released: “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him,” that centered on James McAvoy’s point of view; “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her,” from Chastain’s perspective; and “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them,” a condensed version that cut down ‘Her/Him’ into one version. It’s a lot to digest, but we called it a “finely tuned and tenderly detailed love story of two people told on a cosmic scale…on the year’s greatest relationship films.” And for more, you can check

For every year that is packed with awards season fodder and memorable movies that will go down in history, there is an equal number of films we wish we could erase from our memories.

The Worst of 2014 includes both people who should know better and repeat offenders, artists with a vision and hucksters out for a quick buck.

Here’s hoping the responsible parties resolve to do better in 2015.

Jessica Chastain’s Incredible Rise

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

From a newcomer award at the Deauville Film Festival in 2011 to a career tribute this fall, two-time Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain has come a long way in just three years. This year, she has been a part of four films: Christopher Nolan’s potential best picture nominee Interstellar, which opens in select theaters Nov. 5; J.C. Chandor’s A Most Violent Year, which is opening AFI Fest Nov. 6; Liv Ullmann’s Miss Julie, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival; and Ned Benson’s The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and is a combination of 2013’s The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him.

After graduating from Juilliard in 2003, Chastain was plucked from relative obscurity by Al Pacino to star in his production of Salome at Los Angeles’ Wadsworth Theatre in 2006. Pacino chronicles

New International Trailer For The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby Shows A Love Story From Both Sides

There are two sides to every love story. And Ned Benson will tell both in this fall’s The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, which will hit the multiplex in three different versions. In October, we’ll see The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her, two separate movies which tell the story of the relationship between Conor (James McAvoy) and Eleanor (Jessica Chastain) first from Conor’s perspective, then from Eleanor’s. Before that, though, a condensed version titled The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them will arrive in September.

Though my preference is going to be for Benson’s original duology, the way he intended the movie to be viewed, all three films will undoubtedly be must-sees this fall. Now, an international trailer for Him and Her has arrived, utilizing split-screen to directly compare the two narratives. Check it out below.

Watch: New Trailer For 'The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Them' With Jessica Chastain & James McAvoy Asks For Mercy

Okay, this might be confusing at this point, but here's the deal: "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby" is coming in three flavors this year. The originally conceived, two part movie "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Him” and "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Her” will both open in limited release on October 10th. The condensed version, encompassing both narratives and simply titled “The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Them” will arrive first on September 12th. Whichever version you come across first should be on your must-see list for the fall. Starring Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy, the directorial debut from Ned Benson tracks Eleanor and Conor, who come together, fall in love and break apart. The 'Him' and 'Her' movies tell the tale from each of their perspectives, while 'Them' brings both together.

Full Version Of 'The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby' Dated For October; Plus 'Him' & 'Hers' Posters & New Photos

Full Version Of 'The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby' Dated For October; Plus 'Him' & 'Hers' Posters & New Photos
It’s a unique and ambitious endeavor, one that took almost a decade to get off the ground and one that began before Jessica Chastain became a star. First-time director Ned Benson had wanted to make a relationship movie from the perspectives of both a male and female – though in fact it began as one screenplay and when Chastain said it didn’t really represent her viewpoint, the filmmaker hit a eureka moment and expanded on his story. The rest is history. And also, what was originally two films (which premiered last year at Tiff) — "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Him” and 'The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Her” — was eventually cut into a third film entitled “The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Them” (which screen at Cannes this past spring, though when it hits theaters, the “them” will likely get dropped from the title). To clarify, ‘Them’ is the condensed version that opens on Sept.

First Trailer for The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby Starring Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy

Writer and director Ned Benson’s ambitious love story drama was created to be two different movies with each serving as a companion to the other, and when it was first shown at Tiff last year, it was in two parts as The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Him and The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Her.

As you might have realised, one took place from the point of view of James McAvoy’s character and the other from Jessica Chastian’s. However, a third version combining their stories – The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Them – will be the one which is released in cinemas later this year.

The first trailer for that has now been released, and it gives us a very good idea as to what we should expect from the movie; it’s clear to see that McAvoy and Chastain share a lot of chemistry!

James McAvoy Romances Jessica Chastain In The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby Trailer

Every romance tells an elaborate story of the perspectives from two people. This is why romances are divided as "chick flicks" versus "made for men"', and never the twain shall meet. Writer-director Ned Benson upsets this balance with The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby , which just debuted its new trailer. The road to this film's existence is fairly unusual. Benson debuted his directorial debut at Cannes this year in a wildly different form, splitting the movie into The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Him and The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Her - which are completely different films that will both gain arthouse releases through The Weinstein Company. But the studio is likely thinking Oscars with The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby, and as a means of raising the odds of that happening involves uniting the two films into one.
