The first trailer for director Pascal Chaumeil’s (Heartbreaker) adaptation of the Nick Hornby novel A Long Way Down has landed online.  The story revolves around a group of strangers who coincidentally meet on the top of a London skyscraper on New Year’s Eve where they individually had gone to commit suicide.  The four strangers make a pact to stay alive until Valentine’s Day, and the film follows this group of unlikely friends “as they try to pull back from the brink.”  The pic looks to be a solid comedic drama ensemble piece with impressive turns from Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul, and Imogen Poots as the four strangers.  Hornby’s novels have previously made for the swell adaptations High Fidelity and About a Boy, so hopefully A Long Way Down can follow in their footsteps.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer and to check out the first poster.  The film also stars Rosamund Pike, Sam Neill, and Tuppence MiddletonA Long Way Down opens in the U.K. on March 21st and is currently awaiting a U.S. release date.

Here’s the official synopsis for A Long Way Down:

New Year’s Eve on the top of a London skyscraper. MARTIN (Brosnan) is literally on the edge. A once-beloved TV personality, he’s now desperate to jump. But he’s not alone. Single mother MAUREEN, (Collette), sassy teen JESS (Poots), and failed musician turned pizza-delivery boy JJ (Paul), have all turned up on the same roof with the same plan.

Instead of jumping, these four strangers make a pact to stay alive and stay together until Valentine’s Day at least.  Both funny and poignant, A LONG WAY DOWN follows this group of unlikely friends as they try to pull back from the brink.
