You really can’t question Richard Linklater’s commitment to a project.  Take Boyhood as a prime example: the writer/director filmed this ambitious drama over the course of 12 years, not due to budget issues or breaches of contracts, but because he intended to capture a few scenes of one boy’s life in each year from age 5 to 18.  Played by Ellar Coltrane, who viewers literally get to see grow up on screen, Mason’s journey from childhood into adolescence is captured on film, along with all of his life’s events that act as waypoints throughout the years.

We have a few new images from Boyhood that feature Coltrane alongside his on-screen parental co-stars Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette, along with information on the film’s soundtrack, the span of which is almost as impressive as the film itself.  Make sure to check out Boyhood’s trailer here, and take a look at Matt’s Sundance review, if you’re so inclined, before the film opens July 11th.  Hit the jump for more.

Here’s the official synopsis for Boyhood:

Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater’s BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason’s parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay’s Yellow to Arcade Fire’s Deep Blue. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It’s impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.
