The first trailer, poster, and new images have been released for Alexander Payne‘s Nebraska. The film stars Bruce Dern as a man who believes he’s won a million dollars in a sweepstakes, and plans to go to Nebraska to get it. Complications arise when everyone in his town believes he’s already a millionaire. I like the 60s-70s vibe of the trailer and poster, and it looks like Payne is going for something subdued like Sideways rather than something more mainstream like The Descendants. Either way, it looks damn good, and I’m excited to see it next month at the New York Film Festival.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer, poster, and new images. The film also stars Will Forte, Bob Odenkirk, Stacy Keach, and June Squibb. Nebraska opens November 15th.

Here’s the official synopsis:
After receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail, a cantankerous father (Bruce Dern) thinks he’s struck it rich, and wrangles his son (Will Forte) into taking a road trip to claim the fortune. Shot in black and white across four states, Nebraska tells the stories of family life in the heartland of America.
