It's been seven long years since Peter Weir has had a directorial effort in theaters. A six time Academy Award nominee for great films like Witness, Dead Poets Society and The Truman Show, the man has been sorely missed, but now he's back and taking us across the span of Russia.

The Guardian has posted the first trailer for The Way Back, a film based on the novel by Slavomir Rawicz in which a group of soldiers try and make their way home after escaping from a Siberian gulag. In case you never bothered to take notice, it's not exactly an easy trip, filled with some of the harshest terrain on Earth, from frozen tundra to the Himalayan mountains. The film stars Colin Farrell, Jim Sturgess, Ed Harris, Saoirse Ronan and Mark Strong and is currently scheduled for a limited release in January (though it will be premiering in Los Angeles on December 29th so that it can be eligible for Oscar consideration). Check out the trailer below.
