'The Book Thief' First Look Photos and Trailer

Based on the globally acclaimed best-selling book “The Book Thief” by Australian author Markus Zusak, 20th Century Fox’s latest movie of the same title introduces us to a German girl named Liesel Meminger at the heart of the story. Set during World War II in Germany in January of 1939, Sophie Nélisse takes on the role of 9-year old Liesel – a foster girl living outside of Munich brought to a community where she discovers her ultimate passion – books. Liesel is brought to her foster parents, Hans (Geoffrey Rush)and Rosa Hubermann (Emily Watson) while her younger brother Werner dies along the way to the Hubermanns. In the cemetery where her brother is buried, a book entitled “The Grave Digger’s Handbook” found its way to Liesel’s hands, the first of her collection, from which she’d eventually become “The Book Thief.”

The powerful material that is “The Book Thief” is transformed into an affirming, life changing movie from the production team that brought “Life of Pi”.

Soon to steal our hearts, “The Book Thief” will open February 19, 2014 in cinemas from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
