Nebraska not only made up for its $17 million production budget, it also secured six Oscar nominations at the Academy Awards last year, including Best Picture, Best Actor (Bruce Dern), and Best Director (Alexander Payne). The movie was filmed entirely in black-and-white and featured actors Bruce Dern, Will Forte, Bob Odenkirk, and Stacy Keach, working from a screenplay by Bob Nelson. Now Paramount will be airing a color-version of the film on their television network Epix this Sunday, August 10, 2014. Apparently Payne had had to make a color-version of the film that he never intended to release, but did so because of contract stipulations in certain countries that accepted only color pictures. Nebraska is the story of an estranged son (Will Forte) and his developing relationship with his alcoholic father (Bruce Dern) as they journey from Montana to Nebraska in order to claim a $1 million sweepstakes prize. Check out the trailer here on MADE, then be sure to go out and rent a copy for yourself, and remember, if you’re not a fan of black-and-white, the color-version airs on Epix this Sunday…check your local listings!
