Acclaimed filmmaker Todd Haynes, of "Carol" and "Far from Heaven" fame, is back with another highly ambitious and visually striking period drama "Wonderstruck," for which a teaser trailer has just been released.

The film, which features Julianne Moore, Michelle Williams, and James Urbaniak in the supporting cast, is a children-centric, fable-like drama that tells the parallel stories of two lonely 12-year-olds, Ben and Rose (played by "Pete's Dragon" star Oakes Fegley and newcomer Millicent Simmonds), who suffer from the same hearing affliction, though are living in two different time periods: 1977 Gunflint, Minnesota and 1927 Hoboken, New Jersey.

Based on the best-selling illustrated children's novel by award-winning illustrator and writer Brian Selznick (The Invention of Hugo Cabret), who also wrote the adapted screenplay, "Wonderstruck" received mostly positive reviews when it made its world premiere at Cannes this year.

Acquired by Amazon Studios, with theatrical distribution to be handled by Roadside Attractions, "Wonderstruck" is due to hit theaters October 20 with a VOD release to follow.

Based on Brian Selznick's critically acclaimed novel Ben and Rose are children from two different eras who secretly wish their lives were different. Ben longs for the father he has never known, while Rose dreams of a mysterious actress whose life she chronicles in a scrapbook. When Ben discovers a puzzling clue in his home and Rose reads an enticing headline in the newspaper, both children set out on quests to find what they are missing that unfold with mesmerizing symmetry.
