The first trailer has just been released for Lenny Abrahamson's drama thriller Room.

The film stars Brie Larson as a woman battling to give her five year old son (Jacob Tremblay) a childhood despite being caged in a ten foot by ten foot room, a room in which he was born and in which they remain held captive.

Also starring in the film, which was shot at Pinewood Studios and on location in Toronto and post-produced at Screen Scene in Dublin, are Sean Bridgers, Megan Park, Joan Allen and William H Macy.

Emma Donoghue adapted the screenplay from her book, the award-winning international best-seller, Room.

International rights for the film sold out at Cannes earlier this year and it will be screened at the upcoming 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.
