This fall, Donna Tartt's best-selling novel The Goldfinch is being adapted into a film. Here's what we know so far.

MULTIPLE TRAILERS REVEAL THE FILM'S CENTRAL MYSTERY OF A MISSING PAINTING.

The first full clip below introduces viewers to the tragic bombing that sets the film in motion, while the second, above, delves deeper into the story's grief.

For those unfamiliar with Tartt's text, it centers around a young boy, Theo Decker (played by Oakes Fegley, and later Ansel Elgort), whose mother dies in a terrorist attack on an art museum, while they are looking at the 1654 Carel Fabritius painting The Goldfinch. That painting goes missing in the aftermath of the bombing, and the lost work of art becomes central to Decker's life moving forward.

PREVIOUSLY, A FEW PHOTOS FROM THE SET OF THE FILM WERE MADE PUBLIC.

In the snaps from set, Nicole Kidman, normally a glamorous-looking 50-something-year-old, has been completely transformed by age makeup into her character, Mrs. Barbour, a wealthy, Park Avenue socialite who has taken kindly to the story's thirteen-year-old protagonist.

RECENTLY USA TODAY PUBLISHED THE FIRST STILLS FROM THE COMPLETED FILM.
