As murder victim Susie Salmon watches her family from heaven, the afterlife takes the shape of her dreams and desires. In the first video teaser, Peter Jackson fills Susie's heaven, glimmering alpine scenes, and an enormous ship in a bottle.

Entertainment Tonight has teased the first clips for Jackson's adaptation of Alice Sebold's The Lovely Bones, and in addition to the earthly scenes of Susie's grieving family, we also get a few glimpses inside her heaven. Susie's apparent entrance into the afterlife is accompanied by shimmering lights, and a hyper-saturated alpine scene grows around her, complete with wildlife.

Perhaps most notably, as her father smashes the ship in a bottle that Susie helped him assemble on Earth, a giant version of the same bottled ship falls to pieces on the shores of Susie's heaven, suggesting that Jackson plans to replicate the events in the living world with fantastical exaggerations of those same events in Susie's heaven.
