The Other Boleyn Girl trailer online
The trailer for The Other Boleyn Girl has just arrived at Filmstalker in three different formats with three different sizes each, that means there's loads of ways to watch it.
The film features Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, and Eric Bana, the ladies playing the Boleyn sisters and Bana playing Henry VIII.
Here's the official blurb for the film.
"When rumours begin to circulate that King Henry VIII (Bana) is no longer intimate with his wife who has been unable to give him a male heir, Sir Thomas Boleyn concocts a plan to bring his family back to prominence: his daughter Anne (Portman) shall seduce the King and provide him with a son. However, the scheme goes off course when the King takes to the other Boleyn girl, Anne's younger sister and best friend Mary (Johansson).
Although married already, Mary gives in to family pressure and reluctantly provides the King with a boy, but along the way, she finds herself falling in love with the surprisingly tender monarch. Of course, this love affair is no obstacle for Anne whose hunger for the throne now overpowers her sisterly love, and she enacts a plan that eventually tears her family and her country apart while leading to her legendary demise."
What a time to live in, especially if you had the status to charm both of these ladies.
I'm rather interested in the film for other reasons though, as it promises a lot from the script in terms of character and relationships. Well, that's what I'm hoping and that it doesn't fall fowl of the usual heaving bossoms and men without morals.
I think that The Other Boleyn Girl might overcome those problems and give us something special. Hands up who thinks so?
