Morning Glory international trailer
There's undoubtedly a formulaic story right at the heart of Morning Glory, and you don't have to look at it hard to see it. You know how it's going to play out and what's going to happen from the first few seconds of any of the trailers, but that there are some cool sketches thrown throughout the film as part of the morning show to give it a twist.
Yet, there's also something warming about a story you know and you want to play out that way with characters and actors you like watching and might just give you a few laughs along the way, and I think that's how Morning Glory is turning out.
The film stars Rachel McAdams as the producer hired to try and keep the morning television show Morning Glory going, and in doing so she asks an old, well established anchorman in the form of Harrison Ford to join the show. He does, and there's instant hatred between the two presenters, he and the long running host played by Diane Keaton.
It looks a fun set-up and the actors are great, there's also Patrick Wilson and Jeff Goldblum, and the writer Aline Brosh McKenna has reeled off a number of romanticised tales of people succeeding in their goals despite everything going wrong around them, and it's directed by Roger Michell who has some similar films to his name as well as a few more interesting and character based films.
Looking at that it does seem a lot more than the trailers might present, but at least it's going to be fun, isn't it?
Here's the new trailer for Morning Glory:
