W.E. trailer actually looks good

WE.jpgI know that we're hearing all sorts of things about the Madonna film W.E., and mainly they're all bad, but I have to admit that the trailer looks rather good and doesn't portray the film that a lot of critics have been talking about.

While it isn't setting me on fire and really making me want to go and see the film, the trailer doesn't present a bad film, or even a poor one. It gets the story across well and presents the characters as it needs to do, it also gets across the key point that this is from the female point of view, and all in all it doesn't look bad at all.

Of course reading the critical reviews of the film present a different picture, but that isn't stopping the film opening in New York and Los Angeles for one week in early December in order to try and grab the attention of the Oscars, and there has to be a chance considering the cast includes:

Abbie Cornish, Oscar Isaac, James D'Arcy, Andrea Riseborough, Natalie Dormer, Richard Coyle, James Fox and Laurence Fox.

Here's the blurb for W.E.:

W.E. tells the story of two fragile but determined women - Wally Winthrop and Wallis Simpson - separated by more than six decades. In 1998, lonely New Yorker Wally Winthrop (Cornish) is obsessed with what she perceives as the ultimate love story: King Edward's VIII's abdication of the British throne for the woman he loved, American divorcée Wallis Simpson. But Wally's research, including several visits to the Sotheby's auction of the Windsor Estate, reveals that the couple's life together was not as perfect as she thought. Weaving back and forth in time, W.E. intertwines Wally's journey of discovery in New York with the story of Wallis (Riseborough) and Edward (D'Arcy), from the glamorous early days of their romance to the slow unraveling of their lives in the decades that followed.

Now onto the trailer, which you can see through Coming Soon right here:

Well then, W.E. doesn't look as bad as it's been made out to be does it? If it's going for Oscar contention they've got to believe they have a chance at nominations at least.
