First, the trailer is somewhat underwhelming despite having that beautiful score to grab your attention (totally feeling the Journey throwback) but this is giving me a little confidence in a Watts nomination. It really shows a range that I didn't fully expect from this project, and I can totally see how they are going to try and amp up the baity aspects of her life. Some it it felt a tad theatrical (that run through the woods in her purple moomoo thing was a tad unfortunate) but I can see the controversy surounding her life to play big with audiences and Awards bodies. I get the feeling that critics aren't going to be kind to this, but with the right push I can see Watts being a serious contender.
And then it brings me to the poster:
I don't hate this, like at all. It makes the movie look like an erotic thriller though, and the picture looks like a still of Kate Winslet from 'The Reader' so I'm really not sure what to make of this. I mean, is this real? Is this a fan made poster? Is that even really Naomi Watts? Still, as a poster, I kind of love this, just not for this project.
