The trailers for August: Osage County have been okay – but this trailer offers something we never thought we’d see – a full-on fight between Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep! Now isn’t that something you’d pay to see?
Based on Terry Letts’ Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning play, the film is about the dysfunctional Weston family and the daughters who have gone their separate ways, until a crisis brings them back to their Midwestern home. The impressive cast also includes Ewan McGregor, Benedict Cumberbatch, Abigail Breslin, Chris Cooper, Juliette Lewis, Dermot Mulroney and Sam Shepard.
John Wells directs. The movie is due for an Oscar qualifying run in the US this Christmas, which a UK release set for mid January.
