TRAILER: Amelia...

Not to be outdone, Fox Searchlight, one to always try and get their mid major name in Oscar's golden cap, they have decided to, a day after the Academy announced they were upping the Best Picture nominee count to ten, have released the first trailer for their upcoming Mira Nair directed film, Amelia.

While Amelia Earhart has already been played on screen this year already, I think Swank, like Amy Adams, is a phenomenal actress, so she should do quite stellar in this role. Don't get me wrong, I love Adams and those brown pants she wore in Night at The Museum 2, but I think this is going to be a much more serious look at the historical figure. Joining her are Ewan McGregor, Richard Gere, Virginia Madsen, Joe Anderson, Christopher Eccleston, and Mia Wasikowska. The film looks, at least in this trailer, gorgeous, if albeit a little bit of "Oscar bait." However, I love Mira Nair, and this cast is hard to argue with. What do YOU think? Let me know after you check out the trailer below!

Amelia is directed by Indian filmmaker Mira Nair, of Monsoon Wedding, Vanity Fair, and The Namesake previously. The screenplay was written by Oscar winning writer Ronald Bass, of a great amount of films including Rain Man, When a Man Loves a Woman, Dangerous Minds, Waiting to Exhale, My Best Friend's Wedding, What Dreams May Come, Entrapment, and Mozart and the Whale most recently. This is based on numerous biographies of Amelia Earhart written by authors Susan Butler, Mary Lovell, and Elgen Long. Fox Searchlight will finally be bringing Amelia to limited theaters starting on October 23rd this fall

Go see something good!
