A few days ago, Lionsgate debuted a trailer on Oprah.com for second time Director Lee Daniels’ upcoming film Precious, but I just found it hiding over on FirstShowing.net. This if one of those trailers that you need to see. The film premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival and was easily one of the most loved and talked about films to come out of the festival. It won the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award and is currently being promoted by the big O herself. The film was adapted from a book titled “Push” and was adapted by new-comer Damien Paul.
Without giving too much away, check out the trailer below…
In Harlem, an overweight, illiterate teen who is pregnant with her second child is invited to enroll in an alternative school in hopes that her life can head in a new direction.
Tell me that didn’t get you just a little bit chocked up? I don’t see how you couldn’t. First time actress Gabourey ‘Gabby’ Sidibe looks she may be giving one of the best, most honest performances of the year.
And did you notice Mariah Carey?!? I didn’t. Go back and watch it again. That’s her with the heavy bangs. And she actually looks like she might be able to act!
The only thing I didn’t like was the “I love you” line. I thought it was pushing a bit too much, but hey, this is a trailer!
The film will be in theaters on November 6th 2009.
Will you go and see it?
