I will admit, I rag on Sandra Bullock a lot for starring in lack luster romantic comedies, but her upcoming film The Blind Side is going for the uber dramatic. The film’s trailer was recently released, and it takes advantage of every opportunity to make you cry. The Blind Side is based on a true story about a mother and a wife who helps a young, impoverished teenager better his life. Tim McGraw co-stars in the film, which obviously takes place in the South due to the strong accents being displayed.
Check out the trailer after the jump.
The film is set for release on November 20th. I’m assuming the studio is trying to gain some momentum off of the holiday season. Is it just me or did this trailer lay it on pretty thick? I mean it was really, really melodramatic. They even had The Fray’s song, “How to Save a Life” playing in the beginning. The only thing that could have made this sadder, is if Coldplay‘s Chris Martin came in with some vocals.
What do you think of the trailer for The Blind Side?
