Sandra Bullock is trading in romantic comedy for a full-blown sports drama (great!). From The Rookie director, John Lee Hancock comes The Blind Side, a true story based on the real life events of All-American football star Michael Oher. The film is scheduled for release on November 20th, and we have the official poster and a new trailer which is just as good as the first one, if not better.
Take a peek below…
This second trailer starts on a much lighter note than the previous one, by showing off Bullock’s sassy character as a woman who refuses to be pushed around. This time we actually see a glimpse of Michael Oher’s (Quinton Aaron) harsh childhood, and I’ll admit I got a little teary eyed.
The Blind Side also stars Tim McGraw (Friday Night Lights) and Oscar-winner Kathy Bates. The good thing about this film is that the director knows what he’s doing when it comes to these types of dramas. Not only did Hancock helm The Rookie, but he also wrote the screenplay for this film, which was based on the book The Blind Side: Evolution of the Game.
While Bullock’s latest trade of love for sport might not come as a shock to many of us (especially after her last film bombed), we can all agree that Aaron’s portrayal of Michael Oher is a performance worth seeing.
Now, tell us what do you think of the new trailer for The Blind Side?
