Tobey Maguire goes coo-coo for Coco Puffs in the second trailer for Brothers, the upcoming drama from director Jim Sheridan. It’s a disturbing tale of love, lies, and betrayal with Maguire, Natalie Portman, and Jake Gyllenhaal at the center of it. There are a lot of people who have been waiting for a movie that would feature these three young actors starring opposite one another and finally it’s here.
Check out the latest trailer for Brothers…
This is hard for me to say, but Tobey Maguire looks like a scary badass in this movie! He must have once again gone on his Seabiscuit diet to get that frail, AWOL soldier look. The film centers on a young wife and mother (Portman) trying to put her life back together after her husband (Maguire) goes missing in Afghanistan. With the help of his younger brother (Gyllenhaal) things begin to fall back in place, that is until her husband makes a surprise return from the presumed dead.
Tobey doesn’t exactly strike fear into the hearts of audiences often, but he looks like he may be able to pull it off here. Perhaps if they gave him a haircut instead of eye liner and bangs in Spider-Man 3, his evil portrayal might have been just as believable?
