Gary looks nothing like himself. Extremely impressive transformation.
I liked both Imitation Game and The Kings speech but this awful trailer makes it look like obnoxious combo of both. But Dillane is there so I will see it
What did you find awful about it?
Granted, a few of the battle shots were a bit iffy, but otherwise I found it to be a quite effective trailer. I'll watch Gary Oldman deliver speeches to epic music all day every day.
That card with Oldman is Churchill was so early in the trailer and so bizare. And I dont like what he is doing there - seems very effortful I never had that impression looking at him in any of his other roles before so watching this trailer was just very strange. Looks like a trailer for BBC TV movie.
I imagine they wanted to show the more flashy material in the trailer, hence the epic music and all the speechifying. Kris Tapley saw the CinemaCon footage and he noted that there was a tonal difference between that footage and this trailer. So I think they're just trying to sell the movie to the general audience.
I've read the script for this. It's nothing particularly outstanding, but it's certainly a safe script. It's basically the Gary Oldman show, though, and don't let the trailer deceive you. He won't be shouting and waiving his arms the entire film. There are scenes that are quieter and more nuanced for sure.
I don't know if I agree with that assessment of Oldman's performance from the trailer. It could be a very good performance, but it doesn't feel or sound like the real thing to me. The "we shall fight on the beaches" speech is way too bombastic and overly dramatic and Oldman doesn't really nail the voice. The real speech has a more restrained and classical delivery, which personifies the old "stiff upper lip" English ideal of courage and determination.
The speech in the House of Commons wasn't actually recorded in the moment. The audio everybody knows was a recording Churchill did later on for the radio. His actual delivery to the House would have had a bit more life to it, and since we don't have a recording of Churchill's first delivery of that speech, Oldman has some creative liberty there.
I had the same impressions but like I said imho it is a poor trailer so that affects it too
When he's yelling at the guy for interrupting him, he just sounds like Gary Oldman. At other points he sounds good though.
I'm aware, but Churchill's rhetorical style was generally more restrained and classical was my point. He wrote and spoke his speeches in oven verse.
Saw the trailer at the movies couple of days ago and was very impressed with what I saw.
Gary Oldman is definitely talented enough to do this role,keen to see it!
Yeah his accent slips here and there in the trailer. In my experience, it is difficult to maintain an artificial accent when raising one's voice to high levels, so I'm usually pretty forgiving of actors when it comes to that.
Unless, of course, you're a freak of nature like Daniel Day-Lewis.
Oldman always slips his accent when yelling.
Trailer looks pretty good I think, one things for certain the makeup that's been done on Oldman is outstanding. Interested to see this when it releases.
Also interested in seeing the Brian Cox Churchill movie, although couldn't find the time to see it when it was in the cinema unfortunately.
The makeup looks a bit iffy in the bunker scene when he's yelling at Halifax (due to the saturation you can see where the makeup ends and Oldman's face begins), but otherwise it looks pretty damn great.
Thank you, Kane.
Any chance you could make a better version of this one?
Twitter reactions are coming out of Telluride. I'd post them if I knew how.
Yeah, Oldman's coming for that Oscar. Sasha Stone (Awards Daily) says his performance is on the same level as Philip Seymour Hoffman in Capote.
I completely forgot about that Boom...
No worries. For whatever reason GIFs for this movie have been hard to come by, so you've been a lifesaver. Much appreciated, Kane.
We may be looking at Oldman and Nolan winning Oscars in the same year.
Guys... this might finally be it.
Nice to hear. Sadly I will never see Alan Rickman's first nomination, but I might see Gary Oldman's first victory!
