    The original won the Foreign Language Oscar…this looks very baity (especially for Julia Roberts and possibly Chiwetel Ejiofor)….what do you think Goldderby?

    Will this be a player?

    I totally LOVE the original. This looks like it will be interesting. Ejiofor looks great, Roberts seems solid, Kidman was there. I’m excited. Seeing that one shot of the stadium brought back the memory of the same scene in the original, and I honestly hope they film it the same way. That scene was incredible, intense and inspired. I don’t know if it will have much awards success, but I will definitely be seeing it in the theatre.

    It should lose points for being an English remake of a recent film. That’s tacky.

    Roberts would be earning her fifth nomination
    Kidman her fourth nomination
    And Ejiofor his second

    The original was good, with well-drawn characters and an interesting plotline, but I much preferred “The White Ribbon” of the five Oscar nominees.  I don’t see the remake causing any great shakes come awards time.

    This looks great for Roberts, but it doesn’t look that amazing. That release date doesn’t inspire much either. 

    I don’t remember that original storyline that well, but I know it was very different from this “remake”.

    As for the stadium scene, I can understand why they would bother with it, but common, nothing beats the original in that department.

    I don’t know. It seems like a made for TV movie. If it does fare well, then I can imagine Julia Roberts getting some traction. She looks to have the baitiest role of the bunch as she plays the grieving mother while de glamming (no makeup, wearing frumpy clothes). The deglamming tactic worked for Halle Berry, Renee Zellweger, and Charlize Theron, but not so much with Jennifer Aniston. So we’ll see.

    Really? I’m expecting potential awards material but the trailer is disappointing to me. Looks hollywoofied af. Almost like a low profile autumn thriller. I don’t know. If you going to remake some recent foreign film the least you can do is have a valid reason to remake it in first place; hope I’m wrong and this doesn’t turn out an impersonal dumbed excuse to skip subtitles.

    It’s just the trailer though. Hopefully a bad first impression.

    Yeah, I’m not really expecting too much out of this, awards-wise. It really gives the feeling of a typical “let’s sand out the edges to make it palatable for US audiences” sort of thing.

    Then again, Billy Ray does have a pretty good track record, at least as far as critical reception goes, so I can wait and see how it turns out. If it’s half as good as Shattered Glass, I’ll probably be happy.

    I always saw Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman as polar opposites so it will be interesting to see how their different personalities and acting styles will clash on-screen. Nicole’s role look one-note but still let’s hope she will break her unfortunate streak she experiences since “Paperboy”. From the trailer it looks like Julia gets more gritty than ever, interesting direction after “August. Osage County”. And good for Chiwetel Eijofor for being in that company and landing himself great roles.

    I haven’t seen the original one and I don’t know the story at all.
    But I bet that even if the trailer looks like a Roberts’ show, Kidman’s role has to be a key role.
    No way she signed simply to support Julia Roberts.

    Haven’t seen the original, but this looks just like a thriller, and the kind that wont get anywhere near the awards race…
    Looks fun though…

    Eh I saw the trailer today and it looks ok. I like the cast so I might check it out if it gets good enough reviews. If not I’ll wait until rental
