    Someone else has said this already but it’s basically impossible to predict how HoG is actually going to do based on that trailer because there’s so little of the film’s actual content in it. It’s just a marketing tool based almost exclusively on the film’s star power and is really clearly not a finished product. Why they put it out so early is a bit confusing as why not wait until they were closer to picture lock, but it has done exactly what it intended to do – whetted the appetite of its audience. The hype train is unreal.

    Where I am Adam Driver has been trending on Twitter for four straight days and Gaga for two. These MGM folks know what they’re doing, and that’s why there are shots like them making out in a bathtub in the trailer rather than IDK, Al Pacino and Jeremy Irons shouting at each other.

    Nailed it.

    About Gaga’s accent, I’m Italian born and bred. She sounds Russian to me LMAO but I’ll watch it regardless. Also, is that George Clooney’s villa no Lake Como? It sure looks like it.

    PS: I usually read but never comment. 😊

    Based on the trailer this looks like more of a commercial play to me? Very camp as has been said.  But it’s hard to base judgments on what was shown (and I wonder generally how people can make such broad judgments about a performance from 90 seconds?) I’m intrigued though!

    Trailer has 2.6M views on MGM YT in 12 hours which is fantastic. In comparison, TLD has 3.9M YT views since July 20.  HoG is gonna blow past that number in a day and a half.  Make no mistake, this is Scott’s commercial and awards play. It’s coming hard for:

    Picture (quirky take on real life events a la WOWS and I Tonya)

    Director (legend nails a movie that isn’t in his wheelhouse)

    Actress (role to kill for nuff said)

    Supporting Actor (transformative prostehtics s***)

    Crafts (Captain Obvious)

    Other possibilities:

    Adapted

    Editing

    Best Actor (while the trailer doesn’t highlight Driver, you can see that he’s in a lot of scenes, has a lot to do, and has an arc)

    Trailer is also gettting raves so there’s genuine ethusiasm for it. Should play like gangbusters with women and gays which usually translates to legs.

    I get that driver fans are worried that he might miss for any of his 3 movies but Oscars are not be all and end all and he’s having a terrific year – sings while having sex, fights in a duel, romances Lady Gaga and turns into a centaur. Top that (spoiler: you can’t).

     No offence, but your obsession with The Last Duel and (its release date) is really weird. Of the two Scott films, HoG was always going to get more attention because of Gaga’s involvement. How can you already declare it Scott’s main awards play when the two films haven’t been released? Nobody will know for sure until reactions are out and people have seen them.

    And that all happened just in July (though apparently the ad campaign was shot in 2019 and delayed because pandemic).

    HoG is more awards friendly than TLD. Quirky takes on real life/historical events such as WOWS, I Tonya, Jojo Rabbit, Tarantino movies are popular with AMPAS.  OTOH, the last historical epic from medieval times that was nominated/won was Braveheart. You can cheat with LOTR but that doesn’t move the needle in Medieval movie’s favor. They are simply not popular with AMPAS or even boxoffice (also see Scott’s Kingdom of Heaven and Robin Hood).

    I agree HoG has the less challenging subject matter. But like I already mentioned, no one will know for sure until people have seen them. That applies to other contenders as well. Also: I, Tonya didn’t get nominated for Best Picture.

    Oh for sure. And TLD is taking festival route, at least venice (should hit at least Toronto too for more exposure) so we will know about that one first. I also expect some word on HoG from test screening or friends&family one.

    Gaga’s accent is already iconic. Count Dracula could never!
