This is either going to storm through the awards season, or fall flat on its face.
I can’t decide if this is going to be 2019’s Green Book or not. Big name actors, terrible accents, a period piece, it truly has all the makings of an Oscar contender. If this was made in the 90s, boy it would be considered one of the best movies of all time probably. But like Michael B Jordan, Jamie Foxx and Brie Larson, how can you not be at least a little bit intrigued. If the trailer didn’t turn you off at least.
I don’t think the trailer is very good, I’m so tired of these kinds of movies being over shadowed by a sappy song in their trailers. Show me some heart. If you have these three talented people in your movie, show them off a little bit. Not saying some classic dialogue from a movie like this. The accents are terrible, that’s one thing that could be unforgivable about Just Mercy, but it’s hard to tell what kind of movie this is going to be because of the messy trailer. My gut says this will be a contender for all sorts of awards come Oscar season. I also know that I will go see anything with Michael B Jordan. His streak of movies without taking his shirt off is officially over.
