The new trailer has dropped for 'The Whale' starring Brendan Fraser.
The new A24 drama, based on the Drama Desk Award-winning stageplay from Samuel D. Hunter, stars Fraser as Charlie, who is trying to reconnect with his estranged teenage daughter Ellie (Sadie Sink of “Stranger Things” fame).
The slow and brooding teaser clip starts with shots of a lived-in apartment, before Fraser’s character is seen looking out the kitchen window at a bird who alighted there.
“Do you ever get the feeling that people are incapable of not caring?” he asks in voice over, as shots of costar Hong Chau (“Downsizing”) and Sink are seen.
“People are amazing,” Charlie then says, while wearing an oxygen tube under his nose.
Fraser, whose film credits have thinned in recent years after he enjoyed action star-status in the early aughts thanks to the “Mummy” franchise, received a prolonged standing ovation for his turn in “The Whale” at the Venice Film Festival in September.
I'm looking forward to this one!
