Ever since pictures of Madonna shooting new flick W.E. emerged last year, we’ve been patiently waiting for the film to arrive.
The movie may have received mixed reviews, but when the very first trailer debuted online this morning, we must admit we were pleasantly surprised.
GORGEOUS W.E. MOVIE STILLS
Starring a hot young Hollywood cast – including Abbie Cornish, James D’Arcy, and Brighton Rocks’ Andrea Riseborough – the two-tiered historical flick has been almost three years in the making.
The movie focuses the controversial affair betweenKing Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson in the 1930s, and a parallel, modern-day romance between a Russian security guard and a married woman.
Stunningly beautiful and uber-stylish, we'll certianly be first in line to see this one...
Madonna's period drama "W.E." finally gets its first trailer available online. The fresh video highlights the secret romance between two different couples. Aside from presenting plenty of romantic scenes, the trailer shows a beautiful cinematography by Hagen Bogdanski.
"W.E." tells the story of two love affairs. The first one is a secret romance between King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson that led to the British royal abdicating from the throne to marry his divorcee lover. The second, meanwhile, is about a lonely wife in New York, Wally Winthrop, who becomes the secret lover of a Russian security guard.
The film, which marks Madonna's second directorial effort after "Filth and Wisdom" in 2008, was premiered during the 68th Venice Film Festival last September, and is slated to open in limited U.S. theaters on December 9. The movie stars Andrea Riseborough, James D'Arcy, Abbie Cornish, Oscar Isaac, Judy Parfitt, Geoffrey Palmer and James Fox.
