Over the course of his career, especially last year with The Paperboy, we’ve had some choice words for director Lee Daniels. The trailer for his upcoming film, The Butler has hit the web and all we can say is WOW!!!!!
The film is based on the life of Eugene Allen (Forest Whitaker), a real-life butler who served seven sitting Presidents of the United States in the White House until his retirement in 1986. All we can say that if the movie is half as engrossing as the trailer and with a fall release date . . . dare we say it?
The Butler boasts a powerhouse casts which also includes Alex Pettyfer, John Cusack, Robin Williams, Alan Rickman, James Marsden, Minka Kelly, Lenny Kravitz, Jesse Williams, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Mariah Carey, Oprah Winfrey, Liev Schreiber, Nelsan Ellis, Jane Fonda, Melissa Leo, Terrence Howard, Vanessa Redgrave, Yaya DaCosta and David Oyelowo
The film opens in theaters on October 18, 2013.
