First Trailer and Roof-Busting Poster for ‘August Osage County’ with Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts and more
The Weinstein Company’s dark comedy ensemble pic August Osage County released the first trailer earlier (it can be seen below). The film has a bevy of big names, including (but not limited to) Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ewan McGregor, and Abigail Breslin.
TV producer John Wells (The West Wing) is directing the movie based on Tracy Letts’ popular play of the same name. The film will release August 8, 2013, just in time for awards season.
The plot goes as follows: After the death of their father, a family comes together and begin to work out their problems. Sound like a subject ripe with drama? Well, as the tagline says: “Misery loves family.”
