Hope you’re ready for Lee Daniels’ The Butler, ’cause (in case you forgot) this historical (star-studded) drama opens tomorrow! Today, we’re here to take another look at Forest Whitaker and the company, and to share another (let us add: much better) trailer for the whole thing. Entitled Faith, this brand new video definitely looks promising, head inside to take a look…
You already know, but we will once again remind you that, beside Whitaker, the rest of The Butler cast includes Oprah Winfrey, Mariah Carey, John Cusack, Jane Fonda, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Terrence Howard, Minka Kelly, Lenny Kravitz, James Marsden, David Oyelowo, Alex Pettyfer, Vanessa Redgrave, Alan Rickman, Liev Schreiber and Robin Williams.
Daniels directed the movie from a script written by Danny Strong, which will tell us the story of Cecil Gaines, an African-American who eyewitnesses notable events of the 20th century during his 34-year tenure serving as a White House butler.
In other words:
The film traces the dramatic changes that swept American society during this time, from the civil rights movement to Vietnam and beyond, and how those changes affected this man’s life and family.
For those of you who may have missed our previous reports, we definitely recommend you to check out another trailer, more clips, images and posters for the movie which (as we said) is set to hit theaters tomorrow, August 15th, 2013.
