'Winnie' Gets a New Trailer
Winnie finally gets a new trailer. The Canadian-South African co-production tells of the love story of Nelson and Winnie Mandela, played by Terrence Howard and Jennifer Hudson. I caught the film when it played at TIFF 2011 (review here) and it's worth checking out since it features one hell of a performance by Jennifer Hudson. I had mixed feelings about the film itself, but it screened as a rough cut and I believe that some of things that prevented me from appreciating the film fully (temp. score and awkward visuals) might have since been fixed. (I'll give it a second go.) This trailer also gives a hint at the new song performed by Hudson, which plays during the end credits. (The credits didn't make the TIFF cut, either, so I can't say much else about the song.) Regardless, chalk Winnie up to the list of strong female performances for 2012 and see the film when it begins its Canadian release on October 5th from D Films.
