Official Trailer for Mira Nair's 'Amelia' Starring Hilary Swank
Fox Searchlight has just debuted the trailer for Mira Nair's Amelia, the biopic starring Hilary Swank as Amelia Earhart. In addition to Swank, this also stars Ewan McGregor, Richard Gere, Virginia Madsen, Joe Anderson, Christopher Eccleston, and Mia Wasikowska. I will admit that I think Amy Adams plays a much cuter Amelia Earhart (in Night at the Museum 2), but Swank plays a much more realistic one. This looks like a great biopic but not much more. I'm sure it'll still be a wonderful film, as Mira Nair is a talented filmmaker, but like with The Aviator, I don't expect to love it. Anyway, let us know what you think of this!

Amelia is directed by Indian filmmaker Mira Nair, of Monsoon Wedding, Vanity Fair, and The Namesake previously. The screenplay was written by Oscar winning writer Ronald Bass, of a great amount of films including Rain Man, When a Man Loves a Woman, Dangerous Minds, Waiting to Exhale, My Best Friend's Wedding, What Dreams May Come, Entrapment, and Mozart and the Whale most recently. This is based on numerous biographies of Amelia Earhart written by authors Susan Butler, Mary Lovell, and Elgen Long. Fox Searchlight will finally be bringing Amelia to limited theaters starting on October 23rd this fall.
